Adding a decorative band of ribbon to a container is a fantastic way to add interest without adding much expense.  There are many different alternatives available in ribbons.  Burlap, lace, grosgrain, tulle, and satin are a few of the materials the ribbon could be made of, not to mention the endless colors available.  Ribbon can be added alone or a small embellishment can be added to help hide the seam.  The possibilities are endless!

Start by gathering all the items that you will need.
