So I’ve been needing a ribbon holder for quite some time now, but never seem to find one “cute” enough. You know how that goes… :)

So about a month ago I found this(who knows what it was for) and decided it would work. I sanded it down, and then got out my drill.
I bought these wooden dowels at HL and got out the same size drill bit. Yes I did this without my husband. Be proud! haha

So after a little blue spray paint(can you tell I’m addicted?), some scrapbook paper and some fun letters it looked “cute” enough to be my ribbon holder.

This was a fun but simple project to do…and you could really make a ribbon holder out of anything you can put the dowels into.

    So cute, and I love that you were able to reuse something to make it! Maybe I'll be lucky enough to stumble onto something that good!

    This is a great ribbon rack! I may have to try and find a shelf to do this myself. I have a drawer right now, but I hate digging through it!

    Well knock my socks off, I love this idea. I am going to have to try to figure out something to try this with. I hate when I have to cut my ribbons to get them out of the pile of knots they have become in the box I store them in. You did a great job, thanks fro the inspiration.

    Very cute idea! Will have to keep an eye out for a shelf that would for for this. Thanks so much for sharing! Also good to see I am not the only one who loves to stick scrapbook paper all over things besides my scrapbook pages.

    Darling comes to mind when I see this!! I happen to have alot of ribbon needing a happy home like this. I just found a box that they fit in nicely but displaying them sounds just lovely.
    Thanks for sharing

    You have given me some AMAZING ideas for my own little projects! Now I just need to find the right stuff…and then maybe get a bigger place to put all of my new pretty things once they are complete!

  22. Courtney

    Oooh, I like! I wish I hadn't jumbled all my ribbons into a jar and could do something like this.

  23. Denise @ SpareChangeChic

    This is so cute and functional. My ribbons are stuffed into drawers and totes all around our spare room. I love the colors and paper your chose. I have to share this on FB.

    Just stumbled across your blog from Pinterest, somehow. Have to tell you that I already LOVE you & your AWESOME DIY tuts. Love, LOVE, L-O-V-E!!!! But, also I must tell you – on this ribbon holder thing, ya make me SICK. Well not really, but after I just bought the $20 white (rather little) ribbon holder from Michael’s ….. I’m kicking myself.
    Still glad I found your little corner of the www, look forward to seeing more!
    Your newest fan – Crystal =)
