What I love about this Christmas bunting idea from Bo Bedre is three things – firstly, its simplicity using a ribbon or string with a variety of cute Christmas decorations and baubles dangling down. Secondly, it’s a great way to decorate a kitchen window. Thirdly, it’s totally tailored to you and your family as you can choose what to put on it.
