Grab your leftover ribbon, scissors and creativity! It’s time to get your hands dirty with some arts and crafts that you can make using your leftover packaging supplies! Learn how to make a ribbon chandelier, tassel key chain, decorative letters, and bookmarks without burning a hole in your wallet!
Craft #1: Ribbon Chandelier:
Grab the kids and your ribbons! This is the perfect craft to make on a rainy day with students or your own kids! All it takes is some ribbon, an embroidery hoop, yarn, pom-pom makers, and scissors. Check out the step by step tutorial from ArtBar here.
Craft #2: Tassel Keychain:
Why not add just one more unnecessary addition to your heavyweight keychain?! This tassel keychain look is beyond chic and it’s super easy to make! All you need is some ribbon, a key hook, and scissors (can it get any easier?). Take a look at this how to guide from Brooklyn Berry Designs.
Craft #3: Decorative Letters:
You’ve seen the home décor that everyone has with the cute letter that reflects their name. Sometimes it’s just a wooden letter, other times, it’s glowing with lights, and other times, it’s made out of leftover ribbon! Just purchase that decorative letter at the craft store you’ve had your eyes on for years and go to town! We’ve got all the info you need on the Leisure Arts website here.
Craft #4: Bookmarks:
Reading just got way more fun with the ribbon bookmark craft! Not only is it becoming the new fashion trend, but it’s easy and inexpensive to make! You can make dozens to fill all those books you’re catching up on! So go through your old craft drawers and grab some scissors, ribbon, hair ties, thread, buttons and some needles!
