Easy DIY Ribbon Banner

Make a fun and simple ribbon banner for your next party. Customizable for any event, color and theme.  Or, keep up all year long as home decor.
 
Every year the company I work for has a big convention and thousands of demonstrators from all over the US and Canada come through the home office on a tour.  On my floor, my desk is the very first thing they see as they come in the door so I decided that they needed a pretty welcome.

This ribbon banner was very easy to make and much better than looking at a boring brown cabinet.
 
All you need is a length of rope or twine and lots of pieces of ribbon. 
 
Tied Ribbon Banner Tutorial
 
I cut each of my pieces of ribbon about 12 inches long, but you could really do it longer or shorter depending on how you wanted your banner to look.  I also used 13 different ribbons all of different widths and textures.
 
To tie the ribbon onto the rope tie each strand into a simple slip-knot around the rope.

Make sure you tie them all the same way so they will look more uniform.

For the letters, I used Silver Glimmer Paper and cut the letters using my Big Shot.

On the back of the letters I glued a paper clip using E6000 glue (love that stuff) so I can attach the letters.  This also makes the banner interchangeable so I could use it again for a birthday or party.

Put the letters on the banner using the paperclip to attach to a strand of ribbon and there you have it!
 
I hope they (and you) like it!
