Ribbon Wreath~DIY

DIY: Ribbon Wreath Materials Needed: Styrofoam wreath, any size. (I used a small wreath so it would fit on my office door) Multiple patterns of Ribbon. I used a mixture of ribbon with and without wire. However, I thought the wire ribbon worked better to shape once the wreath was completed.

Step1) Determine the length of ribbon you will need by wrapping one piece for your pattern.

Step2) Cut all your ribbon the same length. I used about 17" long pieces for my wreath.

Step3) Tie ribbon onto the wreath, double knotting, and leaving the knots on the outside of the wreath.
The ribbons will slightly overlap so that the knots are next to each other and cover the wreath.

Alternate patterns around the wreath.


Step 4) Once the wreath is completely covered, trim the ribbon so that the pieces are all about the same length.

My finished wreath hanging on my office door.
I always like to give an approx cost breakdown. I spent $ 5 on the wreath and around $10 on the ribbon. I used some tulle that I already had and had some ribbon left over.
