Recently I shared with you my creative space area. I'm really happy with it, but I didn't like the way my ribbons were stored.
Quite some time ago I saw these vintage style ribbon spools made by Beth at Home Stories AtoZ.
I loved them, so I though I'd give them a go. I bought some dowel and some mdf circles and followed Beth's instructions. I also bought some plain timber sewing thread reels for smaller pieces of ribbon.
I used a darker varnish than Beth, otherwise it's the same. I drilled holes into the ends and used rubber stamps to decorate the circles.
I changed this end of my shelf to display all my black, white, and silver ribbons.
To secure the ribbon around the reel I used normal dressmakers pins and glued a silver faceted bead to the head.
I removed the big cardboard rings from the rolls of grosgrain ribbon and stacked them on top of each other.
Made some more ribbon spools for my coloured ribbons,
and displayed them at the other end of the shelf.
Now I'm happy.
