I'd love to see your ribbon collections if anyone else makes some, it's fun to share and show off! Cheesy
I am totally making these after the holidays - or this weekend if I can find the time  Wink  I will post pictures since my ribbon stash is almost as ridiculous as my fabric stash Grin

Thank you so much for sharing this idea.  I'm gonna make these for me and my MIL.  She NEEDS this so bad!

Thanks guys!  I showed them to my 3-d (RL) friends tonight.  They weren't impressed, but they aren't crafty.

I'm so glad for my Craftsteriffic pals to have the gratitude for my project.  YOU guys rock!

Thanks all!  I hope you guys make some.
 

People have been telling me to make them to sell, but they are so simple, it seems silly to try to sell them.  So, go make them yourselves! Cheesy

Thanks so much for this idea. I went to Hobby Lobby today and got all the materials and let my dh use his new drill to drill the holes. I have all my ribbon on them already, I haven't even painted them yet because I was so excited.

Hooray!  That's awesome.  It's a lovely feeling to help others around the world organize their pretty craft supplies.  I went back and got yellow and orange last weekend to round out my rainbow.  (obsessed much, me?)

I noticed at Hobby Lobby that they sell wooden wheels about this size that ALREADY have a hole drilled already; PLUS you can buy packs of 12" dowels!  Match up the right size and all you need is wood glue!  It will cost about $1.50 each to make them this way (instead of .65 cents) but it's a great way to cheat if you don't have a drill!

I know! I bought the package of dowels, I have 10 left that I am either going to have to make more ribbon holders or figure out some other organizing use for them. I saw the wooden 'wheels' when I was looking for the plaque holders and thought about them but wasn't sure how sturdy they would be.

Argh!  I don't know how to post pictures, and it's so frustrating!  I made one of these yesterday but added my own little improvement.

I painted mine bright turquoise blue and put an antique cut glass drawer knob on the top.  My husband dubbed it a "deterrent against little grubby monkey fingered people" but I called it sparkly goodness.  Either way, they can't pull the spools off the dowels!
