Ribbon...ribbon...

craft challenge

You would almost think I only have this blog to make postings about Heidi's Craft Challenges! I really do intend on blogging more! Anyway...


Heidi's monthly craft challenges do inspire me to be crafty. This month's challenge was ribbon. I LOVE ribbon and use it often on my scrapbook pages and in Grace's hair. However, I am going to show you some simple ways I have used it in the girl's bedroom decor. AND you get a little sneak peak at the changes going on in Jilian's room. I'm almost done and am excited to share! Until then, here are my crafts...


Grace's curtain in her room. I made a simple white linen curtain and then tied it up with wide pink satin ribbon.

Jilian's new curtain in her room. Similar to Grace's however I made the curtain from cotton fabric with little pink and brown birdies and used wide brown satin ribbon. I was low on ribbon so I didn't make bows, even though I didn't plan it that way, I like how it came out.

Lastly, for Jilian's room I made this sweet little bird (birdies are my new phase!)which I will be hanging over her crib, with thin brown satin ribbon. I've made two so far and will be making a few others.

Please excuse the poor photo quality. My camera is at the camera doctor, I had to use Grace's to take these pictures! :-)

Sarah, These are great! I am going to have to think of using ribbon for curtains in Mikayla's room. I love how it dresses it up. Can't wait to see the new changes in Jilian's room!

By the way...I linked your post already. ;)

The curtains came out great!! Thanks for the idea-we're in the process of doing over all the bedrooms because we've done some moving around and I may use this idea!

Those curtains are adorable! I have been looking for a cute way to make my daughter's room look a bit more girly w/o a huge cost. This could be just the thing!

This would be perfect for the bay window in Avery's playhouse--quick and inexpensive!
