Something nifty today:
Curly grosgrain ribbon!
So cute!

 

I happen to fancy doing this today. Besides making darling wreaths with them, curled grosgrain ribbon is ideal to embellish a bunch of creative projects I’m working on. You need ribbon too?


How to Curl Grosgrain Ribbon

The traditional recipe of baking curls has been around for ages:

  • wrap ribbon around long pin & secure,
  • soak in water,
  • sprits starch
  • bake in oven for 1/3 hr. 
  • and VOILA: a mountain of curly grosgrain ribbons.

  1. totally cute and different from all the others I’ve seen.

  2. You did a very nice job on the wreath. I am not into that kind of thing anymore, but certainly enjoy seeing what others do.

  3. Oh I love, love, love that wreath. Never seen one done with grossgrain ribbon.
