Win, Place & Show Ribbons Centerpiece

DIY Kentucky Derby Decorations
I decided to add a bit to my Kentucky Derby Decorations this year by making some Prize Ribbon to use as a centerpiece.

I used the Number Junque, Spring Circus, Quaterfoil, & Chevron kits from Rhonna Designs.

In Horse Racing, the first place horse Wins, the 2nd place horse Places,  and the 3rd place horse Shows.  Hence;  Win, Place, Show are terms you hear a lot at the track.

I just made simple lollies (or rosettes is that what they are called??) using 3 strips of 12″ wide scrapbook paper.   I have the Martha Stewart scoring board which made the whole job really easy.

A few of the lollies are punched (also a Martha Stewart product) on the edge to give them some decoration.

I hot glued plastic horses on to them… I can’t decide, if the plastic horses are cool, or just taking it a bit too far… but I like ’em. (maybe next year I’ll spray paint them gold *wink*)

    These prize ribbons are gorgeous! I love the colors and punches you used to make them extra fancy. As for the little horses, totally keep them on there. They are the perfect added touch!

    I just found your website and I love all the cute Derby things you make. I live in Louisville as well and am always looking for new decor for my derby party. Thanks for all the inspiration.
