Hey all, my name is Kellee and I help out the gals over at U Create.  Today I get to share my Ribbon Christmas Card Display Frame with you.  I had so much fun making it and I am excited to share the tutorial with you.  It’s simple, inexpensive and totally useful…not to mention super cute!

DIY Ribbon Christmas Card Display Frame - The Ribbon Retreat BlogFor this craft you will need:

-6 yards of coordinating Christmas Ribbon (Make it easy on yourself and buy a Seasonal Ribbon Mix)

-1/2 yard of Red Glimmer Tulle for accent

-Large Frame

-Red glossy spray paint

-Heavy-duty Stapler and staples

-decorative clothespins

Step #1: Take a large frame and spray paint it glossy red…or whatever amazing Christmas color you want.

Step #5: Lay the frame back down on your arranged ribbons, laying on the ground, and mark where the next ribbon goes, pull tight and staple to the back. As I was stapling the ribbons to the back, I would weave them in front of and behind the ribbons I had already placed on the frame. This is just a matter of taste.  No plan to my madness, just what I thought looked good.

I LOVE how everything turned out and am so excited to get Christmas cards so I can hang them on it.
