Materials

  • Ribbon, rickrack, or any other trim
  • Hot-glue gun

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Cut one-yard lengths of ribbon, rickrack, or any other trim. Loop each piece, overlap the ends by 1/8 inch, and use a hot-glue gun to glue them together. Group as many loops as you like, mixing textures, colors, and patterns.

  2. Step 2

    Finish by covering the glued joints: Cut a piece of ribbon long enough to cover the grouping, overlapping by 1/2 inch. Cover the underside of this ribbon with glue, then wrap it around the groupings, fold the end under 1/4 inch, and glue it down. Let dry.
