HOW TO MAKE An Easy Ribbon Craft DIY

Pour a little bit of the brown acrylic paint onto a paper plate. Spray the paint with water using a spray bottle. You can pick these up at the dollar store. Mix the paint and continue to spray with water until you get the desired consistency. This is making the paint more of a stain.

Use the chip brush to completely paint the wood piece. Once it is painted, use a baby wipe to wipe some of the paint off. It gives it a nice finish, with some of the lighter unfinished wood showing through. This technique is a great way to add dimension.

Let dry. You can use a heat gun to speed up the drying process.

adding ribbon to wood

Add a dab of hot glue to the end of the gingham ribbon and place it on the wood piece. Continue to add the ribbon with hot glue in a zig zag fashion to the wood. It’s easier (especially on your fingers) to add the glue directly to the wood, and tap the ribbon onto it. You want the ribbon to form a carrot shape, so glue the ribbon in shorter lengths as you continue down to the end.

Make a simple shoestring bow for the top of the carrot and secure with hot glue. You can already see this sweet little ribbon craft taking shape!


Take apart the flowers and remove the greenery. You can use wire cutters if you want. Stick the greenery under the ribbon until you are happy with how full it is. You don’t even need any hot glue!
