Make An Awareness Ribbon
Awareness ribbons are colorful ribbons worn in to bring awareness & show support for a specific cause.
You need: felt scraps that are at least 8” long & 3” wide, rotary cutter & mat, ruler, & glue gun. Pin tack backing & earring posts are optional.
1
For a larger ribbon cut a 1”x 7” felt strip. Keep the scraps for smaller ribbons!
2
Pull the strip lengthwise.
3
Form the shape of the awareness ribbon.
4
Glue the fold in the ribbon together using the glue gun.
5
Now let’s make awareness ribbon pins!
To make a medium size ribbon, cut a strip that measures 1/2” x 4.5”.
6
Repeat the previous steps: pull the felt strip lengthwise, then form your ribbon. You may or may not glue this depending on it’s application.
7
This size also works for pins. You can also use this as an appliqué for a bag or pillow. For those projects no glue, just thread.
8
For a small ribbon, the felt should be 3/8” x 2”.
9
You’re now a pro at ribbon forming, yes?
10
Use glue if you want to make earrings. Thread is all you need if this will be a delicate appliqué.

Making awareness pins & earrings are an easy way to start but the options are endless.
