I saw a post on Pinterest last year and bought wooden rings and ribbon. It took FOREVER for the ribbon to come. So… I made them this weekend. I am so excited to try them with “my kids”!!
I got my 3 inch wooden rings from HERE.
Ribbon is VERY expensive. I got my ribbon from HERE.
Check out this Pinterest post to get info on how to make it HERE.
I took a picture of my kindergarteners dancing with the ribbon rings. Originally, I had intended to put 6 ribbons on it but decided to only put 3.
A couple of tips about making them:
1. the satin ribbon slips off, even after tying 3 knots. Use a lighter to melt the ribbon together slightly. Be careful not to do too much or it will burn a hole in the ribbon. (I learned this from experience)
2. Also use a lighter to melt the ends of the ribbon to keep them from fraying. Just melt it a little. There is also a product called “Fray Check” you can find at the fabric store.
