In my personal opinion, May Arts elastic string has got to be the most useful ribbon in the whole store.  I love that they come in 5 awesome colors including gold and silver.  And can be used in many practical ways from household to fashion.  Here are just some examples of why you MUST have a spool or two in your stash.

Crocheted Elastic String Headband
Crochet it to make a cute headband.

DIY Friendship Bracelet
Add beads for quick bracelets.

Elastic String Butterfly Fastener
Add them to a button and knot for a cute way to keep things together.

Quick and Easy Napkin Holder
Make your own napkin holder by adding a fastening and wrapping it around to close.  Click here for more details!

Today I’m excited to share with you two ways to use this fun metallic bow ribbon. It’s wired, but you can play with it in a couple of ways to get different looks.

Card - Make a Ribbon Wreath

My first project is a card. I created a small wreath for the card front and I”m sharing in the video how I made the background and the wreath.  You’ll just love how easy it was. My second project is a fun crown.

Make a Fall Themed Crown

I love the idea of floral crowns and my daughter loves to dress up. I made this super easy Fall crown for her. She was excited to see it. I chose the three remaining colors to make this. It is also shown in the video. Enjoy watching and don’t forget to let us know what you think of the new releases. There is so much awesome stuff here. 


Rhea Weigand

The first thing that came to my mind when I received my vintage inspired cotton ribbon was altered bottles.  I happen to collect vintage bottles and jars so I was “way” excited to alter one of them and recycle a pickle jar.  Click here for more details on these projects!
