DIY Printed Grain Sack Ribbon

5:07:00 PM

I love 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?
