$2 Walmart Ribbon Transformation



Today while leisurely (hahahahaha) shopping with the kids at Walmart, I spotted this gorgeous chocolate brown and aqua blue damask ribbon for $2. I searched for more so I could buy it all up, but sadly this was the only roll. On a happy note, it was the only roll and I found it! There was just enough on the spool to wrap both my lamps and tie a cute little bow.



I love adding splashes of this beautiful blue against my chocolate walls...such a nice compliment.



I know that I have professed my love for ribbon over and over and over. But seriously, it is so versatile. One of the most inexpensive ways to dress up an area that needs a little extra punch!

Love it! What would you recomend for thinner ribbon. I have about 1569 million spools ar home of leftover wedding ribbon & am at a loss as to what to do w/ it all :-/ Any suggestions?

It's gorgeous! I also have a ribbon addiction... I need to go find this ribbon at my Walmart!

Kim said...

Wow that is just gorgeous! I love chocolate and blue together. I have nothing blue in my house so I may have to pretend it matches so I can use it :) Also love your 'prays together' plaque/frame. Would love a close up of it and whether you made or bought it?

Girl, you have awesome ribbon skills. Seriously!

And that ribbon is Absolutely Amanda. I never see aqua any more without thinking of you!

Lee Laurie said...

Perfect color for you! Those plates are beautiful too. All of it shows up so well against your brown wall. The baby in the frame is precious too!

Hugs,

Oh I just love ribbon. I spent over $10 last week on ribbon at Michaels. Why? Oh just bc it was on clearance and each spool had polka dots. Dumbo that I am. And, if I had been at Walmart and saw that ribbon before you had, it would be in my home. :) So glad you spotted it first though.

You are so good at crating vignettes. Everytime I see your pictures I think it is from a magazine. You really have an eye for it.
