Idea 1: make Christmas kitchen cabinet decorations with paper
This variation is super easy: we are making our kitchen cabinets looking like Christmas gifts wrapped with ribbons!
I will have the free printable pattern and paper bow tutorial on the blog soon. You can also use gift wrap paper for this.
Print the Christmas patterns and cut into 1.5” wide strips. Measure your cabinet doors, and glue the paper ribbon into one piece that is 3” plus the height of the cabinet door, another at 3” plus the width of the cabinet door.
Use painters tape to tape the ends of a paper ribbon to the back of kitchen cabinet door so it’s vertically in the middle.
Next tape the horizontal paper ribbon , but it does not have to be centered in the middle of the door. Ours is a little lower, because we liked the look better.
To finish our Christmas kitchen cabinet decorations, we used a paper bow made from the same pattern paper, tutorial coming soon! You can use ready-made gift bows too.
Isn’t this so easy and pretty?

First we made these DIY snow flocked Christmas cabinet wreaths (tutorial here) from cardboard and fresh conifer clippings.
Next tape a piece of paper looped at the top so we can glue the paper ribbon bow to the loop.
Use the same method mentioned earlier to attach a piece of paper ribbon to the cabinet door at the top, check and make sure it’s vertically centered.
We used double sided mounting tape to attach the wreath to the cabinet door. That’s it!
