Make a fun and simple ribbon banner for your next party. Customizable for any event, color, and theme. An easy DIY craft tutorial idea.
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.

How to Make an Easy Ribbon Banner
I used 13 different ribbons all with different widths and textures. Cut each of piece of ribbon to about 12 inches long. This gives about a 6-inch tassel. You can cut longer or shorter depending on the look you are going for.
To tie the ribbon onto the rope, tie each strand into a simple slip-knot around the rope.
Make sure to tie them all the same way so they will look more uniform.
Keep adding ribbons until you are at the length desired for your banner. Pretty easy peasy, right?
Cut the letters using a Big Shot, Alphabet dies and white glitter cardstock.
On the back of the letters, glue a paper clip using E6000 glue (I love that stuff). 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!
