Ribbon Dancer

Hi y’all. Want to see one of the crafts I’ve been working on? It’s all finished and I hung it up today:

What is it?

Can you tell yet?

It’s a bird- it’s a plane- it’s an inspired by Martha Stewart ribbon chandelier!

To make, you’ll need:

  • several colors of complementary ribbons. I chose springtime colors.
  • a ring of some kind, about 12 inches in diameter. I used a sage green foam wreath base from Michaels because it is really lightweight and matched my green ribbon pretty well.
  • Scissors

Yep, that is all you need. Simply cut a bunch of lengths of ribbon in each color (I used different lengths so it wouldn’t be too perfect, about 2-3 feet long each). Then I tied them around the wreath somewhere in the middle, and used one long ribbon looped over a hook to hang it from the ceiling. 

That’s it. Now go make one! This entire project cost about 4 dollars using Michael’s coupons (well, free for me because of my generous family gifting me with Michaels gift cards) and it really brightens up the home!

Happy Spring! Now who wants to do an early dance around the may pole?

    How fun!! Wow – this really has endless possibilities, doesn’t it? Like, you could get a GIANT ring, and super long ribbon, and make it into a bedroom canopy for over your bed!

    You made a really beautiful one here. I love the colors that you’ve chosen. Great project!

      I know, it really does. I actually saw a cool one too that had long paper strips, almost a cross between this and a mobile. It was really cool too! I blame Martha Stewart and Pinterest.

  2. Me! I wanna dance. This could be brought on by the fact that I just watched the remake of “Footloose”, so of course I wanna dance. But in all reality, I always wanna dance!

    So cute! It looks like a craft that could be done with kids too…well for someone who doesn’t want the ribbons perfectly lined up, etc. Not that I could get Matthew to do crafts, but if he was a girl maybe!

      Definitely could be a kid craft- It was so easy and barely took any time at all. I think one episode of Once Upon a Time and it was done!
