Horse Show Ribbons

We have collected horse show ribbons over the years. They have such wonderful, brilliant colors. The pink and turquoise are our favorites. Here are a few ideas on what to do with, love, love this wreath!

Tiffany, from Shabby Scraps (one of our favorite vendors at our shows) uses them as a valance to her curtains.

Bridal Survival used them as place cards for a wedding.

Here is a creative way to use them in a bedroom.

You could also use them to decorate your holiday tree or use them as colorful bows for birthday or holiday presents. What a treat if would be to receive one of these on a gift! You certainly would feel special, don't you agree?


  1. I love these ribbons. I wonder how they would look all over one of my Lollibags?

  2. I love, love, love them too. I brought one home from a flea market last summer and everyone in my family thought I was nuts. I told 'em "whatever makes me happy". I pinned it on a wicker dress form and I think it looks fabulous.
    So sorry to hear about your fav pillow. I had a blue heeler for 18 years. They are great dogs but they love to "kill" household items.
    I hope you find a new one.

  3. I love the great look of old ribbons- the wreath is so charming!!

  4. Love your blog!! I have a million of these ribbons because I WON them when I used to compete!! thank you for giving me inspiration of what to do with them! Glad I found you tonight! I'll be back :)

  5. Love ribbons like these..Ilona Steelhammer often has some in her space at Catty Wampus, but I never thought of using them around a canopy frame, or on a valance, although I've used vintage pennants that way. Thanks for sharing these ideas.

  6. I have a stash of pink, white & lavender ribbons . . . so pretty.

    Love that wreath!!

  7. Love your post with horse ribbons! I live in a horse barn and made a horseshoe shaped wreath for my front door this year and used a horse show ribbon as the bow. Thanks for your even better wreath idea! Love your blog.
