How-To Make an Easy Hanging Ribbon Organizer

This Post May Contain Affiliate Links. Please Read my Disclosure Policy.

Even though I haven’t posted this past week, I have been getting some behind the scene steps ready for some upcoming projects…like a ribbon organizer. It takes time to gather all the supplies and to think my ideas through.  Once I have a plan, I am set to go. Today I am working on 5 projects. When one is drying, I start on another. When I get in this kind of frenzy – which is usually induced by seeing the wonders of paint – easy and inexpensive transformation.  I call these times in my life a “Decorating Marathon”.

If you have been reading my blog for sometime, you may remember this project. It was the first stage of how I created my worktable in my studioffice.

While starting to do Part 2 of my table, I needed the right equipment – I needed this…

Miter Saw

And to get it, I had to borrow it from my friend, Karen.  Going to Karen’s is always a treat, she is so creative, has the most organized sewing room, and the best ideas. I got the idea for my craft table after seeing hers  She is a professional seamstress extraordinaire and makes all kinds of decorator treatments.  She has a professional sewing workroom right in her home.   Her table is much larger than mine, but the concept to have it in the center of the room so you can move around to all sides while working and a large cutting surface is what I gleaned from her.  I ALWAYS leave her house inspired.

I thought I would share the inspiration I left with today – with you.  Look  how cleverly she  organizes her ribbon.  No drilling, sawing, or painting required.

supplies needed:

  • 2 equal lengths of chain
  • Cafe style curtain rods
  • 2- S Hooks (2 eye hooks to screw into a ceiling or wood shelf if you don’t have wire grid shelving shown in the photo)

Isn’t she clever?  Her whole house is filled with great ideas like this.

She looks after every detail inside and out.  As I was leaving – I saw this.

Painted House Address Number Signs

Is it not the most perfect, cheeriest way to display your house numbers?   It is a semi-handmade project.  She found the numbers at a local boutique.   They are just painted numbers on stretched canvas frames.   You can easily make them with the small primed artist canvas frames you can buy at craft stores. Karen screwed green stakes to the back of each frame and put them in the planter.  Now you can see why I always  drive home from her house inspired.   Thanks Karen, you are the best. XO

    1. Hi Simone-
      The top is really shiny and looks like glass, but it is black vinyl I found at a local fabric store for 1.00 a yard. I love it as it is so easy to clean up after I make big crafty messes on it .

    1. hi Kathy-

      Everytime I go into my studioffice I think I gotta get my table finished. It was starting to stress me out. I just finished a part of it and now am relaxing a bit. Thanks for the comment.
