I’ve been wanting to organize my ribbon forever. You know I love to make pretty bows and have quite a bit of ribbon. But, it was always in different spots.

This ribbon storage rack is super easy to assemble. We used the Allen wrench that came with the storage rack.

The directions couldn’t be any easier, and it took only about 30 minutes to put together.

You can keep the racks separated into two smaller racks, or place them on top of each like we did using the clips that came with it. A great way to save on storage space is to go vertical. It frees up valuable floor space.

    I have six of these racks (and need another…. Just call me a ribbon hoarder) and absolutely love them! Make SURE to anchor them to the wall or if setting them up back to back, anchor them to each other. Nothing is worse than having all that work topple onto your head. Ask me how I know 🙁 ugh!

    Great article!
