Knotted Ribbon Garland

Suspend this easy-to-make garland over the table at your next party. With endless color options, ribbon garlands are a fantastic way to add color and texture to the space.

This idea comes from our friend, Debi Traub of Simply Beautiful Eating, who used it as part of her Thanksgiving Pie Bar.


  • 1.5-inch-wide ribbon (in various colors and fabrics)

  • Twine

  • Scissors

  • Tape or thumbtacks (to secure to surface)


  1. Cut the ribbon into 22-inch long pieces; for every 10 inches, you will need 14 pieces of ribbon. Cut the twine to your desired length, leaving a little extra on the ends for tying. (Tip: Keep slack on the length of the twine so that it drapes nicely along the edge of your table.)

  2. Tie each ribbon, alternating colors with a slip knot or by simply tying the ribbon onto the twine with a regular knot. Repeat until all the ribbon is used.
