I didn't know if I should put this here or not so I just my as well have, I hate controlling on my iPad anyways. But anyways.... the ribbons I have so far kinda just end up places, and I really want to hang them on my wall. Now the problem is I have no idea how to get them up. I tried using string and the string just fell off the wall =\ They all have hooks on the back so that's good I guess. So how would the best way to get them up there? And what do you guys do with your riding/horse winnings? (whatever that would be if you know what I mean).

How did you attach the string to the wall? It should work...Just use two nails and tie the ends of the string to each nail to secure it.

Well really, The string broke.... I don't know how though. So I decided not to use that string. My dad said maybe fishing wire or something but he doesn't have any and won't go buy me any and I don't have any more for it... So.. Yeah that's basically it.

I use thin ribbon, like the kind you put on presents. I cut off long piece of it, tie each end around a thumb tack in like a triple not, then hang it tightly to the wall. Make sure the ribbon is very tight and there's no slack in it.

I use this method as well. It works quite well.

I take my numbers from shows, and the shoelace/string or what ever the give you works well to hold them. staple the number to the wall with the string going through the back of it (staple the strings to the wall). Then you stretch either side of the string out and staple it. It can fit up to 3 ribbons on each side. if there's too much slack, pull the end of the string and it should tighten up

Mine are in boxes in the attic lmfao /lazy. But before I moved, some were hung with fishing line, and some just had a thumb tack through the metal clip if I was lazy or the fishing line was full and i didn't feel like making another row.

Before I had to take them all down I had some hanging at the top of my blinds, a lot of them were on bulletin boards, and I also had some of them strung on twine.

i bought scalloped molding from home depot, we glued strips of cork onto it and put the molding on my wall and then i put a thumb tack through the clip of the ribbon and push it into the cork. it's more work than most people would want to do i guess, but it goes across my whole wall and I really like it. (: i'll try to edit in a picture later.

My mom came up with the idea to use a curtain thing(the type that goes onthe wall but also holds up the curtain) and the just hook the ribbons onto that since most ribbons have the metal hook on the back I believe. And then I ran out of room on that so we hung chains on the sides of my windows and put the type of curtain thing that goes into a holder thing and put those in the chain and hang ribbons on that. They also work if you put them like right by each other as a curtain.

I got a shadow box for mine, and then you can stick pictures from your show you won them at in there. It looks great to me and it makes it seem more special.
