Ribbon Macrame Luminary Tutorial

Stop for one second and think about all of the different ways you have seen ribbon be used. Are you still thinking? I think we could think and think and think for hours about all of the different projects we have seen ribbon used. From bows to bags to clothing and outdoor crafts, ribbon is EVERYWHERE, and I love it! Today, my super sweet friend Janica is sharing a new and very clever way to use our fabulous grosgrain ribbon! She is genius and this fun project is brilliant! Enjoy!

 Hi, it’s JaniJo here to share a fantastic summer craft!
I have memories of my grandma’s ornate macrame art via a plant holder in my grandma’s home;
it wasn’t necessarily ‘pretty’ with its’ orange and brown matted tufts.
Yikes.
However, this tutorial offers a modern twist on macrame using my favorite supply….RIBBON!!!

Stabilize the knot using a clip board, a chair leg, or even your big toe!

I trimmed and heat sealed the ends of each ribbon strand.
In all my crafting history, I would say that this SIMPLE project has the biggest WOW factor!

The fancy luminaries look so striking when hung in a group, like this.

They would be a great decoration for a backyard BBQ or bridal shower!
