Hand-Sewn Ribbon Wall
A ribbon wall is a great way to either create a backdrop for something like your cake or escort card display or to mask an ugly wall or area at your event venue. They are a little time-consuming to make when done by hand (without a machine), but well worth it.
For a 5′ wide piece of wall that hangs about 4′ high, you will need: 3 Spools of 100 yard ribbons (one of which should be a grosgrain)
4 Spools of 25 Yards of “specialty Ribbon”
20 yards of assorted “specialty” ribbons
Needle and Thread
1. Cut two pieces of Grosgrain ribbon as WIDE as you want your wall to be. Set one aside.
2. Cut your ribbons into lengths about as tall as you want your wall to be. Cut them an organize them into like piles of ribbon to make “sorting” them easier.
3. Position your ribbon behind the “base” ribbon, and tack into place with a series of simple stitches.
4. When you are done attaching your ribbons, take your fabric glue and extra length of grosgrain ribbon. Glue the extra piece over the messy stitching.
