My Ribbon Chain Garland




Guess what, girlfriends? I have discovered that I am bit of an inventor. :>



Although I didn't invent paper chains, I never saw a ribbon chain until I made one! This ribbon is so sweet, pink and gently sparkling!




I've been using different types of trims and ribbons to see what works best.

Do you like?


I think they're sort of Country/Cottage/Kitschy/Chic and I'm making more of them!

(I also like to invent terms and titles!) Ha-ha!

This ribbon chain garland is hanging against the window in my craft room. It's keeping my baby fairy lantern company.

I think they would look cute in a little girl's room- sort of like my craft room is? :> I can see them in a cute- but not ornate chandelier, too.


I'll soon be making these available in my Etsy shop.
Not really! :>

I don't have an Etsy shop but I thought it would be fun to say that! Ha-ha!

Thanks for coming by, Girls!

I heart you all! :>

You are crazy!! I think it would be fun to have a shop to sell things; but thats too much for me:) How do you get that ribbon to look so "stiff", I guess is the word?? Its very cute:) Well, Gavin went back to school today and Gage is at grandma's; so I need to workout, take down Christmas decor, sweep and mop all floors... oh, and shower!! Think I can do all of that in 5 hours??? Hope so:) TTYL!

Morning, Noelle! You're the first visitor of the day again! Congratulations! :>

I used "stiff' ribbon for the garland.

I think you should just take down the Christmas decor and shower. ;> floors can always wait!

Holly, you cracked me up! I did like hearing you say that:) Your ribbon garland was very pretty. Soft, romantic, just the right touch. I love how creative you are. Who knows? you may have an etsy shop one of these days! Twyla

I just got caught-up on reading your blog. I love ribbon, so the garland is an instant hit with me! I enjoyed viewing your vintage cards, book and plate! You have some neat stuff. Take care~

Holly said...

That is so pretty and clever Holly! Great idea! My boys made paper ones for Christmas. They are fun to make!

Those are cute! What a great idea.

Holly said...

Hi, Amy! So good to see you! I made paper chains when i was a little girl but "ribbon chains" are for bigger girls. :>

Holly said...

I'm so glad you came to visit me Penny! I've wanted to meet you for some time. I love your name. It's such a sweet and happy sounding one. Hope you come again!

Queenie~ said...

Girl, you are good and I think these are a wonderful idea and I've never seen them before either. How cute these would be on a Christmas tree!
xoxo,
Queenie

Holly said...

Thanks, Queenie! I think they would be especially sweet on a little white tree!
