Lace and Ribbon Swag Backdrop at

A couple months ago I did my first boutique sale where I had to come up with a complete display. I needed a backdrop that would draw attention but be easy to create and travel with. I decided to create a ribbon and lace swag. I made it with a combination of different shades of pink, white and off white lace and ribbon. What was nice about this is I was able to use up some vintage scrap pieces of lace I had on hand. I received a lot of compliments and not only does it work for shows but it can be great for bedrooms, backdrops at parties and more!

What you will need:

Lace and/or Ribbon (how much you use will depend on how full and long you want the swag)


Measuring Tape

How to:

Start out with measuring a long piece of thick lace trim. Be sure to keep in mind that this will bow down so make it approximately 2 feet longer than you need it to be.

Cut pieces of lace that are approx 18-24 inches long. You can cut shorter ones too if you are low on a certain lace.

Tie the ribbon and lace on, one by one. To do this to where your lace and ribbon can easily be adjusted from side to side, create a loop on one side then pull the two pieces through.

Fill the swag with different pieces of ribbon and lace then loop the ends so that the ends can hang on nails.
