I made this simple berry decoration for above our stove.
I feel like the kitchen often gets neglected when I decorate and needed a little Christmas "Joy."
Berry "Joy" was three things I love about a project...fast, easy and cheap! I bought five stems of "berries" at Michaels. They were on sale for 99 cents each. You really only need about four. You also need ribbon, command decorating clips and pruning sheers(regular scissors aren't strong enough to clip the wire. At least mine weren't).
I twisted the top of the "J" into a loop so I could attach the ribbon.
For the "O" I used one berry stem and and tore off some little berry stems from another stem. Does that make sense? I didn't quite use two whole stems.
For the "Y" I had to cut a 3 inch piece of wire off and reattach it where I wanted to hang the ribbon. I just twisted it until I was happy with the way it hung.
I used Command decorating hooks to hand the ribbon from. These are easy to use and don't put any holes in your wall.
These are some other ways I used my left over berries...
