Creations, Ribbon Heart

Here is a super thrifty, fast and easy, DIY that anyone can do

 

silver ribbon heart

 

 

All you need is a wire coat hanger and some ribbon or fabric strips…

Untwist the neck and use your hands or pliers to bend and shape into a heart.  You can keep the hook or straighten the wire and wind it around the top part of the heart.  Either way, once you add the ribbon it will be concealed

I found this ribbon 75% off after Christmas, but you can also use strips of fabric, an old sheet, just about anything

Cut a bunch of 12 inch ribbon pieces or fabric strips

Tie them onto the wire in 1/2 knots

Endless possibilities here… add red for a traditional Valentine look, or black,  for sexy drama… pure white would be heaven for a baby’s nursery, or make one using the bride’s colors  for a shower or wedding

I loved the plain silver, but decided to add the pink and sea green chevron ribbon

    Such a good idea, Jenna, and an actual craft I think I can do!! I especially like the idea of hanging a wreath on the back of each dining chair. Thanks for sharing this! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

    I love this, Jenna! I’m all set with the hanger from making a heart wreath out of my pink pom-pom scarf. After Valentine’s last year, I put the scarf back in my closet. I’m actually wearing the scarf today. So, the “hanger heart” is empty and waiting for this perfect wreath…and I have scraps from a lavender sheet that was ruined in the laundry, and I used a huge block for the bed skirt I published recently. I don’t normally leave links in comments, but I want to personally invite you to Meet Me on Periscope tomorrow morning. http://curtainqueencreates.com/meet-me-at-periscope-friday/ I hope to see you there!
