Now that show season is winding down for most of us it’s time to make room for this year’s hard earned prizes. Some people do so when they run out of room on their wall.
I’m all about ReUse and UpCycling to reduce our impact, and in my opinion ever little bit helps. With that in mind I researched and found a bunch of cool ideas. Here are a few alternative ideas for those favorite ribbons you might want to keep.
You can start with something easy like a Wreath
Or a Picture Frame
Decorating with them can be fun and interesting
Crafty ideas include Stuffed Animals and Ornaments
Personal items include Belts and Pocket Books
If you are really ambitious how about a Wall Hanging
or Trunk Cover?
Here is a link for ribbon project patterns:
If you aren’t that crafty and are looking for someone to do the work with your ribbons, here are a few links:
- Distinctive Designs by Diana
- Ribbon Quilts
- Keepsake Ribbon Quilts
- Show Throw
- The Repurposed Rider
- Bespoke Equestrian
If you are ready to get rid of some of your ribbons all together, here is a link to an organization that accepts donations of horse show ribbons:
