Yesterday I made an embroidery hoop ribbon boho hanging. All you need to make this project is an embroidery hoop and various ribbon.
When I was finished with my DIY project, I hung it in the dining space because there was already a hook in the ceiling.
I gathered the various colored ribbons and put them in a wicker basket. Then I sat in my recliner to work on it.
I measured my ribbon and then began adding each one to the embroidery hoop.
My Boho Project Color Palette:
I decided on a color palette of white, beige, gold, brown, black and green. To me these colors symbolize the earth and nature.
I used a simple loop to tie the strands of ribbon onto the hoop that I found online. It is the same one I used for my green boho hanging last week. Then I tied a knot to keep it from slipping out of the loop.
When you’re using shiny ribbon, the first loop does not want to hold. So I had to tie a knot after I made the loop to hold it in place.
The Basic Loop Knot I Used:
I found a photo of the basic loop knot that I used.
If I make another one boho hanging, next time I might use more colorful ribbon. I just used the ribbon I had on hand. And I already had an embroidery hoop. So this project didn’t cost me a cent.
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 project.
Once I had hung it up from the ceiling, I stood below with scissors and gave it a more layered look by snipping some of the ribbon.
These are fun boho DIYs. I’ve got lots of things in my craft cabinet I can use on future DIY boho projects. I know I have feathers and all kinds of beads.
Ivy Finds The Boho Hanging:
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 so I was able to finish it.
Looks like I might have to move it up a bit higher before she manages to pull it down.
