DIY Award Medallion Ribbon

DIY Award Medallion Ribbons can be used for so many different things such as; award ceremonies, prizes, birthdays, centerpieces and so much more. I actually use mine in a Horse Race Center Piece that I will be sharing with you at a later date.  I decided to make my own when I went in search of buying some and had no success.

What you will need:

  • Ribbon (with wire)
  • Scissors
  • Stapler
  • Glue (E6000 or Hot Glue Gun)
  • Fastener (to pin on shirt)
  • Skewer (to use in centerpiece)

Step 1: Prepare the Ribbons

I started out by cutting 5 ribbons the same length.  I cut my ribbon about 6 inched long but you can change the length depending on how large or small you want your medallion to be.  I also recommend that you use ribbon with wire, this helps to make the ribbon loops stand up and not sag. Choose one of the ribbons; fold the ribbon in half and cut V’s in the end of the ribbon, this ribbon will be as the tail later.


Step 2: Creating the Bow

Place the ribbon on the table; fold the ribbons in on both ends so they meet in the middle. Use a little dab of glue to hold in place.  Repeat this with the other four ribbons.


Now, place the ribbons on top of each other to create what looks like a flower.


Once, you have your flower staple the ribbons together.


Here is a picture of what your ribbons should look like.


Now, take your final ribbon with the cut ends and fold it into a V-shape.

Medalion ribbon

Glue the ribbon on to the back of the ribbon flower that you made to create your medallion.


On this ribbon medallion I hot glued a pin fastener to the back.


I decide to use my medallions as part of some centerpieces so I hot glued skewer to this medallion.


Step 3: Add Medallion Center

I created the center of the medallion using iPiccy and circle paper punch. I used two different sized circle punches to give the center contrast.

DIY Award Medallion can be used for so many different things and customized to fit the event.
