Mama always taught us never to go halfway on anything: our hair, our homes—anything. When it comes to decorating our Christmas trees, we mean business. If you walk into a Southerner’s home during Christmastime, odds are you’re going to be overwhelmed by professional looking ribbons cascading everywhere from winding staircase to mantle. However, every Southerner knows that the real trick isn’t behind hiring a pricey decorator, but rather mastering a few tried-and-true techniques for enviable Christmas décor year after year.
If our massive collection of hair ribbons as a child weren’t foreshadowing enough, we think everything looks better dressed up with a little ribbon on it. Those extravagant Christmas tree ribbons Southerners are known for didn’t come without a little patience and a lot of practice. (After all, Rome wasn’t built in a day, y’all.) We’ve rounded up some of our favorite Christmas tree ribbon ideas, complete with a few tips and tricks Mama would definitely approve of. When it comes to Christmas tree ribbon, we say, "the more the merrier"!
