8 Ways to Craft With Ribbon

Almost everyone has extra rolls of ribbon in their home. Although the first thing that people associate with ribbon is gift wrapping, there are many other ways to repurpose those leftover bits and pieces of fabric.

It is possible to turn ribbon into hairbows, wall art, and even a chandelier! The following ten ribbon craft projects will show you how to transform colorful strips of fabric into cute craft projects.

Ribbon Wreath

This pretty wreath is perfect for winter and holiday decor. You can switch up the ribbon and flowers for a spring or summer wreath as well. We love how simple this craft is–even your kids can help you assemble for a fun crafternoon!

Ribbon Tassel Keychain

A ribbon tassel keychain is a perfect project for using up all those leftover bits of ribbon you don’t want to throw away because you love the design so much. Just attach the ribbon strands to a metal ring, and you will have a pretty keychain that you’ll always be able to find in your purse.

Ribbon Embroidery

If you have a knack for needlecrafts, you have to try your hand at this embroidery technique. Use ribbon instead of string to create a stunning textured flower bouquet.

Ribbon Heart Hair Bow

Weave red and pink ribbons into a heart and wear it as a hair bow. Although this ribbon hair bow was originally made for Valentine’s day, we think it would look sweet on a little girl any time of the year.
