With a quick and smooth flick of the scissors, curling ribbon magically appears fluffy and curly.

Curling Ribbon Bracelet
To make this craft, measure your wrist with curling ribbon (use two to three different colors to make it more unique) and cut long strands in each color. Use your scissors and curl the ribbon then start braiding the curling ribbon like you would your hair. Tie off the braid with a knot and wrap this bracelet around your wrist and tie.
Curling Ribbon Hairdo
Make a bamboo French braid across your daughter’s hair and make sure to braid in curling ribbon. Once you reach the end of the braid, curl the ends of the ribbon for a flirtatious look.
Curling Ribbon Backdrop
Buy curling ribbon in bulk and make this adorable photo backdrop from A to Zebra decorations. Curl long pieces of ribbon and attach to a spool then hang behind a photo booth or table. Change up the colors to match your theme (this photo has an Easter theme).
Curling Ribbon Flowers

Curling Ribbon Ornaments
This is adorable and what a great gift for kids to make for their grandparents. Teach the kids how to curl ribbon with scissors and then add the curling ribbon strips into an ornament. Fun and creative! The more colors, the more fun! Photo from Gracious Rain.
Curling Ribbon Wig
How silly! You can make a Shirley Temple, Ronald McDonald, or other fun characters with infamous curly hair. This wig is actually for purchase on Etsy, but you can make your own with a hair net and lots of curling ribbon.
Curling Ribbon Rose
Why didn’t we think of this? Curling ribbon rose! Just cut a circle felt, curl curling ribbon, and start gluing and twisting your ribbon the felt. Continue the process until you reach the end of the felt piece. You may need to do layers to get the same height as the one in the photo. Interesting!
