How to Keep Ribbon from Fraying

Three Methods:Applying Nail PolishUsing Craft Glue/SprayHeat Sealing Ribbons

Synthetic and natural fabric ribbons tend to fray and separate at the edges. You can extend the life of your ribbon by cutting it at a diagonal and applying heat, nail polish or glue to the edges.

Method 1 of 3: Applying Nail Polish

    Find extremely sharp fabric scissors. The sharper the scissors, the better the edge of the ribbon will be.

    Measure the length of your ribbon. Snip the edge at a 45-degree angle, or cut it in an inverted “v” shape to discourage fraying.

    Purchase clear nail polish. Use a good quality, trusted brand that you know encourages long wear.

    Apply a thin layer to the edges of the ribbon. You can either hold the ribbon in your hand and paint it at the very edge or lay it flat and paint one side, and then flip it and paint the other side.
