I normally put a wreath on it but I just wasn’t sure if that is what I wanted this go around.
I was up in my craft room and was staring at all my spools of ribbon (I think I’m a ribbon addict) and decided I should do something with all the bright colors.
So I decided to weave them to make a plaid background.
Here’s the how-to:
Glue one end of your ribbon onto the back side of the foam board.
Next, weave each long ribbon one by one, over and under the ribbon that is already glued down to create the plaid pattern.
I chose to use all different ribbons but you could always use the same ribbon for both the width and height of the board.
Once you have all the ribbons weaved together, pull the ribbon tight that you glued in the beginning and then place a small amount of glue on the edge of the board. Then flip the board over.
This way when you flip the board, everything should stay in place.
(Trust me… I tried flipping without doing this more than once and had to start completely over!)
