DIY Chevron Burlap Ribbon

Okay… I dig chevron.  I just do.  I’m not ashamed!

 

 

And when I saw this inspiration…  “Burlap? Chevron? Ribbon? Love.”

I happen to love the cotton in this wreath by Orthodox Mom.  Super cute!!!!

I love the chevron ribbon but…

I’m cheap.

And I didn’t want to buy any.

So I thought to myself:

Self… You bought ribbon on a garage sale this summer.  Burlap ribbon from Ballard Designs no less. It was only 1.00 a roll and you got three, you shrewd-efficient-deal-finding girl you!”

Yes I did.  Full rolls of Ballard Designs ribbon for 1.00 each.

I hadn’t done anything with them yet, so I pulled one out one evening along with a black sharpie marker.  I flipped on the TV, plopped down on the couch and started working away at it.

Yes it’s time consuming… But it’s a good while-you-watch-a-movie project!  Really doesn’t take much for brains! 😉

I was anything but exact with the pattern because I wanted it slightly irregular and imperfect.

 I basically just outlined 2 M’s then colored it in… Or W’s if your prefer… 🙂

 It would take a lot longer if you wanted them exact though, and had to measure I’m sure. I’d suggest just buying it if that’s the case.  Ha!

I sure love it though!  Can’t wait to find something to use it on now that I have a whole roll of it!

 I’ll post when I do!  Whoop whoop!
