Melania Trump Grants A Special Christmas Wish For A Mother-Of-Two

There’s no doubt that the White House sees its fair share of mail, especially during this time of the year. One letter addressed to First Lady Melania Trump, however stood out from the rest.

Candace Schumacher, a mother of two from South Dakota, penned her Christmas wish and sent it off not expecting much to come from it.

She has always loved Christmas and especially loves to spread joy by decorating.

The mother takes a particular interest in Christmas decor and has spent years decorating other people’s homes both inside and out. She even had the opportunity to decorate the South Dakota Capitol.

Since she took such an interest in the tradition, she wanted to know who decorates the White House for Christmas, a job that always seemed overwhelming to her.

Surprised to learn that the First Lady is tasked with making every arrangement, she decided to pen a letter.

That’s when a return letter from Melania Trump made its way to Schumacher’s house, saying “her dream had just come true.”

Have you ever tried to re-create those beautiful Christmas bow’s, but instead end up with something completely different and not so beautiful? Well, lucky for you we have the step by step instructions on how to get the perfect bow for your tree!

  • burlap
  • hot glue gun
  • scissors

1. Begin by taking your burlap and cutting out four strips the following lengths….18 inches, 18 inches, 15 inches, and 4 inches.

2. Take your 18 inch strip and using your hot glue, glue the ends together to create a circle. Once completed, do the same thing with your second 15 inch piece.

3. Now glue your two circles together, with the smaller one on top.

4. Fold the bow in the middle to create the dimples of the bow. Glue the ribbon together at each fold.

5. Take your remaining 18 inch strip and place it at the bottom of your bow ensuring both ends of the equal amount hanging, then using your smallest strip wrap it around the whole bow and tail and use your hot glue to keep it in place.

6. Final step is to cut triangles out at the end of each of your bow tails.

7. Fluff your bow so it’s not flat, and then find the perfect place to show it.
