Ribbon Wreath { a Tutorial }

ribbon wreath tutorial

Today I am going to show you how to create a wreath that is so easy and one that Bonnie and I have been making for a few years now.  This design has become a classic of ours and we thought it was time to share it with you!

Ribbon Wreath Tutorial  

Ribbon Wreath


18 inch wire wreath form
48 yards of ribbon
coordinating tulle

Step one.  The first thing you will do is to cut your ribbon into 24″ lengths.  You will take a piece of ribbon, weave it between the two bottom spokes of the wreath form, make bunny ears, then tie like you would a bow.

Step Two.  Now you will repeat step one with the ribbon weaving through the top two spokes, making the bunny ears, and tying a bow.  Then start the process all over again going from top to bottom.

Step Three.  Work your way around the entire wreath form.  You will use eight lengths of ribbon for each section.

Step four.  This is what your wreath will look like once you have the ribbon all around it.  Now we need to add a little tulle and do a little froof-ing!  To add the tulle you will simply tie about an 8 inch section of tulle around one of the wires and fluff it out.  That is it!

These ribbon wreaths are just so easy and really make a statement!  With all of the ribbon patterns and colors out there… the possibilities are endless!  Have fun with it!

    Did this really take 48 yards of ribbon?? I can’t find a store that carries that much of the same kind (or even half that much).

  29. How much ribbon would you use for a smaller wreath?

  30. Saw this on Pinterest. Absolutely love the color choice and design.

  31. Jacqueline says:

    I really love this wreath! I want to try to make it. I am not crafty whatsoever, so excuse me if this is a silly question but did you use wired ribbon? And how thick was your ribbon? Thanks for your help and easy instructions!!! :)
