DIY: Wrapping Paper & Ribbon Ornaments

Got a lot of wrapping paper and a little booze? Press pause on your frenzied holiday prep for a relaxing round of crafting and cocktails. If you're like me, you always buy too many rolls of wrapping paper and end up with pieces that aren't big enough to wrap a gift but too small to throw away. Use those extras to create fun, fabulous baubles for your tree! And if you need a last-minute gift, just pluck one of these babies off the tree. It's already wrapped!

DIY: Wrapping Paper & Ribbon Ornaments

#fbf to 1994 (ish) with my buds, @richardwiese and @wendirogerstv Bought that sport coat on sale for about 20 bucks because that’s all I had in the bank. Was 10% wool and 90% “other.” Got caught in the rain with it and smelled like wet dog ass all night.

Nine years ago, I made a vow to live my life based on three guiding principles: Love, Awe and Gratitude. Today, instead of feeling sad, angry or anxious about The Chew’s cancellation, I will look through the lens of Gratitude and thank: My cohosts, @chefsymon and @carlaphall, for being two of the greatest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. The crew and staff of The Chew for being so dedicated, hardworking and collaborative. Our viewers for allowing us into your homes each day to share a laugh and a recipe — and a cocktail. It’s been a fun run and I am so freakin’ lucky to have been a part of it. Much love, CK ❤️
