Once I had a substantial amount of ribbons pre-cut, it was time to start tying them to the wreath base.
All I did is double knot the ribbons and go on to the next one...
Keep adding and tying and trimming ribbons, filing up your wire wreath and filling in bare spots.
When you are done you will have a complete wreath made of ribbons!
I did not heat seal the ends, because I wanted the frayed look.
You can seal them, however, if you choose to.
When I was done, I wanted to add the sign
I used a wooden plaque that I have had stashed away for YEARS.
I added some foam thickers, buttons, a rose and some twin to it to spruce it up a bit.
Now, it hangs proudly on the door to my daughters' bedroom!
Some of the ribbons I used in this wreath are:
I am sure there are many other sizes, styles, and patterns...but you get the idea.
I just used a bunch of ribbon scraps and created a gorgeous decoration for my home!
Thanks for visiting us!
Have a great day!
