In the process of getting ready for Valentine’s Day I looked for some ribbon I had used on a previous project but could not find it. This meant that I had to make a return trip to buy more. You know how this story goes, as soon as I got home I found the original ribbon. This incident is the reason I decided I needed some orginization/storage solution for my ribbon. I do not have a true craft room so I needed something small and portable. At Christmas we made these trees:
I made three bases for the trees but we only made two of the Christmas trees. The third base had been on a shelf in my kitchen waiting for me to find it a home until I needed it. It dawned on me after buying the second roll of ribbon the same color that I already owned that the Christmas tree base would be great for organizing my ribbon.
Ribbon Organizer How To:
These are the only wooden pieces I used to make the Ribbon Organizer. I purchased all at my local craft store. Additional supplies you will need is a drill and glue. Step #1- Drill a hole into the base the size of your dowel rod. Step #2 Glue the dowel rod into the hole. That’s it! I added a removable finial because of the cute factor, it serves no purpose.
The final step is that I painted the organizer. I have one blue, now one red/orange and I am painting the final one green. I think these may help me organize the ribbon in my life.
