This month we are being sponsored by The Ribbon Retreat, one of my favorite online sites to purchase ribbons and lace!
(Remember my post about Layering Ribbons on a Vase? Those gorgeous ribbons and embellishments were from The Ribbon Retreat too!)
Our theme for this round of Crafty Hangouts is Patriotic Crafts, just in time for the July 4th holiday!
A: Chevron Ribbon (comes in many pretty colors!)
B: 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon (comes in many pretty colors!)
C: American Flag Ribbon

The candles used in the video are basic glass pillar candles, sometimes called Prayer Candles or Devotional Candles. You can find them at the dollar store (where I found mine) and at many grocery stores.
You can also find the candles on Amazon. Here’s a link to an example of what you can find there:
These candles are fantastic to use for weddings or any special occasion where you want a long-burning candle. (And the decorating possibilities are endless!)
The double-sided tape I used in the video is from American Crafts and can be found at most craft stores. You can also buy the tape on Amazon here:
