Reuse Holiday Ribbon

5

The presents have been wrapped, the cookies have been iced, and the seasonal DIYs are done. Well..almost. Before you throw out that holiday ribbon that’s wrapping your present, give it another glance. Ribbon is like DIY platinum. It’s a great resource to DIY with! Trust us on this one. We went all the way back into the M&J Archives and dug up some of our favorite ways to use ribbon, along with updated seasonal suggestions!

Ribbon and Applique Necklace from M&J Trimming

Use a beautiful solid-colored ribbon to show off some jewels. This DIY would be easy to recreate with some of our rhinestone buttons or appliques!

Curtain Tieback from M&J Trimming

If you’re left with a lot of the same seasonal ribbon, use it to spruce up your winter decor! Gold or rich velvet ribbons would look great against a dark winter curtain. Need a little more hold for heavier curtains? Secure the curtain with a thick craft wire first, then wrap the ribbon around it and tie a beautiful bow!

Pearl and Grosgrain Necklace from M&J Trimming

Pearls add fun to the sophisticated look of pearls by making this cool ribbon and pearl necklace!

Ribbon Shirt from M&J Trimming

Reuse that ribbon to accent a basic shirt. Imagine how pretty a bright red shirt would look with this plaid ribbon as an accent.

We hope these suggestions have shown some new light on those oft-forgotten ribbons. Now that you have those ribbons safety stashed, go enjoy some cookies and watch Home Alone already! From all of us at M&J Trimming, we wish you a very merry Christmas, and happy holidays!
