I really like the look of the yarn wreaths, and I’ve made a few…..but I also LOVE stripes. So, I wondered what would happen if I made a wreath with striped ribbon instead of yarn.
This is what would happen!
I love it. I made this one for my mother-in-law, so now I need to go back to the Hob Lob and get more supplies to make my own!
What you need:
a few spools of ribbon (I needed three for mine)
felt or flowers
What you do:
I used a straw wreath and left the plastic on. I like that the wreaths end up looking thicker when I use a straw form than when I use foam wreath forms.
I wrapped it with two inch ribbon – which took only about 10 minutes as opposed to the hours and hours of yarn wrapping!!! Hooray!
I hot glued the ends of the ribbon to the wreath as each spool was used up.
I cut circles out of some felt and made the flowers. There are all kind of cute ways to make felt flowers. For this one I tried a couple out. I added a little bling to a few.
Done and done.
