Memorial Day Ribbon Windsock DIY

Photo 2

Memorial Day is a great way to kick off summer with a family cookout or pool party, but it is also a day to remember the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice while fighting for our country. Show off your support and American pride with this red, white & blue ribbon windsock.

1

First, you will want to gather all of your materials. You will need ribbon, a wooden or wire hoop, jute cord and scissors. I used a variety of ribbons including Red Ticking Stripe, Turquoise Herringbone Twill, Red In Stitches Grosgrain, White Grosgrain and Red Luxury Satin Ribbons.

2

After cutting your ribbons to be about 3 feet in length, you will take a ribbon and loop it around the wooden hoop. Repeat this step until the entire hoop is covered. You can stick with the patriotic red, white and blue pattern or switch it up to make your own.

3

Once all of your ribbons are attached, tie the jute cord onto 4 sides of the hoop then tie them together at the top to create a knot.

Now you can hang it from a tree or porch and watch as it beautifully flutters in the wind! Also don’t forget that it can be hung up for the 4th of July  too. Hope you all have a safe and wonderful Memorial Day!

Wrapping A Potted Plant

Plants are great go-to gifts for anyone from the new home owner to the office co-worker. Not only are plants nice to look at, but they also help promote wellness by improving air quality and can have a calming and stress-relieving effect. Instead of giving a plant in its plain old pot, dress it up with some wrapping paper and ribbon! Read on to see how we got both of these succulents party ready!

Switched At Birth

The MTV Movie & TV Awards took place in LA this past Sunday, stars from the big and small screens stepped out in glamorous outfits that looked a little familiar!

Emma

Emma Watson was giving off major Warrior Princess vibes in this Kitx dress with its metallic sequins and sheer sleeve! We think our Optic Two Tone Kraft Tote, Silver Foil Stamp Tissue, and Metallic Disc-O Tie-Ons could be Emma’s guests as she celebrates winning the first ever Best Actor In A Movie Award.

TARAJI

We loved Taraj P Henson in Hidden Figures and love her even more in this metallic number by Emilio Pucci that matches perfectly with our Glit Poly Glitter Bottle Bag and Mixed Metals Tissue. We topped it off with our Girly Grosgrain Curly to match her pop of pink lipstick!

Allison

Christmas came early this year for Girls actress, Allison Williams, who rocked this festive dress by Galia Lahav. To recreate this ensemble our Holiday Glitz Gift Bag gets paired with our Gold Glitter Dot Tissue and on top is our Gold Metallic Star Bow for some extra shine!

Looks like metallics are here to stay and we could not be more thrilled!
