My winter wonderland wreath
This past Christmas season, I became obsessed with ribbon wreaths. I must've made at least 10 wreaths. Sadly, I own none at this time because I gave them all away.
I decided to share my craft idea because my friends and family really enjoyed receiving these as gifts! The craft itself is extremely easy. I've never attempted to tackle a wreath project, so I know if I can do it....you can do it!
Tons of ribbon (various sizes, various patterns)
Scissors, rotary wheel
Push pins are helpful!
In effort to facilitate this project, I made a YouTube video. If you're not into videos, then just follow the below steps.
The first thing you want to do is cover your entire wreath with the widest ribbon you have. The push pins come in handy by securing the ribbon in place. Be sure to hot glue the very last piece of ribbon onto the foam.
Then you will want to glue all of your ribbon strips into loops. Once you have successfully glued all your ribbon into loops or circles, it is time to decorate!!
It doesn't matter where on the wreath you start gluing. Just add a small amount of glue on to your ribbon then press the ribbon onto the wreath. You will want to repeat this step until you have the entire front of the wreath covered.
The trick to create patterns with the ribbon. Add your ribbon at various angles to give your wreath a complete look.
Be sure to cover any large gaps with ribbon.
The estimated cost of the craft is about $10-$15 however, you can get tons of ribbon to use on more than one wreath! While making my bazillion wreaths, I swore by Michael's coupons and sales.
This craft is perfect for any holiday. You can easily make it for any and every holiday. They also make great gifts for families and people you have no idea what to give.
