So with that being said I wanted to do a tutorial to help you all make a beautiful ribbon wreath. So lets get started.
You will need:
10 yards of pretty ribbon different widths most of mine are 7/8 with a few 1in. and 3/8 thrown in
if you just have a bin of scraps you could use that too there is no need to buy a ton of new ribbon if you have a ton of scraps
1 spool of 2in plain ribbon
glue gun (I like the multi temp glue gun for this because the cool setting works best)
glue sticks ( if you have the multi temp glue gun just make sure you have multi temp sticks)
12in wreath. You can use a Styrofoam wreath or you can use one of the straw wreaths
( straw wreaths are allot cheaper and both use the same amount of ribbon )
Be prepared for a crazy amount of pics :)
So to start I got all my matching ribbon out
and picked a few that I wanted to use, I like using allot of different ribbon so I used about 10 different designs 1 yard of each
Cut all your ribbon into 4in lengths
Once all your ribbon is cut put aside and grab your wreath
Here are the 2 different type of wreaths I was talking about. In this tutorial I used the Styrofoam wreath. I will show you other pics after the tutorial and for all of those I used the straw wreaths.
Now with the plain ribbon I take my wreath and cover it. I just thinks it looks better and it gets less damaged if its styrofoam and if its the straw wreath it lays better on the wall.
Then just start wrapping
Now with the wreath wrapped I just start putting my ribbon on according to ribbon pattern that way you can separate the patterns and make sure all spaces are getting filled.
Once all ribbons are added I just added my bells underneath
Next I added my ribbon hanger for the back. I covered it with a slip of the left over ribbon used for covering the wreath just so it looks nice.
Now that its done you can decorate it anyway you want! I put a bow made out of a different 2in ribbon on this one and some bells I got from the dollar store.
Well I hope you liked my wreaths and if you have any questions at all please feel free to ask I will answer best as I can :) I have never done a tutorial before so I hope it helps you all make some amazing wreaths! Please if you make one send me a pic I will post on my blog for all to see, I would love to see what everyone creates!!!!
Have a great Holiday Season if I don't talk to you all before Christmas. Thanks for spending time with me,
