After I posted my Craft Area Makeover, I had email after email asking me to show how I hung my ribbon on the cork board. This is so easy, you won’t believe it! It was one of those temporary ideas that worked out surprisingly well so I decided I didn’t need to change after all!
Here is what I did.
I put all my ribbon onto dowels. On each side of the dowel I got a piece of ribbon and folded it over, making a loop just big enough for the dowel to fit through. Then I glued the ribbon with hot glue- yep, hot glue- to hold it.
Again, I made this to be temporary as I never thought this would last or that the hot glue would hold the ribbon together once it had to hold the weight of the ribbon, but the original hanging dowel I made nearly 2 years ago is still holding strong!!! You could also just make a giant loop and not glue anything too if you are still worried about it. Maybe I used some great ribbon or something that melted together with the glue? I don’t know, take it for what its worth, I am just glad its working!!!
Then I just tacked up each side with 2 thumb tacks!
Martha Stewart has some ideas if you want to copy her instead:
I hope these ideas help any of you fellow ribbon lovers like myself!!!
