I recently received a custom Etsy order for ribbon wands for a child’s birthday. The colors were gold, purple, lilac and navy – LOVE! Sooo, royal with the gold bells and rich colors. I hope to have some orders for the upcoming wedding season. They are easy and fun to make. I now have perfected heat sealing the ends with quick pass of flame from a multi-purpose lighter.
Color idea pallet: I paired a 1/2 inch with a 1/4 inch gold ribbon to get a wider width as I could not find a suitable grosgrain. Final colors were 2,3,5 and 6.
Here is my DIY Tutorial for all the details: http://oddsandhens.com/2013/09/12/ribbon-wands-diy/
I rolled them up and tied them with gold thread before sending so that they would nice and curly for the party.
I would love to see pictures of your ribbon wands or make sure for your upcoming special event, big or small!
