Ribbons, Ribbons Everywhere

Published March 16, 2012 by pinkpossibilities

With the help of my sister we started building a ribbon wall unit. Here are some photos just keep in mind that it is not finished.

Supplies used were usps box, dowels, 4 pieces of wood, nails, hammer, staple gun and staples.

Tomorrow I will have more photos up and a step by step on how to make this and finish it to look good.

other than the price of the ribbon (doesn’t count on this one.) the cost me $9.20 to build.

here is the breakdown.

(2) pieces of lumber 1x2x8   –  2 for $4.48

usps box  – FREE

Nails, hammer, staple gun, staple  –  FREE (already owned)

(8) dowels .59 each  – $4.72

Total: $9.20

here is a comparable option
this is a 2 dowel ribbon holder at $30.00 from Oriental Trading
