We don’t typically post on Saturdays, but I just couldn’t stand it. I had to share this incredible cute and easy Ribbon Star with you! I had so much fun creating and hope you will love it too! Enjoy!

Don’t you just love decorating for holidays and special events? I LOVE it!!! I love switching out my subway art in a big chunky frame on my entry table, changing table runners on my kitchen table and sometimes adding a couch accessory pillow covered in the upcoming holiday’s colors and designs. I love the way holiday decorations add a special feel to my home and the excitement it creates in my kiddos!

I also love to have big wreaths or holiday decor hanging on my front door. It livens up my plain white door just a little bit and creates a great big, warm welcome for all of our holiday company! With that being said, I wanted to try a little different door decoration this year and thought it would be way awesome to create my favorite shape out of one of my favorite crafting must haves! My favorite shape…a STAR and one of my favorite crafting must haves…RIBBON!

All you need to create this fun holiday decoration is:

4th of July Ribbon Star - The Ribbon Retreat Blog
Your favorite RED, WHITE and BLUE Ribbon
1 Fat Quarter of WHITE Fabric
1 Piece of CARD STOCK
1 Piece of WAINSCOTING (optional)
Hot Glue Gun and Glue
Needle and Thread
Scissors
Heat N Seal
Star Template
*I found one online that I liked and cut it out to the size I wanted my star to be.

Let’s Get Started:

Cut your ribbon into strips. The length will determine the size of your Ribbon Star. *NOTE: If you are using a piece of Wainscoting, the size of the Wainscoting will also determine the size of your star.
My ribbon strips were approximately 7″ long.

Lay your ribbon strips on top of your Heat N Bond in your desired order for your Star pattern.

Iron ribbon to adhere it to the Heat N Bond following manufacturer’s instructions.

Draw your star shape on the back (paper side) of the Heat N Bond.
*I recommend that you draw your star shape on the paper side of the Heat N Bond prior to ironing your ribbon to the Heat N Bond. This will make creating your star so much easier. 🙂

Cut out the star and remove the paper from the back of the ribbon. Using the manufacturer’s instructions, iron the star to your fat quarter.

This step is optional…I wanted to make sure that none of my ribbon lifted from my fabric, so I did a tight zig zag stitch around the outside of the star.

Turn your star over and iron the back to give your star a nice crisp look.

To give my ribbon star some weight and stiffness, I taped my star around my piece of card stock. You could also hot glue it as well.
*NOTE: If you are using Wainscoting to add a little extra color and flair to your star, hot glue your star to your Wainscoting.

To add your ribbon for the hanger, cut a strip to your desired length (just measure how far down you want your door hanger to hang and cut that length). Hot glue the ends to the back of your Wainscoting.

I love little bows, so of course I wanted to add even more holiday goodness and added a little basic bow to each sides of my star hanger. I used this great video tutorial, found HERE to make my bows. However, I used wider ribbon so my bow was fuller and a little bigger. I also put a knot in the center of my center ribbon before hot gluing it to the back of my bow. When you are done making your bows, hot glue them to the Wainscoting and ribbon to secure them to your door hanger.
