However, I even have seen ribbon sculptures on Etsy et al., and that i assume they're simply manner too cute, thus i made a decision that this may be the proper chance to vary and check out creating one. And what's a lot of summery  than a giant ball of sunny joy….especially on this tiny gal?! Not a lot of.

  2. french ribbon (1" wide)
  3. a hot glue gun and hot glue
  4. scissors
Start by cutting your circle of felt. This won't really show. it's the bottom that you simply can glue all of your ribbon onto. Cut no matter size of circle you'd like. I needed mine pretty massive, and, as you'll be able to see, I used my optical lens because the circle type for activity.
