I took several hours yesterday to make another boho craft project. All you need to make this one is an embroidery hoop and various ribbon.
I hung it here for now because there was already a hook in the ceiling.
It was fun to make. I just gathered the various colored ribbons I wanted and put them in a wicker basket and went to my recliner to work.
I sat here with Charlie and measured out my ribbon and then began adding them to the embroidery hoop.
I decided on a color palette of white, beige, gold, brown, black and green. To me these colors symbolized the earth and nature.
I used a simple loop I found online that I also used for my green boho hanging last week, then tied a knot in it to keep it from slipping out. When you’re using slick ribbon, the first loop does not want to hold, so I had tie a knot after the loop to hold it in place.
I found a photo of the basic loop I used. Then I just tied a knot at the base of the loop.
Next time I might use more colorful ribbon. I just used the ribbon I had on hand. I already had an embroidery hoop. So the project cost me nothing.
I used three pieces of jute to hang it with. You could also use ribbon to hang it, but I was running low on ribbon by the time I finished this.
Once I was finished and hung it, I stood below it with scissors and gave it a more layered look by snipping some of the ribbon.
These are fun DIYs. I’ve got lots of things in my craft cabinet I can use on future boho DIY projects. Feathers and keys and all kinds of beads. Really the sky is the limit to what you can make.
Uh-oh. Ivy has found it. She had a big time pulling at my ribbon while I was working on this. But finally she got tired and took a nap and I was able to finish it.
Looks like I might have to move it up a bit higher.
It is Charlie Ross’s birthday. He is 13 years old today. Thirteen years of having my sweet boy in my life. He is so cherished and loved.
