Create Your Own Ribbon Holder

contest winner icon

Create your own ribbon holder for less than $2 using leftover materials: use an old wire basket (it is OK if some of the slats are broken) and several 12 inch long dowel rods (or pant hanger cardboard) cut to length.

Slide the dowel through one end of the basket, place the ribbon spools and then thread the other end through the basket. VOILA! A ribbon holder for less than $2. The craft stores sell these for $20 or more. Now you have more money to purchase those adorable patterned ribbons.

This is one great idea. I have already passed it onto several friends. It keeps everything together and you know what you have and what you don't.

This is a really good tip, and so thrifty, and you do know that I'm going to spend that money on ribbon, don't you? Yeah.
