This is the wall hanging we used for our Valentine's Day Inspired Party. Costco has been a great source of floral/fabric ribbon- selling spools of 50 yards for only $7.99 We found this red ribbon with hearts from their spring ribbon display last week. I knew we could create some sort of wall hanging and decoration and still have 45 yards of ribbon to use for the next 5-10 years.
Supplies: wire ribbon, scissors, hot glue gun, glue sticks, cardboard, felt.
Cut 14" and 12" strips. The longer strips will go on the first (outer) layer and third layer. The smaller strips will fill in for the second & forth layers.
Cut a round piece of cardboard for the base. I placed a large dinner plate on top of the cardboard and drew around the plate with a pen and then cut out the circle.
Glue the ribbon loops around the outer edge of the circle base:
Move two inches down to glue another circle of the 14" strip:
See the cardboard space between the rows? Fill in with the shorter ribbon loops.
Add another circle of looped ribbons:
here. The heart garland was made with hearts cut out of felt on twine draped on the dresser handles. The platters are an assortment from Ikea, PierOne, Costco, Target. The set of 3 black lanterns were purchased from OneKingsLane (who provides the most outstanding customer service).
