Hi everyone! I’m Michele from The Scrap Shoppe, and I have a fun, simple, and inexpensive home decor project for you today. These ribbon frames are so easy to make and can be customized to the colors you have in your home. Make a trio in a variety of sizes for an instant accent to any wall!

Any blogger will tell you that a good white board (or 2 or 3!) is a must when it comes to taking a good photo. They are great for backdrops and reflecting light. Unfortunately, over time, they start to get dingy and scratched and scuffed. They’ll still work okay for reflecting light but not so much as a backdrop. About that time I start trying to find other uses for them… like these picture frames!

If you don’t have any white boards (they are fairly inexpensive) you can always use good old cardboard. Draw circle frame templates on your surface using anything round you can find to trace. I used anything from a pan lid to an embroidery hoop.

Use a box cutter to carefully cut out the frames. Then select the ribbon you want to use.

Wrap the frame with the ribbon creating whatever pattern you choose, overlapping the ribbon as you go. I wanted to be sure to include the jacquard on each of the frames and at least 2 of the solid satins. Use a liquid adhesive to adhere the ends of the ribbons to the back of the frame.

Repeat with all of the frames creating various patterns with the ribbons.

Fill the Ribbon Frames by taping photos and/or other items from the back of the frame. I created a monogram frame with a piece of scrapbook paper and an “m” sticker. The phrase in the biggest frame is actually a piece of scrapbook paper I trimmed down to size. And, finally, I placed a family photo in the middle-sized frame. You can arrange these on the wall and hang with 3M Command Fasteners.

Thank you! Thank you! I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to start wrapping some ribbon around frames and displaying my pictures in STYLE!! And while all your supplies are out, create some of these other fun crafts — brought to you by the talented Michelle from The Scrap Shoppe 🙂
