Ribbon Streamers: A Homemade Christmas

I challenged myself about a month ago to make as many homemade gifts as I could for my children this year. We have a tradition in our little family to do 3 Gifts of Christmas.  Gift of Meaning, Gift of Usefulness and the Gift of Wonder.  The stocking is not included and can be filled with as many fun things that will fit :)  That is where my homemade challenge falls into place here. I have made several stocking stuffers and my children's gift of meaning for my 3 kids and I'll be sharing those with you over the next little bit.

Second homemade item this year are these Ribbon Streamers.

I first saw streamers on etsy, and thought how fun and easy they would be to make.  I bought very large D Rings from Joann's   They also have spools of ribbon for 50 cents each.  You simply tie your ribbon onto the rings in the length that you like.  That is it.  For around $5 I was able to make 4 streamers and I even have ribbon left over to make more. 

I am so excited to see my girls dancing around, waving these ribbon streamers as they giggle!
