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...

Supplies:

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

Steps:

  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!

I so need a house so I have a place to put a ribbon wreath. 1BR apartments just don't have enough room!

That wreath looks like so much fun! I may seriously have to make one of them.

I made that last year (for Christmas) using green and red ribbon and it came out SO cute! Considering the fact that I am NOT crafty, I was pretty proud of myself!!

I want to make a few more for other holidays!

I love it!! I went to Michael's today and bought the stuff to make it- got orange, brown, hot pink, and leopard! Just FYI that 4yd rolls of ribbon are on sale there for 2/$5 instead of 3.99 each. I'm super excited to make mine tomorrow!
