Many, many months ago, I found this ribbon wreath on
I instantly fell in love with it! It absolutely LOVE all the colors and the polka-dots! It's exactly my style!
She has them for sale, but I thought I would try my hand at making one myself.
A couple of months after finding the photo, I bought some ribbon. Then a little later, I bought more ribbon. Then even later, more ribbon. I wanted to make sure I had enough ribbon.
A few weeks after I bought the ribbon, I cut all the rolls into 4 inch strips. I put all the strips of ribbon into a bag, and that's as far as I've gotten....until today.
Jameson was playing at a friend's house, and Marty was busy doing other things, so I decided to break out all of my supplies and see if I could get something accomplished around here.
I started by hot gluing all of my ribbon strips into loops.
(I lost the cord to my high-temp hot glue gun, so I had to use my el-cheapo glue gun...lol)
LOTS and LOTS of loops!
Then I got out my Styrofoam wreath. I bought it at Hobby Lobby when it was 50% off. You can use any kind of wreaths you like!
Then I started wrapping the wreath with ribbon. I would probably use a solid color, but this was the only one that I had more than one spool of.
AND, I still ended up a little bit short...lol. No worries though, it will be covered up by the hanging ribbon.
Here is my first row of ribbons. Since I only had a low-melt glue gun and I am planning on hanging this on the front door, I used straight pins to attach my loops. If you use a different type of wreath form, hot glue will work well, too.
After about 2 hours (it seemed like) of pinning loops.
And here is the completed wreath, hanging on my front door!
I love it! I think I may still add a few little details later, but for now, I think it is perfect!
