Happy Canada Day…well, almost! Do you do much decorating for the holiday? Recently, I was sent a box of ribbons from The Ribbon Retreat – yummy, gorgeous ribbons – and was asked to do some patriotic crafting with it. Here’s how I got creative with ribbon for Canada Day:
I used some of the ribbons simply to wrap around some mason jars to add red and white touches to my Canada Day mantel. They make great little vases and tealight holders.
Later, on Canada Day I’ll be using them for my table centerpieces – to hold the cutlery, napkins, condiments, and so on.
For a special Canadian flag jar, I used a weaving technique. You can see just how I did it in the video below where I share all kinds of handy tips too:
See how easy that is? It’s a fun project for older kids too! Make one for each of your guests to take home as a sweet party favor in memory of a great Canada Day celebration!
