DIY Printed Grain Sack Ribbon

5:07:00 PM

I am loving the look of grain sack ribbon...

Here is an easy way to do it yourself!

I began with washed and bleached drop cloth from Home Depot...

I cut a slit into the edge of the fabric giving me a 3" ribbon 
and I tore it all the way down the length of the fabric.

I removed the strings and was left with a long fringed ribbon...

Using a paint stick I drew a thick line and then 
2 thinner lines down the center of the ribbon...

The perfect imperfect grain sack look.

On another ribbon I wrote the word "joy" in gold paint, 
I used this one at Christmas...

You can probably thing of a zillion uses...

Love them for hanging wreaths...

Do you have any other ideas for grain sack ribbon?
