I was looking for a little something to sit and make while I was very, very pregnant this fall and I came up with this ribbon wreath and thought I would share it with you. It's really easy to make and I love the way it looks hanging up in our house!
1 spool of ribbon for base/background color
5 or 6 spools of ribbon for the actual wreath - I used ribbon with wire because I think it will hold up better, but you could use other types of ribbon, too.
hot glue gun
To start, wrap your Styrofoam wreath in the base color, securing both ends with hot glue. I used white as my base color.
When they are cut, you want to fold each one in half and glue it about 1/4" - 1/2" from the bottom like so:
Now it's time to glue all your ribbon on to the wreath! I put all the ribbon in a plastic bag and mixed them up so I could grab them out randomly. Then all you have to do is put some hot glue on the flat ribbon base and glue away! Remember to twist and turn the ribbon so it's not all uniform all the way around.
Happy wreath making, friends!
