Dancing Ribbon Rings

Dancing Ribbon Rings - The Ribbon Retreat BlogHey there Ribbon Retreat readers. It’s Michaela from Covered in Mod Podge back again. Today I’m sharing a 30 minute (or less) craft tutorial for Dancing Ribbon Rings.

My two and a half year old daughter has gotten really into singing and dancing lately. Her songs go a little something like this, “sing….song….sing a sing sing…” I can’t handle the cuteness and hilariousness of it all. She also busts a move to nearly any song that comes on.

In an attempt to build up her opportunities for imaginative play, I’ve been looking for toys that foster creative play {and don’t have batteries!}. These Dancing Ribbon Rings fit that bill. They are great for promoting imaginative play, movement, and altogether silliness {my favorite!}.

Dancing Ribbon Rings - The Ribbon Retreat BlogThese great little Dancing Ribbon Rings couldn’t be easier to make. You’ll need:

Plastic or Wooden Rings {mine are shower curtain rings for $1.19 at Target}
Variety of Ribbon {I used Grosgrain 5/8″ in Ocean Blue, 1/4″ in White, and 3/8″ in Tutti Frutti, and TRR Chevron 7/8″ in Apple Green and Pink)
Hot Glue/glue Gun
Something to seal the ribbons {lighter, fray check, heat tool}

Dancing Ribbon Rings - The Ribbon Retreat BlogStart out by wrapping your rings in ribbon. Secure the ribbon at the beginning and end using a dab of hot glue.

Dancing Ribbon Rings - The Ribbon Retreat BlogThen, cut three different colors of ribbon per ribbon ring. You’ll want them to be between 2 and 3 feet long. I cut a notch for a nice extra touch. You’ll want to use your sealing method of choice on each ribbon end to prevent fraying.

Dancing Ribbon Rings - The Ribbon Retreat BlogKnot your ribbon at the middle to your ring. I think three ribbons of various lengths and thicknesses, per ring, is a good look. Feel free to add more or less!

Dancing Ribbon Rings - The Ribbon Retreat BlogHand them off to your tiny dancer and watch the crazy moves! It’s that simple!

Dancing Ribbon Rings - The Ribbon Retreat BlogThese can be made in a huge variety of colors and sizes for a whole host of needs. I’m already thinking they would make great party favors!

Your little ones are sure to dance the night away with these adorable Dancing Ribbon Rings. What a great idea…for a great price…and tons of dancing fun! I love budget friendly and FAST projects that are a hit for those you create them for!

    Your Dancing Ribbon Rings are too adorable, Michaela! Using shower curtain rings for the “handles” is ingenious! I found an unused set in my linen closet just the other day.: ) And your little girl is adorable… she is exuding sheer joy as she prances around.♥ My two-and-a-half granddaughter and she would get along famously; little M also breaks into dance moves whenever she hears music and sings made-up songs about nothing–and everything–in particular!

    I can’t wait to make a few of these for her and her almost-five-year-old big sister! Thanks again for sharing.: ) xoxo

    Add more fun by stringing some jingle bells on the rings too!
