One of my friends taught me how to make wreaths with ribbons or pieces of fabric. Ever since then, I’ve been making customized centerpieces for every season in my favorite colors with this easy technique. Unlike their floral counterparts, ribbon wreaths are truly evergreen and won’t wilt or crumble.
To make this project, you’ll need the following supplies:
Here’s the technique for making these wreaths:
2. Pull the loose ends through the looped end.
3. Tighten the ribbon on the wire frame.
4. Repeat this step many times to cover the entire frame.
5. Wrap a garland around your wreath and secure it with floral wire. Add any additional finishing touches.
6. Your wreath is finished! Hang it up and take a minute to rest on your laurels and enjoy it!
Below are few ideas for wreaths that you can still make in time for the holidays:
This project was inspired by the Nutcracker. I used short, small ribbons to fill the inner circle of the frame, longer, wider ribbons for the middle circle, and large pieces of glittery tulle for the outer circles. The materials evoke the satiny shine of ballet slippers and the flutter of the ballerinas’ tutus.
Take a jolly stroll down Candy Cane Lane with this wreath made with the classic colors of Christmas. I used ribbons of the same length for a soft, graceful effect.
