Up-cycled Ribbon Holder

I had this project going when I made my daughter's ribbon holder (go here to see Jean's).  I got the idea from Jen, at Scissors and Spatulas.  I just love her style.  Anyway, here is what I came up with. 

Here is Jen's.  I like that hers is a little more compact (go here to see more of Jen's ribbon holder and stay awhile to be inspired).

This is what I started with.  It was a plate holder I found at Goodwill.

I added two more dowels with ordinary cup hooks.  The dowels just slide right through.

I think I will add more hooks and a dowel to the middle.

I also used little black rubber O rings thingies to hold the dowels in place (you can see one on the first dowel).

Filled it up with ribbon and now I am working on my laundry/craft room so I can hang this bad boy up.


How do you store your ribbon?

  4. How do I store my ribbon? You really want to know? They are all thrown in a shopping bag and in a closet. Now I feel really messy and unorganized.

  5. Great idea! I'm creating a craft room and always looking for ideas.

  6. I definitely need to find something like this. My ribbon is stuffed into a drawer of my craft cart and I have to go digging to find the one I want. And you thought I was organized. Look at you! Thanks so much for sharing at Whimsy Wednesdays.

  7. Awesome! Mine is all in a plastic tote-not at all as cute as yours.
