Cheap Home Decor with Ribbons

Greetings from Indiana. The current weather forecast has me wanting to do nothing other than laying in bed, drinking hot chocolate, and watching movies all day. It’s raining. It’s cold. It’s disgusting outside. To make matters worse.. I have class within the hour. However, it seemed like the perfect time to add some decor to my room. My roommate and I went to Walmart last night and bought all of the supplies for only $3.. You can’t beat that, college students! Here’s how to do it.

This is a DIY post is for hanging pictures on a wall involving ribbons, thumbtacks, and small wooden clips.

Step 1: Pick a section of the wall where you would like to hang a couple of pictures. With the ribbon and one thumbtack, stick the very end of the ribbon through the thumbtack and press it onto the wall.

Tip: If you live in a dorm room, trust me, I KNOW the room frees and damages that could be done, or if the room is one big cement block, you can use double-sided tape for the ribbon.

Step 2: With the pictures that you would like to hang (these could also be To Do lists, tickets, or etc., I have my ID card from when I spent the summer in France and England, pictures, and  a part of a card that my best friend made me), space out the ribbon of where you would like to hang what picture where. Keep adding thumbtacks between the sections of where you would like the pictures to be. Cut the ribbon at the end.

Tip: The sections between the pictures do not have to be equal. It looks more unique this way.

Step 3: Clip the pictures with the wooden clips onto the ribbon.
