4th of July Ribbon Wind Mobile

Ribbon Wind Mobile
The 4th of July is here and I'm so happy because it is one of my favorite holidays!  I made a little addition for our back deck to help us not only show our patriotism for our great country, but also because it's super cute for the 4th.  I made a 4th of July
Ribbon Wind Mobile!

I love how many fun ribbons there are to help make this project.  My favorite place to get them is The Ribbon Retreat because they have so many variety and the price point is great.  I gathered different colors, textures, widths, and lengths.  Everything from ric-rac, curly ribbon, stripes, polka dots, lace, ruffled ribbon, or straight ribbon works for this.  Basically, the possibilities are endless!

After debating on whether I should hang it on my front porch, my back porch, or my deck; I decided to leave it on my back deck because that's where we will be BBQ'in for the 4th of July.

Here is what you'll need for this project:
Embroidery hoop (size of your choice)
Variety of ribbons (I got all mine at The Ribbon Retreat)
Hot glue
Paint

Start off by painting your embroidery hoop the color of your choice.
 Once it is dry, start gluing your ribbon on the hoop.  I did this by folding over the ribbon and gluing it to itself on the inside of the hoop as shown below.
 This project is really easy and probably takes only 10-15 minutes to make not counting the painting part.  It makes such a statement wherever you choose to hang it. 
 I hope you all have a happy 4th of July and if you are planning on making this, have fun!
