Cultures around the globe have been using ribbon in their locks, around the body, or as personal ornaments. This long, narrow strip of fabric is so versatile that it can be used from everything, from wrapping presents down to accenting wedding centrepieces and bouquets. If you are like the rest of us, then you certainly have been using ribbon from an early age. Have you figured out what to do with the leftover pieces? Throwing them in the trash is not a good idea. Here are some creative ways in which you can use the ribbon. You will wish you had thought of them sooner.
Make bow ties for toasting glasses
Just about anyone can make a toast. All you have to do is to say something at the beginning of the meal and raise your glass together with others. The moment that you toast, you should use champagne flutes that say something about you and your significant other. Ribbon is a simple yet elegant accent for dressing toasting glasses. Since you have a surplus of wedding ribbons UK, you might as well use it. Tie the decorative material around the stem of the champagne flute. Ensure that you use small size ribbon and that the colour of the fabric matches the table colours.
DIY ribbon rosette flowers
With ribbon rosettes, you can decorate anything in your home. For instance, you can hang them from cupboard doors. Equally, you can stick the rosettes in a vase and have a nice-looking bouquet. Gather the ribbon scraps and start making rosettes. Make several holds and secure them with your fingers. Thread a needle and knot it making sure to pass the needle through all the threads. Unit the ends of the thread and apply glue. Finally yet importantly, rotate the folds in one direction. Use the rosettes to make floral arrangements, or use them for your craft projects.
Engage in the execution of a keychain made with ribbon
Keychains are some of those things that you cannot live without. Why spend the money that you worked so hard for on a brand new keychain when you can make your own? You have leftover ribbon, so you just have to get a cotton webbing and a key fob chain wristlet. Cut the ribbon, as well as the webbing. Nine inches should do. Place the decorative material on top of the webbing and stitch to hold it in place. Get rid of the excess threads and insert one edge into the hardware. Now, that is not complicated, is it?
