Questions Answered about the Ribbon Holder
*To make this, I bought three of these from IKEA, but you could do the same thing with a 1X8 piece of wood (It would probably cost less.)
*Buy some wood dowels. I purchased mine from Lowe's for a dollar I think. They come in all sorts of sizes. I think I ended up buying either 1/4" or 1/2" diameter. Just look at the diameter of the dowel and think about how big it could be and still go through the thread or ribbon.
Last, I caulked all of the seams with paintable caulk and then spray painted it. I used a satin black spray paint. Make sure to spray paint your dowels the ribbon goes on as well.
There you have it. A detailed step by step of how it is all done.
I hope this helps answer all of the questions, but like I said before, please let me know if there are other questions. I love to be able to help!
