Spruce up your décor with decorative trim

If you are a little tired with some of your home décor, try adding a little ribbon to the trim of your throw pillows, lampshades and picture frames. You might be surprised at how much a little extra ribbon flair will really spice up and renew your living room.  This is a great way to use up some of those longer pieces of extra satin, grosgrain or organza ribbon. If you have some personalized ribbon lying around, you can try that too.

Add color to your dinnerware

Ribbons are a fantastic and subtle way to add color and accents to your life. Leftover ribbon can be used as napkin ties or as little decorative ribbons around the base of your wine glasses. Are you having a dinner party? Give everyone a different color of ribbon to tie around the stem of their wine glasses so that everyone knows whose glass is whose. This is a fantastic way to use up some of that extra satin ribbon while creating a fun and entertaining game for your guests.

Keep keys safe with colorful key chains

This little craft takes no time at all and it can make a world of a difference in your life. For those of you that have a different key for everything (ie. the garage, the shed, the cottage, etc), you can color code your key chains with different colorful ribbon making the keys that you need easier to find.

Stylish bookmarks

I don’t know about you but I feel like I am always loosing my bookmarks and I hate folding down the top edges of my pages to remember where I am. Leftover ribbon is the perfect solution and it is great to use for bookmarks. You can use any type of ribbon as a bookmark (satin, organza or grosgrain) and you can even use your leftover personalized ribbon. If you have time and you want to make your bookmarks more fancy, you can even consider attaching a bell or a charm to the base of the bookmark.

Celebration Garlands

If you have any type of celebration coming up like a birthday party or a baby shower, you can use your leftover ribbon to make a decorative garland. This easy craft will save you money and make you feel great for using your waste instead of just throwing it out.
