Framed Ribbon Flag

I am so very excited for today’s adorably festive project! I mean seriously…how cute is this Ribbon Flag that the amazingly talented Cherie is sharing with us? I absolutely love how she incorporated lace and ribbon to create this patriotic flag that screams freedom and 4th of July celebrations! Not only is this project adorable and so very easy to make…it could be a scrap buster project for all of those short random pieces of ribbon and lace you have lying around in your craft room…and who doesn’t love an awesome scrap buster project? Grab your lace and your ribbon and let’s get craftin’! Enjoy!

Crafting for the Fourth of July makes me HAPPY, plain and simple! I love America, I love summer time, and July 4th is also my birthday! This is a fun easy craft and with supplies from The Ribbon Retreat it is sure to turn out awesome!

Supplies needed:

  • Frame (possibly some spray paint)
  • Ribbon, Ric Rac and Lace
  • Hot Glue

Patriotic Ribbon and Trim

I had a black frame laying around, and I spray painted it white for this project. You could buy a white frame, I think a wooden frame would even look cute.

One thing I love about this project is that you don’t have to measure your ribbon! As shown in the picture above I just cut ribbon a little longer than the frame and laid the ribbon out how I wanted it to be.

I started with the blue ribbon. As you can see it needs to be glued to the bottom left corner so it will be in the right spot in the front. Also make sure to glue the ribbon right side down.

After you glue all the blue ribbons you want to use, fold the edges over and glue them down. I also glued each ribbon together.

This is how it looks in the front.

Now start gluing your stripes to the frame and the blue ribbon.

Continue gluing. 🙂

When you get down to the stripe that will be right below the blue ribbon make sure that the folds of your blue ribbon are in the back. Then glue them down to make it secure.

I was really glad that it worked out to have red stripes on the top and bottom just like the real American Flag.

Although this cute Framed Ribbon Flag would be cute on a mantle I decided to hang it on a closet door. This is a cool way to hang it without a visible hook on the front of the door.
I hope you enjoy this easy craft and that it brings some American pride into your home!

Thank you so much Cherie for sharing this fun and festive project today! I am in love with this flag and how amazing it would look on a side table, mantle or even hanging on a wall or front door! The lace and ribbon combination is a true winner, and I can’t wait to make one just like yours to add to my 4th of July decor!

I can’t believe the 4th of July is so close. I am so excited for all of the fabulous festivities that come along with the 4th of July but mostly to celebrate this great, great nation! Here are a few more festive and patriotic projects to help you celebrate the amazing USA!

    Aww, what a sweet flag, Cherie! With it’s feminine touches, I think it would be perfect for a girl’s room… it’s never too early to start instilling pride in our country! By substituting “plain” navy (or royal!) and white polka dot ribbon, and white ribbon for the lace, it would be perfect for a boy’s room–maybe even paint the frame in red or blue!

    Thank you for sharing this fun and patriotic project! xoxo
