6 Smart Ways to Organize Your Ribbons & Twine, As Found on Pinterest

Sale Ribbons from Designer Fabrics

Ribbon has a way of turning itself into a big mess of knots. Here are five ways to keep it — as well as twine — in order:

  1. Make a low-budget DIY ribbon dispenser: Put spools of ribbon onto dowels (chopsticks could work too), then place in a basket with holes; thread ribbon ends out through the holes. By Halsey on Spunky Junky.
  2. Thread spools of ribbon onto a multi-tiered pants hanger. Found on the Creating Keepsakes blog.
  3. Wind ribbons around cards, then keep in an over-the-door clear pocket organizer. From AllPeopleQuilt.com.
  4. Store bakers twine in a sugar dispenser pulling the end out through the opening. From the Whisker Graphics blog (makers of Divine Twine).
  5. Use an old spice rack. By Natalie Jost as featured on the Papernstitch blog (original source link not available).
  6. Hang rolls on tension rods hung in a bookcase. Bonus idea: mount a ruler to the shelf below for measuring ribbon on the spot. By Karen on Sew Many Ways.
