What You’ll Need
Before we begin, let’s gather all the materials you’ll need to create your ribbon wreath:- Wreath form (foam or wire, any size)- Ribbon (in your chosen colors and patterns)- Scissors- Floral wire or hot glue gun- Decorative accents (optional)Now that you have everything, let’s start crafting!
Step 1: Prepare Your Wreath Form
First, you need to prepare your wreath form. If you are using a foam wreath form, you’ll want to wrap it with ribbon first. Start by securing the end of your ribbon onto the foam with a floral wire or hot glue gun. Then, wrap the ribbon around the form, making sure to cover it completely. Secure the other end with another floral wire or hot glue.If you are using a wire wreath form, you can skip this step.
Step 2: Cut Your Ribbon
Next, you’ll want to cut your ribbon into strips. The length of your strips will depend on the size of your wreath form, but a good rule of thumb is to make them around 8-10 inches long. You can use one color or mix and match different colors and patterns.
Step 3: Tie Your Ribbon
Now it’s time to start tying your ribbon onto the wreath form. Start by folding one ribbon strip in half and placing it under the wreath form, with the loop facing up. Bring the two ends of the ribbon over the top of the wreath form and through the loop, pulling tightly to secure.Repeat this step with your remaining ribbon strips, alternating colors and patterns as desired. Push the ribbon strips close together, so there are no gaps.
Step 4: Add Decorative Accents
Once you’ve tied all your ribbon onto the wreath, you can add decorative accents to give it some extra flair. This can be anything from a wooden monogram letter to silk flowers or even holiday ornaments.To attach your accents, use floral wire or hot glue gun and secure them to the ribbon. Be sure to place them evenly around the wreath for a balanced look.
Step 5: Hang Your Wreath
Finally, it’s time to hang your ribbon wreath! You can use a wreath hanger or a ribbon to hang it from a hook or nail. Stand back and admire your beautiful creation!
– Experiment with different ribbon patterns and colors to create a unique look that fits your style.- Use wired ribbon if you want your loops to be more structured and stay in place.- Make sure to push the ribbon strips close together to avoid any gaps in your wreath.- Use a glue gun to secure any loose ribbon or accents.- Try adding lights to your wreath to make it even more festive!
