Forget string art. Make some ribbon art!
I have a fun, new idea for ribbon. You’ve seen string art, I’m sure. It’s been pretty popular for the last couple of years for creating unique wall art. I’m calling this project “Ribbon Art.” It’s the same concept, minus all those nails. And the colors is so much bolder!
Today I’m going to show you how I made this geometric heart ribbon art.
The geometric heart file available for download is sized to fit the back side of a 9×12″ canvas. Trim the paper so it will sit within the frame, face up. Tape it down as needed so it won’t shift.
If you’re a scrapbooker, you’re familiar with an eyelet punch. If don’t know what that is, you can find them in your local craft store in the scrapbooking section or on Amazon. Use the largest eyelet punch in the set and punch holes in every corner of the heart.
Go back and make extra holes along the lines of the heart for extra places to thread the ribbon through later.
When you flip the canvas over you should see a heart pattern full of holes.
The pattern on the front of the canvas is now reversed from the original heart pattern. Flip the paper over to the back and color in the different sections with the colors you plan to use. This will act as a guide while you thread the ribbon.
Begin threading the ribbon within it’s quadrant in the geometric heart. Keep the pattern random, but try not to leave any huge gaps. I also avoided threading along the border of each quadrant.
Continue doing the same with all of the ribbon colors.
Isn’t fun the amazing things a little ribbon can make?
