Hi, I’m Justine from the Sew Country Chick blog, and I’m happy to be sharing my Easy Christmas Ribbon Bunting tutorial with Ribbon Retreat readers! This is a fun, easy and quick project I made using ribbons from the Ribbon Retreat. This bunting would be cute hanging in a doorway or make a longer one to use as a 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!
My little one loves it as you can see! She helped me with the ribbon sorting.
I made her that dress from an old ladies nightshirt!
Here is how to make the bunting:
I then 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. This will keep them from shifting around. That’s it!
Thanks so much to Michelle and everyone at The Ribbon Retreat for having me take part in this fun Christmas series! Readers, stop by sometime at Sew Country Chick to see lots of sewing tutorials and crafty projects!

I am a huge fan of fun, festive, and FAST projects just like this ribbon bunting! I also give two thumbs up for projects that can be used for multiple holidays and special events. Can you imagine how adorable this bunting would be with bright pink chevron, fashion or polka dot ribbon for a little girl’s birthday party? Or how about some awesome camouflage, planes or sports ribbon for a boy’s party after that big, final, game of the season? The Ribbon Retreat has a great selection of ribbon that is perfect for any event, holiday or occasion you can think of.
What is your favorite ribbon?
Happy Creating & Happy Ribbon!
