Criss Cross ribbon draped Christmas tree

Hi Dearies, how are you all? Did u set up the tree yet? If you are looking for an idea to decorate the tree with the ribbon, here is one. Here is tutorial for criss cross ribbon wrapped tree.

- Measure your tree and the length of the ribbon should be 1.5 times the length of the tree.
- Take 8 such ribbon pieces and tie the edges with a safety pin.
- Spread them around the tree in 8 directions
- Start tieing two ribbons together with a string, for the first row you will have 4 joins.
- For the next round, take one each from the joined ribbons and tie them. It should look some thing like this

Breast Cancer Awareness Christmas Tree with Tree Classics

Hi Dearies,

This week was pretty special as we celebrated festival of lights (Deepawali), all set to celebrate Halloween and spent much of the weekend in setting up the Christmas Tree. Setting up Christmas Tree in October? Yup, the tree is setup for the support of breast cancer awareness month.

I was one of the bloggers who partnered with Tree Classics in spreading the awareness! This post is in honor of Supporting the Fighters, Admiring the Survivors, Honoring the Taken and NEVER EVER GIVING UP HOPE!!

Tree Classics trees are very realistic with life like branches. I selected Classic Fraser Fir (Full) - 6.5 Clear Lights and it was delivered promptly. Tree parts were neatly wrapped in the bubble wrap with additional packaging to make sure the box doesn't get squished. Setting up the tree was very quick.

This cause is pretty close to heart, this beast has hit close to base and took my Aunt away from us at an early age! I know few fighters who won against this monster. I guess any woman would be dreaded to her those three words "You have cancer". Early detention is the greatest prevention when it comes to breast cancer. All adult women are encouraged to do self examination at least once a month. Here is how to on breast self exam

The tree is with decked up in Pink and Silver with the golden ribbon draped around in crisscross fashion.

I and my little one had fun customizing the silver ornaments with pink glitter.

 A dear friend gave me these pins, aren't they adorable on the ribbon?
