Holiday Ribbon Wreath Tutorial

Materials Needed:

* 21cm (8 inch) diameter polystyrene ring
* Scissors
* Small Metal Pins
* 12 yards of 1 1/2″ Green Wired Polka Dot Ribbon
* 12 yards of 1 1/2″ Red Wired Polka Dot Ribbon

To make this cute wreath, follow these simple instructions.

Ribbon Wreath Tutorial

1. Cut a 70cm (2ft) length of ribbon.

2. Tie a bow to the polystyrene ring in alternating colors. I used 2 different colors, but you could use three colors or other shades of the same color.

3. Fold the excess ribbon “tails” behind the ring and secure in place with a metal pin. This will ensure the insides of the ring are covered.

4. Shape each ribbon loop into a circle with your fingers and you’re done!

Use the wreath on a decorative mantel or hang from your front door!

Ribbon Wreath for all occasions

The beauty of this project is that it’s easy, quick to make and you could change the
ribbons on the same wreath to suit other Holidays and occasions!

    Hi love this wreath! When you say a 70cm length of ribbon is this the length for each bow?
    Thanks x

    i can’t figure out how you tie the bow on the wreath and then wrap it. Can you explain a little better about how to tie the bow on the wreath?

      Hi Melissa! Thank you for your question. I think Bird simply wrapped the ribbon around the wreath form, followed by tying a basic bow in the ribbon. She then pinned the tails of the bow to the back of the wreath form and then formed the bow loops into as big of loops as she could. I hope this helps. This wreath is so cute and so great for all year long. Good luck Melissa and have a great day! Michelle 🙂
