Simple Red, White and Blue Ornaments or Ribbon Embellishments

I'll be decorating my little feather tree for the summer holidays soon and whipped up a couple super simple Ribbon Ornaments, they'd be cute embellishments for barrettes or napkin rings too. I found the Air Force buttons on clearance at Walmart many years ago and think they're perfect for this project! The only thing I may add is a little fine gold glitter to the outer edge of the button-I do love me some bling:@)
There really aren't any directions here folks: just cut the ribbon and fold one edge over, either glue or sew together. Add any fun buttons and sequins you have, either glue or sew on. I added a little fishing line to hang them on my tree.
 Have a happy day:@)


  1. Cute idea, Lynn! I know you're so ready for your Summer tree and your BBQ season. Happy sunshine and warm breezes are my wishes for you.

  4. I love the attention to details in these.

  5. Love both of these ribbons, but the Air Force button one speaks to me a little louder since Hubby is an Air Force vet. Very nice!

  6. Wonderful for the 4th. Blessings, Catherine

  7. Very patriotic and the perfect size for your feather tree.

    1. Just found your blog came for one topic and stayed for many. :) Need some help can you tell me how to print your recipes. I can't find the icon for the printer on your page. Thanks so much!

  9. Lynn, I LOVE these ribbons especially with the buttons added! Were you in the Air Force during those years? I am thinking perhaps you were but I never knew that. I have had good luck decorating buttons with paint pens, even adding a little very fine glitter to the wet paint and if you get a fine tip one you can really do little details. Linda

  10. Lynn, I just saw Linda's comment above, thank you for your service! I love the idea of the ribbons used for or with napkin rings :)

  11. I love your patriotic ornaments, Lynn! I'm glad you mentioned the bit about napkin rings because that gives me some ideas for summer holiday tables. :) I remember you were in the Air Force because you were stationed in England for awhile, weren't you? Thank you for your service to all of us! Have a wonderful weekend!!
