Hi, I'm Kimberly Seeherman, event design expert and owner of Events by Fabulous. Today, I'm going to show you how to decorate for a purple and white Christmas with a fun little accent that's going to look great in any room. We're going to learn how to make a purple package pillow. Do you like that alliteration? I do. So anyhow, what you're going to do is go out to the store and pick up a purple pillow. You can get one at Marshall's or Ross and really it's not an expensive investment, you're probably going to be spending under ten dollars. Now I'm sure you have some white ribbon around the house. Everyone does. Also if you're at a craft store, pick up a different color purple ribbon than the pillow you've purchased just to give a little variation in color. So this is how we're going to do it. It's super simple. We're basically going to cut a piece of ribbon, make sure we get that middle point, put that in the center of the top of the pillow and then we're literally going to wrap it like a package. Next we're going to take two purple ribbons and we're going to tie them one in one direction and one in the other to make an x over the white. Next we're going to adorn this fabulous little package with some purple ornaments. Now make sure the purple ornaments you're putting on this pillow are shatter proof ornaments. Do not use glass. This is going on your couch and someone could sit on them and definitely hurt themselves so make sure you pick up shatter proof ornaments which are usually made of plastic. They're very safe, you can sit on them, you can throw them on the floor and you're not going to have any problems. So we're going to take three of these ornaments. I like to use odd numbers because I think it just always looks better. And we're going to do two on top and one on the bottom. We're just going to wrap the wire fitting around the actual bow. And then now we're going to tie our bows. First we're going to tie our white bow. And then next we're going to tie the two purple bows over that to create a more full purple bow. And there you have it. We have this gorgeous little purple package pillow. I've cut the edges with a V shape again just to make it even cuter and I hope you enjoy this purple pillow during your holiday season.
