Do you ever catch a glimpse of a Christmas decoration that you immediately start thinking about where it would fit perfectly in your home? I sure have and in fact, this Christmas Wreath did just that. Once I saw this pretty decoration, I couldn’t take my eyes off of it! I can’t wait to make this beautiful wreath that Kim from A Girl and a Glue Gun is sharing today and to add it to my Christmas decor. This wreath is beeeeautiful and full of gorgeous ribbon and holiday cheer! Enjoy!
Hi! I’m a girl and a glue gun and I love CHRISTMAS!!!! So much! I also love not spending a lot of money or time…so I’ve got a trifecta today with this super easy wreath! It’s so easy that your kids can totally help you whip it together!!!
Here’s what you need: a wreath form….(or you could use a pool noodle duck taped together) and grosgrain ribbon.
(I’m not sure if you can tell from this picture but this grosgrain is thick! The green and white is 2 1/4 inches thick and the red is 3 inches thick! It makes the most amazing bows! (you can buy the smaller size…but keep in mind the stripes will be smaller!)
I chose classic red, green, and white…but with all the fun color options…you could make one for all seasons!
I mean look at all the different shades of green there is!!! I totally wanted to do a light and dark striped green with a big red bow!
I was pinning into place to see how I liked it before I commit to hot glue…but the pins hold it really well…AND this way you could swap out colors for different holidays!
Once you get back up to where you started it will have a gap…this is where I attached the thick red ribbon to hang the wreath!
Now you can get totally creative. Add some fun flowers from The Ribbon Retreat.
Or, whip up one of their AMAZING bows…
Or, throw on some snowflakes.
How about some giant wood tags?
So many fun ways to jazz it up!!! So get some ribbon and get crafting!
