These curled ribbon ornaments are so festive and pretty, it’s hard to believe they’re so easy that you can make them in just minutes!

Because they’re made with curled ribbon, you can match them to any theme or decor, just like my Washi Tape Ornaments — simply choose the right colored ribbon. And since these ornaments don’t cost much to make (in terms of time or money), if your taste changes next year, you can make a whole new batch!

Customize the ornaments for special people by choosing different colors of ribbon:

  • Your child’s school colors
  • Your husband’s favorite sports team’s colors
  • The colors of each family members birthstones
  • The colors from your best friend’s wedding

How to Make These Easy Curled Ribbon Ornaments

These ornaments are so easy to make! All you need is a glue gun and a few items that you can probably find at your local Dollar Store.

Supplies Needed


First, carefully remove the lid from the ornament. If you’re using curling ribbon, use scissors to curl the ribbon.

Then, use the eraser-end of a pencil to push the curled ribbon into the ornament. Continue adding ribbon until the ornament is filled.

If you want to add embellishments, use a glue gun to attach them to the ornament.

You can simply tie some extra ribbon around the stem of the ornament, but a little drop of glue will help secure it for years to come.

Wasn’t that easy? This is a great way to add color to your tree without spending a fortune. Plus, it’s a fun craft to do with the kids.

These also make perfect gifts when you want to do something for lots of people but don’t have a ton of time or money to spend on gifts for everyone. Create a variety for your neighbors, co-workers, friends from church, fellow club members, child’s classmates or team members. You can give them one of these DIY Fabric Mason Jar Lid Ornaments too!

Don’t forget to pin this post so you can find the diretions later when you’re ready to make more ornaments!
