I call this a "Halloween Ribbon Wreath" but that's just because I made it for Halloween. Using different ribbons would make it a fit for any holiday or decor! Which is why I love it so. And "easy" doesn't even BEGIN to describe the level of difficulty here. Can you cut ribbon? Can you tie a knot? This wreath is for you!
- A variety of ribbon from your ribbon stash or purchased at 50% off at Hobby Lobby (I swear it's 50% off every other week). Different widths, patterns, textures are the best. The more variety the better!
- A straw wreath
STEP ONE: Wrap your straw wreath one of your selected ribbons. I chose solid black. This keeps the straw from ruining all your fun with the inevitable "peek through."
STEP TWO: Cut pieces of ribbon and tie around wreath using your basic square knot! I started with my wide ribbons first and then went back and filled in with the thinner ones.
STEP THREE: Optional but I think it made a big difference... cut the ends of all your ribbons in a V. This definitely gave it a more finished and festive look.
STEP FOUR: Fluff and froof until you get it how you want it and hang it up!
Can't you see this as a fun birthday wreath (not to upstage THIS ONE though!) or Christmas or Easter or, or, or.... you see where I'm going with this. But I will say I am loving it in the orange and black! Halloween decor makes me happy.
