With Halloween now in the back of our minds and the holiday season approaching, the crafting world is getting festive. Many consider the season of thanks as the official start of the holidays, so to commence the time in an appropriate fashion, here are four festive DIY ribbon crafts for Thanksgiving you can try.
Ribbon Trim Décor Pumpkins
Sometimes you don’t know how you’d like to decorate your pumpkins. With this quick craft, you can add a bit of flair without worrying about the mess of carving. Take your favorite ribbon and glue lengths of it along the pumpkins to dress them up for Thanksgiving.
Ribbon-and-Acorn Napkin Rings
Incorporate a bit of nature and rustic aesthetic to your table setting this year by creating ribbon-and-acorn napkin rings. Using a hot glue gun, attach the end of a ribbon length to some acorns and use them to keep rolled napkins in place. Slip a leaf into the knot and highlight your guest's initials using a gold paint pen.
DIY Dreamcatcher Wreath
This dreamy, beautiful craft can be used as a wreath for your front door. To make it, get a small hula hoop, doilies, assorted ribbon, floral adornments, and a hot glue gun.
Secure the edges of the doily with string around the hula hoop, then wrap the ribbon around the circle until it’s fully covered. Cut differing lengths of ribbon and tie them across the bottom of the round; remember to have plenty of material to fill all the open space. To finish, attach your floral pieces all around the hula hoop and allow them to dry.
Glittered Pinecone Ornaments
This festive craft is a hit with younger crowds! Roll pinecones in glue, then follow up with a coating of glitter. Shake off the excess glitter, then leave the pinecones to dry. Cut two lengths of ribbon; one should be ¾ of a yard and the second should be ¼ of a yard.
Using the glue gun, glue the longer ribbon at the pinecone's base and tie the shorter one into a bow as the finishing touch.
