I'm redoing my craft room. I painted it and put it mostly back together but I'm not quite finished. But I thought I'd post a picture of my ribbon storage area. I had my husband put 4 screw hooks in the upper windowsill. I then used some chain (the kind you hang light fixtures and such from) and attached it to the hooks I then made slings out of fabric and slid 2 dowel rods through on each side of the sling. At the end of each dowel is 2 eye hooks. I attached the slings to the chains with s hooks. I made 5 slings. I also threaded my curling ribbon on to single dowel rods and hung them below the slings.

These work really well. And I can leave the ribbon hanging over the edge of the slings or have it not show for a cleaner look. I could have just used different sized dowel rods with eye hooks on the ends to store the ribbon, but I didn't want to unstring 20 spools of ribbon when I emptied a spool. I didn't worry about that with the curling ribbon because the spools are bigger and there is ALOT of ribbon on those spools.

I can give better directions and take better pictures if anyone is interested.  I didn't realize how blurry this was until I posted it here and on my blog.

This is a great idea, I like that you can put them away from view!  I can't wait to have my own craft room, just a few more months lol.

This is a beautiful idea! I hope to have a collection that rivals yours someday just so I can store it so neatly. : )

What a creative solution.  By looking around these forums, I'm beginning to think that my subconscious is urging me to buy a houses for the express purpose of having a space to devote to random craftiness.  It's my right to have slings for my ribbons!
