DIY Ribbon Hoop Garland with a Video Tutorial

I’m so excited to bring you this DIY Ribbon Hoop Garland today.  It’s been a long time in the making, and I’m not even sure why.

I wanted to feature it in this post about decorating your party chairs, but it just didn’t happen.   But, these would be adorable on the back of any chair at your next party.

Do you ever put something off for a long time, then when you do it, it only takes you like 5 minutes to complete it?  Yep, that’s what happened with this ribbon garland.

Once I started doing it, it was so quick.  I’m not sure why I put it off for so long.  It was so quick I even had time to do a video tutorial, edit it, and figure out how to get it to post here.

There’s no excuse to not be sure how to do this because the video walks you through every quick step.

And there’s no excuse for me not to just get things done when I want to because they probably aren’t going to take as long as you think they will.  Maybe not procrastinating should be my New Year’s resolution?

So, these DIY ribbon hoops are super easy to make yourself and they make a huge impact.

I love the versatility of them.  You can hang them in a dessert backdrop, from the ceiling, or use them as a wreath for the entrance to your party.

If you want, you don’t even have to use them for a party at all.  Try them as home decor.  How sweet would they be in a nursery or playroom?

I love the softness of the satin and grosgrain ribbon, the vibrant colors, but mostly how easy they are to do.

Hoop decor is all the rage right now, especially for parties.  Decorating hoops with flowers, balloons, or fabric.

These would be so fun to incorporate into upcoming Thanksgiving or Christmas decor don’t you think?

I love that I don’t need any special tools for this DIY.  No glue gun or sewing involved.  Just your fingers and about 5 minutes of time!

Here are the steps you’ll need to take to make this yourself.

  1. First, cut your ribbon into about 2-3 feet stripsdiy ribbon garland, embroidery hoop diy, easy ribbon party decor, yellow party decor, ribbon hoop garland tutorial
  2. To loop your ribbon over the hoop, first join the two free ends together and find the middle of the ribbon.
  3. Next, hold the middle of the ribbon into a loop over the hoop.diy ribbon garland, embroidery hoop diy, easy ribbon party decor, yellow party decor, ribbon hoop garland tutorial
  4. Then pull the free ends through the ribbon loop over the hoop.diy ribbon garland, embroidery hoop diy, easy ribbon party decor, yellow party decor, ribbon hoop garland tutorial
  5. Wiggle the hanging ends of the ribbon to tighten the knot that you created.
  6. Finally, add ribbons all around the hoop using the method above until you’ve reached your desired look.  More ribbons is a fuller look.diy ribbon garland, embroidery hoop diy, easy ribbon party decor, yellow party decor, ribbon hoop garland tutorial

I hung my ribbon hoop garlands over my bar area.  They make a cute, and easy decoration for that area.

These would be quick and inexpensive decor to incorporate into your party in areas that aren’t your main focal point.  Just use colors that coordinate with your party.

And clear 3M hooks would work perfectly to hang them temporarily where you’d like them.  I only had white ones on hand.

All together I only spent about $11 on this DIY.  I already had the embroidery hoops so all I purchased was the ribbon.  I bought four rolls at about $2-3 each.

I highly recommend watching this quick video tutorial.  Not because I am great on camera, haha, but because the process makes a little more sense when you see it being done.

And now for me to try and remember how to speak 🙂

Is this a DIY you could see yourself tackling?  Where would you use it?  A party, home decor, or somewhere else?
