Ribbon Ornament or Decor

with Gwen Studios

final ornament

Gwen Studio’s ribbons make for such a colorful ornament. While this is my version, there are a lot of options you can choose when making your ribbon ornament. Consider a limited color palette, different lengths of ribbons, and different thicknesses of ribbons.

Not only does this make an ornament, but you can use it all year round as a home decor piece. I think it would look nice hanging in a doorway or as a part of a larger shelf or table display.

The close-up image shows how close the ribbons are placed.

If you are interested in a different version, here is another ornament I made for an ornament swap using materials from Dollar Tree. [tutorial]

This shows the variety of using different lengths of ribbons as well as different kinds of ribbons. It is interesting to see the visual differences when making a few different design decisions.
