On my quest to find something cute, colorful, and fun for the girls new bedroom I had a thousand and two different ideas but for this certain project I wanted it to have a dual purpose. Pretty and functional. I like that.
It started with a frame that was once spray painted black, then in a high gloss white. Gotta love that white. Looks stunning against the blue we picked for the wall color. Which I might add is the perfect feminine blue color, and I know you’re going to ask me what color it is and silly me wrote this post without looking at the can.
Okay okay, so we have a pretty white frame, a chipped one I might add but it was a markdown at Hobby Lobby and I can’t say no to a good frame. Although our definitions of good may be different, chipped is not a biggy to me.
Time to get a bunch of different bright colored lovely ribbons. LOVE each and everyone one of these, love them I say! I threw in a little purple and pink for good measure, since those were a few of the requirements for a new bedroom.
Cut to length and glue your little hearts out! If I could find my staple gun I would have stapled it, it probably would have been faster and helped it to be as tight as possible, but alas no such luck. Trusty glue gun it is.
Don’t forget to figure out a pretty pattern, that’s important too. Even in a rainbow of colors and patterns there’s always a theme hiding in there. Always.
Hang ‘er back up and fall in love.
One thing I learned? Wire ribbon will not look tight no matter what you do. It waves and I’m okay with that, you’ll see why.
See? Can’t even tell! A pretty little ribbon holder for some pretty little girls.
