Ribbon Tied Silverware Setting DIY

Simple DIY Ribboned Silverware 

Who doesn't love saving a little money while being crafty at the same time?  We're big fans of practical DIY wedding projects and our ribbon tied silverware is an inexpensive and easy way to bring a little glam to your tablescape without being complicated.  DIY doesn't always mean hours of work and a few hundred dollars at Hobby Lobby, a good DIY wedding project glams up a space and frees up room in your budget to hire wedding professionals to handle the most important aspects of your day.   Whether you're planning a simple brunch with your bridal party or planning for a wedding guest list of 200, this tutorial will keep you on budget and fabulous.   


  • Silverware place setting
  • Sheer ribbon (1/2 inch thickness works best)
  • Rosemary
  • Scissors

Step 1:  Lay your silverware out with the knife on the bottom, this ensures the silverware will lay flat. 


Step 2:  Tie a small piece of ribbon around the set of silverware. We like to fan them out but you can arrange it however you like.  If you want to add drama to your tablescape, use a longer piece of ribbon.  


Step 3:  Cut a sprig of rosemary and tuck it into the ribbon tie.

Step 4:  Twist the ribbon around your finger to give it a natural curl.  


Simple and Easy! It doesn't take long to give a little glam to your table.  In the brunch table setting below, we used our ribbon tutorial paired with rosemary wreaths from Melissa Timm Designs, vintage goblets from Unique Settings Rentals and left out the sprig of rosemary. There are so many variations and the possibilities are endless!
