Finishing Attaching Ribbon: Make a larks head knot onto the each ring with the ribbons. Basically, fold a piece of ribbon in half, insert the folded end of the ribbon through the bone ring, then pull the other 2 ends of the ribbon through the loop of the other end of the ribbon. Tighten up the knot on the ring. Then weave the ends of the ribbon onto the sides of the hammock starting at the outside corners and working your way to the center of the sides. Tie a bow to secure. Since this is not to carry a heavy load, this should be strong enough to stay put.
