Want to craft with printed ribbon? Start with striped ribbon, a timeless pattern that looks great in almost any context.
Striped ribbon is a striking, versatile choice for virtually any crafting project! With a wide variety of colors, textures, and stripe patterns to choose from, there’s a striped ribbon out there to match your every DIY need. Start crafting today with one of these 5 fun projects:
Striped Ribbon Blouse
With some striped ribbon and a sewing machine, you can easily transform a white blouse into a statement piece. For a trendy, bold look, sew vertical lengths of lacy scalloped ribbon to the back of the shirt. If you prefer a subtler look, line the cuffs or collar of your blouse with blue and white ribbon instead.
Mardi Gras Decorations
Holidays are a great time to use striped ribbon, and Mardi Gras is no exception. Pick a shiny ribbon in the traditional purple, gold, and green color palette and use it to make wreaths, streamers, masks, or crowns. You can even wrap some ribbon around your Mardi Gras King Cake!
Striped ribbon curtains look great in a child’s bedroom or a college dorm room! Start with gauzy white curtains and the translucent striped ribbon of your choice, then carefully use a sewing machine or iron-on hem tape to attach lengths of ribbon down the curtain. You can also create a grid pattern with the ribbon for more visual interest.
“Candy Cane” Wreath
You’ve probably seen several Christmas wreaths embellished with red and white striped ribbon, but what about wreaths made of ribbon? For the full candy cane effect, use diagonally striped red and white ribbon. Don’t be afraid to play around with shapes — the traditional circle wreath is always a good bet, but you could also go with a candy cane shape if you’re feeling ambitious.
Fashion-Forward Sun Hat
A plain straw hat with striped ribbon trim is a stylish way to incorporate striped ribbon into your wardrobe for summer. You could go for the derby look with wide striped ribbon, but we love this Madras ribbon for something slightly different. Run the ribbon around the brim of the hat, attaching it with a glue gun as you go. Stop there if you want to, or make a bow out of the same ribbon and glue it to the back of the hat.
