DIY Ribbon Wreath

      You are going to LOVE how easy it is to make a wreath like this one. I saw it on Pinterest last year (when Pinterest was just a baby......love that site!) and made this wreath last fall and seriously couldn't wait for this fall to put it up again.

                                                     


                     All you will need are:

  •            A metal ring from a craft store. I got mine at JoAnne's for about $2.00. There were a few different sizes. Of course, I bought the biggest one.

  •            A variety of ribbon in the colors you want.
                     Hint, it is easier to get a fuller looking wreath if you buy ribbon that is wired however, it is also more expensive. I would try to get the biggest spools you can find in the ribbon you love, and use one of their 40% off coupons that come in the newspaper. If you want to do a wreath as frugally as you can, then get regular ribbon. I used 4 different ribbons in my wreath and I needed about 3 (average size) spools of each color.


        To make your wreath simply cut strips of the ribbon. (I cut my wired ribbon about 9 inches long - this is something you will have to play around with to get the look you want)

                                                       

        Then tie a tight bow around the metal ring. Fluff out the loops of the bow.

 
 
 
                                       

         Repeat in the color pattern you desire.

                                       

         To hang it from my door, I simply used a longer piece of one of the ribbons used in the wreath.

                                       


        You're done!!  Do you love it?!

 
 
                                                 
                                
              

      I LOVE this project because you can make a wreath for any season or theme that you want! The possibilities are endless. Make one with your favorite sports team colors or give it as a gift to that special sports fan in your life. It is football season! (Go Steelers!) Make one for Christmas, one for Valentines Day, Easter, and 4th of July.  Do one in a bride and groom's wedding colors for a great personalized shower present.  Think of how adorable this would look hanging in a baby's nursery- what a great baby shower gift!

           Get going to the craft store, you know you want to  ;-)
    Thanks for stopping by, everyone!
