DIY Ribbon Wall Backdrop
Supplies:
Several Yards of Various Widths of Satin Ribbon in you color choice
Curtain Rod and Brackets
Hot Glue
Blossom Confetti

Step One:
Attach curtain brackets to wall approximately 8 feet from ground. Put curtain rod on brackets. If you do not wish to attach brackets to a wall then you can suspend rod from ceiling.

Step Two:
Measure lengths of ribbon so that they are 5 inches longer than what you need to reach  curtain rod to floor. Use a slip knot to attach the ribbon to the rod with the 5 inches of ribbon hanging behind the longer ribbon. Vary the lengths of ribbon while attaching to the rod.

Step Three:
Attach blossom confetti randomly on lengths of ribbon using a dab hot glue to attach. 

 

Notes:
My 8-foot ribbon wall required 100 yards of 1-inch width ribbon, 50 yards of 3-inch ribbon and 30 yards of 3/8-inch ribbon. Strips of linen or lace would also work very well in this project. Purchasing ribbon in bulk helps make this project more cost effective. Also, save the rolls the ribbon come on because you’ll be able to save most of the ribbon used on this wall for other projects.
