Welcome to the May Arts Ribbonista Halloween Blog Hop!
I've been amazed by the projects so far...today will wrap things up, so if you
missed Monday through Thursday, visit the May Arts' blog...
**3 ROLLS OF HALLOWEEN RIBBON**
will be given away to a really-lucky commentor!
Today's hop includes the following designers (in order):
I wanted to do something a little different for my design today.
I love holiday bunting...I have a couple of different things for 4th of July and
Christmas, but I really wanted a piece that would go along with my Halloween decor.
From lengths of wired ribbon, I fashioned my own unique bunting!
This is how I went about making the bunting:
5- 18" lengths of 1.5" Solid/Pom Pom Edged Wired Ribbon
6 Yards of 1.5" Solid Checkered Wired Ribbon
Sewing machine and/or fabric glue
First, cut your pom pom ribbon into the 18" lengths.
Gently pull one of the wires from either side; leave the other wire in place.
Form each piece into a "U" shape as shown above
Next, decide how wide you would like for the piece to be.
Taking 3 yards (more/less if desired) of the check ribbon, begin gluing the loops to the
front of the check ribbon. Make sure that you leave about 24" of check ribbon at each end
so that it can be tied into a large bow.
Once all of the loops have been glued to the front of the check ribbon, attach
the second section (3 yards) on top by matching up the two pieces.
You may use fabric glue for this or machine stitch the two checkered ribbons together:
Add a small piece of wire to each side (behind the bow) so that it can be attached to
a railing or hung from a hanger.
The cute pom pom ribbon also comes in a black ribbon with orange pom poms...and
a huge variety of other colors, especially if you're thinking ahead to Christmas :)
