Ahhhh wreaths. I love them. I have to have something on my front door at all times. I try to have something on our door for every holiday. This DIY wreath is my favorite to make because it’s A. so easy & B. so inexpensive. It’s almost Easter so I decided to make one with pretty Spring colors.
Ribbon. & a lot of it. I get my ribbon at Hobby Lobby when they have 50% off. I like my wreath to have lots of different types & widths of ribbon. Nothing too matchy matchy. I bought 10 spools of it & used 7. I picked bright colors so that you can see it from our street.
Scissors. Or pinking shears. It’s your choice.
Wire wreath form. I use a 12″ size, but the size is really up to you. Hobby Lobby has these for $2.75.
The first step is to cut your ribbon. I cut as much as possible so that I won’t have to keep stopping to cut more. I measure it out at about 5-6″.
Cut cut cut cut as much as your hand will allow you to. This is a excellent “while the kids are napping” craft, by the way. Put on some jazz & cut some ribbon. I put mine in a Tupperware container so that in case I get interrupted, I can put a lid on it & not have ribbon all over my house.
Ok here comes the time consuming part: tying all of the ribbon on. There is no need to make a double knot. A single tie will do. There is no method to tying it or where to tie it. Make it as random as possible. Just try to not have too much of the same ribbon clumped together.
You might want to make yourself comfortable on the couch to tie all of the ribbon on. It takes awhile. About an hour. Just randomly tie it on, wherever there is a space. Try to fill in as much as possible. Leave a small space somewhere along the top for ribbon to hang it.
That’s it! Hang it on your door & enjoy it. Altogether I spent $15 making this. I wouldn’t have spent so much had I had more ribbon at home. There you have it! A super cute project you can make year round.
