Easy Christmas Ribbon Bunting

This Easy Christmas Ribbon Bunting  is well…easy! With Christmas getting closer who has time for those long, time consuming decor projects ? Not me.

This is a fun , easy and quick project I made using ribbons for a guest post at The Ribbon Retreat. This bunting would be cute hanging in a doorway or make a longer one to as garland around your Christmas tree!

I have to say it took awhile to figure out what to make as The Ribbon Retreat has so many pretty ribbons to choose from. I was like a kid in a candy store! And this garland looked so perfect with the upcycled Christmas dress I made for Gigi last week.

ribbonsI used this green and white striped  1 1/2 inch wide grosgrain ribbon, this green  2 1/4 inch grosgrain ribbon , both from Ribbon Retreat, and some red 2 inch ribbon. I cut each ribbon 5 inches long.ribbons2

Then I folded each ribbon in half and pressed them to make a fold in the center. Once pressed shut , I cut little V’s in the ribbons

Then I folded each ribbon over some baker’s twine and used the sewing machine to zig zag stitch over the ribbons at the top to secure them to the baker’s twine so they wouldn’t shift around. That’s it!
