Ribbon is a timeless essential for decorating gifts for our friends and family, even if we didn’t wrap it.

Throwing ribbon on a wine bottle, candle or other hard to wrap gifts shows our effort, even if we have zero present wrapping skills. However, there are many other ways to incorporate a little bit of ribbon into your everyday home décor.

ribbonNapkin rings

This is a simple way to add ribbon into your tablescape without adding too much bulk. Tying a simple knot around your napkins can keep them organized while adding a contrasting texture to your tablescape. This is also perfect if you need napkin rings in a pinch, and they are no where to be found.

Dressing up vases

Tying a ribbon around any kind of vase adds texture to your floral arrangements, especially if you’re giving them to a friend or family member. For a fun craft, you can cover the bottom portion of the vase to create a texture with the stacked ribbon all the way up your vase.

Sprucing up a basket

Baskets are perfect for gifts, holding blankets or catchalls in your home. You can weave ribbon throughout your basket around the top for a pattern that spruces up an old basket into something new. You can also tie a big bow around the handle if you’re giving the basket away as a gift.

Wreathsribbon

Wreaths, especially basic ones, are just asking for a cute DIY addition. You can add ribbon to your wreath in a variety of ways that can truly make them something unique and perfect for your home. You can also use different colors and textures to dress up your wreath throughout the seasons.

Entryways

If you have a porch with a railing, this is the perfect place to add a touch of ribbon into your home décor. You can add a big bow, or spiral the ribbon up your railing for parties to add a tiny touch of fun before your guests even arrive.

Table runner

If you have an island, ribbon is perfect for a table runner. If you’re entertaining and have a lot of snacks laid out, you can swirl your ribbon around the plates to create texture within that open space on your table.

Ribbon is a simple and inexpensive way to spice up the décor throughout your home, as well as all of your upcoming parties. It creates so much texture and color without a lot of effort from you. It’s perfect, and something you will usually have, even if it’s at the last minute.
