Ribbon Wreath

Since I have the day off today... I have decided to start my Halloween decorations. Surprisingly, the Dollar Store was short on fun things, so I am going to head to Target later on. I came across this website to make a ribbon wreath. I am going to change it up a little bit and make mine with orange, black, and hot pink ribbon.

Here are the instructions if you are interested in making one too...


  • 12″ foam wreath form
  • 24 yards 1 1/4″ black grosgrain ribbon (or less if using a wider ribbon)
  • Scissors
  • Measuring tape


  1. Cut 45-50 16″ pieces of ribbon.
  2. Tie one strand of ribbon in a knot around the wreath. I used a “messy knot” — right over left, then right over left again, pulling in the opposite direction. It doesn’t really matter how you do it as long as you are consistent all the way around. Repeat with the knots, pushing them close together, until you fill the wreath.
  3. Cut one long piece of ribbon (48″) and tie one end to form a knot. Leave a long loop for hanging and tie another knot onto the wreath.
  4. Trim any frayed or long ends.
I found a supplier for ribbon here. In order to have enough to make me one and one for my sister, I am getting 60 yards of 1 1/2 ribbon. The prices are so much better when you buy wholesale online! Maybe I will have enough left over for other crafts!

Oh the places you go!

It is amazing at how fast time flies... not only when you are having fun, but when you are busy with work and trying to make a name for yourself in the "adult world." Muffy and I have traveled all over the country for horse shows. It has been a wonderful show season, and we will be settling down for the winter in November. Hopefully, that means that I will have time to start blogging consistently again!

Just a few updates on my life...

Here is a picture of Muffy from a few weeks ago. This was right after her first trip to the pet spa!

I hosted my first dinner party in the new apartment. 3 couples came over and feasted on some delicious food, if I do say so myself! And, of course, I had to have a pink and green table! More info to follow on this party!

I bought my first car... wow! I thought I was going to get a Volvo S60, but when I found out I could get an Audi convertible for the same price, I went for it! Muffy loves riding with the top down!

Still working on decorating the apartment. It is coming along, slowly but surely.

Football season is among us, and I have tried to make it to as many games as possible!

And that is about it! I have truly missed keeping up with you all! I will try to be better about posting :)
