Here’s a large and fluffy bow to inspire you to make your own Christmas decor bows! We used around five yards of two ribbons to make a 12″ wide bow with eight loops of each ribbon. At this size, the bow could be used by itself, as a tree topper or a dominant element on a 24″ wreath. We have lots of suggestions for ribbon combinations so scroll through the pictures for ribbons to match your color scheme. See the links below each picture or visit the entire shop!
We choose a brightly glittering red and lime green diamond patterned along with a traditional Christmas red velvet. To make it easy to tighten and hold the center firmly, we used a chenille pipe cleaner to tie the bow, The pipe cleaner also allows you to freely adjust and rearrange the bow if desired. Our shop has Christmas velvets in over 20 colors, width and styles so you’re not limited to red!
Surprise, surprise, Navy Blue takes three of the top five spots on the favorite ribbons list for May! Somehow, Iced Plum “Charisma” snuck in there and the large white jingle bell held its own but Navy was the big winner for views in the Cottage Crafts Etsy shop.
Of course, Navy is popular for Americana and patriotic decor, but it’s also trending high with brides, with lace adorning cakes and satin used as a sash and floral wrap. We predict it will remain at the top through June, especially for 4th of July wreaths, floral arrangements and picnic decorations. Speaking of July 4th, keep an eye out for a post with all our new patriotic ribbons coming soon!
“Charisma” ribbons are gorgeous two tone taffetas that shimmer from one color to the other, creating tones which show on both sides of the ribbon. Iced Plum, 1 1/2″ wide, is a mid-range purple that flashes a soft mossy green – gold, depending on the angle of the light hitting it.
Also versatile, our super-large white jingle bell can fit into almost any color scheme. Pair it up with our red bell for July 4th — oh, you want to add a navy bell to that? Only takes a quick pass with navy spray paint over the white! Or a few brush strokes of navy craft paint for stripes!
Back on top! Wired navy blue burlap ribbon, 2 1/2″ wide, is available in a 3 yard length, a 10 yard roll and as a 50 yard lot. Don’t forget coordinating 5/8″ cut-edge navy burlap, navy burlap string and heavier weight navy burlap cord! Other excellent navy blue choices include double sided satin, faux dupioni silk Anisha and semi-sheer Kempton.
Spring brings thoughts of warm weather, being outside and hearing birds sing again. Maybe that’s why two of top weekly ribbons, “Bug’s Life” and “Peacock Feather” caught our visitors’ eyes. Let’s see what other items made up the rest of this week’s most viewed and liked!
It may have been March Madness for basketball, but our football lace ribbon print was a favorite. The 2 1/2″ width in a three yard length won the race this week, but also playing hard were the ten yard roll and the 1 1/2″ width in 3 yards and a ten yard roll.
Yes, it’s spring and all those critters are coming out of their winter hiding places. Dragonflies are joined by their friends, lady bugs, bees and beetles.
Ombre ribbons transition between colors, making them the go-to choice of ribbon flower crafters. The soft blending of colors in “Teal” evoke the ocean and coordinate nicely with “Peacock Feather”, Dark Teal “Anisha” and “Gelato” in Celadon. Teal ombre comes on 3 yard roll as well a cost effective 25 yard roll.
At the top of the weekly top five ribbons, this week: Gorgeous satin peacock feather print, 1 1/2″ wide, made in the US by Offray Lion Ribbon.
