Make a Spring Ornament with Ribbon Scraps

Ornaments aren’t just for Christmas! A beautiful bauble hung in the window can bring a smile to any face. I realized how much I love all of the aqua shaded ribbons, and thought they would make a gorgeous decoration. This is a great way to use little bits of ribbon left over other projects.

Remove the cap from the glass ornament. Gather ribbons for your project and cut lengths 4-6” long. Take a length of ribbon and wind around the dowel (make sure it is small enough to fit into the opening of the ornament).

Place the wound ribbon into the ornament and release – this will create pleasing swirls or ribbon, rather than trying to stuff the ribbon into the vessel.

Finish filling the ornament with ribbons. Replace the cap. Tie a loop of ribbon to hang the ornament. Decorate with bought or handmade flowers.
