Ruffled Ribbon Wreath

Every holiday needs a gorgeous and festive wreath welcoming your holiday crowd to all of your parties and fun! And, wreaths are just the thing to take on that job of welcoming all to your festivities and a great decoration that can be unique and one of a kind. Today, Cherie is sharing a gorgeous Valentine’s Day ribbon wreath that is full of holiday cheer, eye catching ribbon and fabulous flowers all with a rustic and shabby chic feel. Enjoy!

Today I’m going to show you how to make this Shabby Chic Valentine’s Day wreath.  This wreath only has a couple steps to it, but it’s unique and fun.

Supplies Needed:

  • Wreath Form (I used a 15″)
  • About 5 Yards 3″ Ribbon (I used Taupe)
  • Scissors
  • Glue Gun
  • Sewing Machine

Taupe Chevron Hearts
White Burlap Shocking Pink Burlap Red Burlap

I wanted the ribbon to be rustic and not perfect, so I cut the edge off of both sides of the ribbon and burnt the edges. This step is optional.

I liked using a tea light for this project so I could use both hands and quickly glide the ribbon through the flame.

When you burn the edges a lot the ribbon starts to ruffle a bit.

I wanted the ribbon to have more ruffles than just burning it alone, so I ran a gathering stitch down the middle of the ribbon.  To do a gathering stitch you simply set the tension on your sewing machine as high as it can go and use the longest stitch length.  EASY.  This stitch took all of 30 seconds! (Petal to the metal baby!)

Next just wrap the ribbon around the wreath and glue it down as you go.  It doesn’t have to be perfect, just try not to let the wreath form show through.

When it is all wrapped it will look something like this.  Now you have a blank canvas for anything you could want to do.

I decided I wanted this wreath to be simple and understated, these cute Burlap Flowers were just the right touch!

I hung it up with some cute heart ribbon and made a simple bow for the finishing touch.  I love sparkle bling and things larger than life, but I also love to change it up to simple, classic, and a tad rustic from time to time!
This was fun and easy to make, and I love that the possibilities are endless with this wreath!


Thank you Cherie for such a fun wreath! I love your burnt ruffled ribbon and those stunning flowers! Your colors are gorgeous and this eye catching wreath would be fabulous for any holiday or for every day decor too!

Wreaths are such a great way to decorate inside your home or out. I love big, fancy wreaths on front doors and inside on mirrors, walls or even being hung from a wreath hanger. However, wreaths are displayed…they are simply gorgeous and an easy way to add color or texture to your home. Here are a few more wreaths that are inspired by your favorite holiday or everyday decorating style…

    Oh, the wreath is beautiful, Cherie! I love the brownish taupe… reminds me of Valentine’s Day chocolates!! And thanks for the tea light tip. In similar situations (rare that it is when I find myself in one! hehe), I have used a votive candle in an appropriate-sized holder and found that the wax melted so quickly that the flame went quickly below the rim of the holder, and I was, well, stuck.: ( But tea lights are so shallow that they’re perfect! xoxo

    Wow, This wreath looks awesome. Is it possible to add character A in the middle of it as I plan to make one like this for my girlfriend on this valentines day. I have already ordered deco meshes from Papermart. But the problem is I do not know how to add character A (the starting character of her name) into it. Can you help me with this?

      Hi Mauro! Thank you so much! Yes, you could add anything you would like to this fun wreath. I think the letter A would look amazing! I think you could easily attach ribbon to your letter and hang it from the top of your wreath. It would look awesome. Good luck and have a wonderful day! Michelle 🙂

    Happy Valentine’s Day!
