Halloween Ribbon Ornaments

Halloween Ribbon Ornaments

Make a Halloween tree from Shelley Detton and hang these spunky Halloween ribbon ornaments from it's dead, lifeless branches. Making fabric flowers from ribbon for Halloween is simple and fun!

Halloween Ribbon Ornaments

Materials:

  • Ribbon
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Double-sided tape
  • Needle/thread
  • Circle die-cutters in 2 different sizes

Instructions:

  1. Loop the 3 ribbon strips and sew in place with a few stitches of thread. When all three loops are secure, tie off and snip thread.


     
  2. Using double-sided tape, on one side of the bow attach a large paper circle. Attach the small circle either with a tiny piece of tape or a dot of glue.


     
  3. Flip the ornament over. Attach another piece of double-sided tape to the other side, and place an 8-inch strip of skinny ribbon onto the tape as shown. Put another piece of double-sided tape on top and place the other 2 circles in the center to cover the skinny ribbon ends. That's it! In about 5 minutes or less, you have a darling little decoration.




     
  4. If you have ribbon that is the same on both sides (as opposed to a design printed on one side like the example above), an alternative way of making them is to use short strips (these are 3 inches long) of ribbon, notch them as shown, and stitch them together in a similar fashion as the first example. With ribbon that is notched (instead of having the raw edges hidden), I like to treat the cut edges with a liquid stop-fray product to prevent the edges from fraying.
