From lampshades to planters, workplace decor looks better with ribbon.
Now that the holidays are over, it’s time to put all those extra gift-wrapping ribbons to good use. Accessorize your workplace by adding ribbons to interior decorations and office supplies. Decorating your office is tons of fun and a great way to bring more excitement to your work space. Employees and visitors will love seeing these strips of color throughout your office. And, giving them something beautiful to look at builds a positive company image.
Here are seven easy ways to decorate your workplace using leftover ribbons.
Use ribbon strips to create a unique wreath for your office door. Choose colors that match your logo or go well with your work space. Easy and quick to make, this circle of color will bring a smile to colleagues and guests as they enter your office. All it takes is a circular object and any extra ribbons you have.
Even a casual work environment can use a ribbon chandelier. And the best part is you can make it however you want. Whether you just let your ribbons hang down in a straight line or do something fancier, a chandelier will add character to your work space.
Pots and Plants
An easy, quick way to use extra ribbons is tying them around any flower vases you have in your office. Large potted plants also look amazing with ribbon accessories. Once you wrap a ribbon around the planter, consider also putting bows on the plant itself. Make sure your ribbon colors match the plants to create the perfect look for your conference room or office.
With custom ribbons and a little imagination, turn ordinary pens into something extraordinary. Wrap ribbon around each pen then add glitter or rhinestones to give them extra flair. Give a decorative pen to each employee and save a few for the front desk. Visitors will appreciate your creativity and may even hope they take your front desk pens by accident.
Deck the Walls
Long and flowing ribbons are perfect to make garlands to decorate a hallway or room. And don’t just use ribbons. Get creative with decorative pieces like beads, feathers and seashells. This is your chance to add your personal touch to your workplace.
Trim your floor and table lamps with leftover ribbons. Glue pieces of ribbon to a lampshade in a horizontal or vertical stripe pattern. Once you’re done, put the lampshade back on to enjoy your new work of art.
Sew ribbon strips together to decorate your break room or foyer with trendy pillow cushions. This project allows you to take any combination of ribbons you want and make something unique. And, colleagues and guests will appreciate having something comfortable to lean against while sitting.
So, from light fixtures to writing instruments, extra ribbons are a great opportunity to decorate your workplace and use your creativity.
