As a young girl, I was obsessed with ribbon.  I saved ribbons, bows, and strings from anything.  Some things never change!  I still love ribbons and bows, and you’d be amazed at how useful a piece of black ribbon can be…

    Love the different ways you’ve used the ribbon! I love it on the pearl necklace, I have a faux pearl necklace from Indigo Rose Designs and it ties with the ribbon, I like swinging it around like you have and having the ribbon bow on display, it looks so nice :)

  2. This is a great post Sam! Ribbons remind me of my childhood when I would wear them in my hair. These ideas are great for grown ups.

  3. Lindsay K says:

    So cute. Love ribbon!

  4. That’s neat Sam!!! I love the elegance of black ribbon. Love it in the hair and against pearls. Some really cool options chicadee!

  5. Such great ideas and so cute! I love it as a headband, belt, and necklace!

    How versatile is this? ! I love how you use them for cufflinks

    • Samantha says:

      Thanks Nelah! Actually, I got the idea when I saw a Tom Ford tuxedo shirt. I tried to find it online, but couldn’t! So I had to recreate the look.

  7. Rachel Lynne says:

    These are great ideas Sam! I never thought of just using a ribbon as a belt… (I’m now thinking… duh :) ) I also love the idea for a headband and choker!

    this is genius, I love it!

  9. Stephanie G says:

    oh i never thought to use it to shorten a necklace. that’s so creative! i used to collect a lot of ribbons when i was still in malaysia; actually just bought some to sew onto the side of an old pair of jeans!

    Ohh I like it as a cuff link! Could also braid it into your hair :) Thanks for the tips!

  13. kimberlyloc says:

    ok this is my kind of DIY. how simple and chic and inexpensive! i love these little posts like this, sam. keep em coming! xo

  14. Sam, I’ll never look at ribbons the same way after this. I feel awful for chucking out a whole bunch of beautiful ribbons because I didn’t know what to do with them.

    I’m looking for mutual followers.

  16. Lily Marek says:

    Great ideas! The cufflinks one is so cute!

  17. Hilary says:

    Love the cufflink idea, Sam!! I think I’ll give that one a try. :-)

  18. Ooh love these! The necklace, headband and belt are my favorite! :D

  19. Sam! I love this post! Such great ideas that I would have never thought of on my own! My favorite is definitely the ribbons as cuffs! That’s going to be the next thing I try…though I’ll need to get a cuff shirt first!
