DIY Printed Grain Sack Ribbon

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?

  3. On my to do list today is the fabric store for tree skirt stuff. I want some of this ribbon too, so I added it. Unless all of Minnesota bought it up before I get there.


  4. I love it--as always! Merry Christmas!!!

  5. Love them both Susan--but I love anything and everything drop cloth. The JOY looks great on the tree!


  6. I love them both,, and I almost always have drop cloth. What a great idea. The JOY ribbon looks really pretty on the tree
