On the subject of ornaments, do you remember the ones we made for the foyer in Kathie Lee's house?
Like the Halloween special, HGTV allotted me the least amount of money out of the designers. But I'm all for a challenge, especially when it comes to delivering beautiful, budget-friendly holiday decor that looks more expensive than it is. Inspired by the water views from Kathie Lee's house, together with the tartan plaid covering walls, ceiling, and upholstery in the room just off the foyer, I headed to—where else?—my favorite Goodwill in Wappingers Falls, New York.
Next came the strips, their length and width varying according to the size of the Styrofoam ball. Each strip should be long enough to wrap entirely around the ball with enough overlap to pin securely. The width is more of an issue of scale. Larger balls require wider widths.
