I’m a dork, and you already know this if you’ve been reading my blog. However I am crafty dork, well, crafty enough to steal other ideas and put them on my blog! Ha ha, j/k (sorta). This is a super easy and cathartic wreath to make. I tend to like things where I can sit and do the same thing over and over, so I can wipe the drool off my chin and not think about life for a while. The hours it will take you to cut all the ribbon and place all the ribbon loops will appease this need. So get your PJ’s on, put a chick flick on TV, get a snack and get comfortable.
First off get some ribbon. Different colors, textures and sizes will look super cool in this wreath, so knock yourself out. You are then going to cut your ribbon into 4 ½ inch sections, you’ll need about 360 pieces (give or take depending on your ribbon width and whatnot).
You will also need a foam wreath form (available at most craft or floral stores, I think mine is 12 inches), and floral pins.
Then fold the ribbon into a loop and pin it into the wreath form.
(Picture to come)
Keep doing that, placing the ribbon loops randomly around the form, facing different directions. Keep doing this until your wreath appears full and you can’t see any of the foam form.
That is pretty much it. It should look like this when you are done.
I gave the purple one to my Mom and the Christmas one to my Grandma and was, briefly, the favorite grandchild, for about a minute.
You can get fancy and add bows or other embellishments, but I’m lazy and didn’t.
