If there were an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records for world’s easiest Christmas craft….
….this printed burlap ribbon would be in the running.
You could almost make it and brownies at the same time.
But the brilliance of it….the simplicity and versatility and possibilities of it….
….because this is the craft for you.
How Make Printed Burlap Ribbon
(total aside: only two supplies….see how easy it is so far)
Step 1: Print out what you want to say
This is probably the hardest part of the craft.
No worries. Here’s a few suggestions:
a Christmas carol
words to Twas the Night Before Christmas
Merry Christmas in different languages
words to the 12 Days of Christmas
Then select your favorite font and print out from your computer. Here’s a fun selection of hand-written fonts you can use. I used High Tower for this project.
Step 2: Choose your sharpie
That’s how easy this craft is. One of the steps is choosing a marker.
Pick the color you want your words to be.
Step 3: Place the words under your burlap ribbon and trace
The burlap is see-through….so it’s easy to see the letters underneath. Just center letters and trace. You might want to go over the letters a few times to make them bold enough to see.
10 minutes and two craft supplies and three steps later….you’re done.
And now you’re thinking….okay….the ribbon’s done….now what do I do with it.
And that….my wonderful, incredible, Guinness World Record crafter….is the best part. Because simply put….
….the possibilities are endless.
You could tie it onto the back of a chair.
Or add it to a pumpkin….oh wait….wrong holiday.
And on….and on….and on.
