I made myself a wreath! It cost about $8 and took 20 minutes.
- Foam crafting wreath. I bought this wreath at Walmart for $4.50.
- 15 ft of thick ribbon. I used this and got it at Walmart. If you use sparkly ribbon, make sure you have a good vacuum or a space that can get glittery. I have glitter e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e.
- Hot glue and hot glue gun
- Hot glue the end of the ribbon to the wreath. I glued the ribbon at a slight angle.
- Wrap the ribbon around the wreath, keeping the ribbon fairly tight. I lined up sequin edge to sequin edge.
- When the wreath is completely wrapped, cut the ribbon from the roll and hot glue the end to the wreath.
- The easy part is done and the wreath should look like this:
- Now make the bow. Since the ribbon I used was so thick and had wire on each side, making the bow was a bit of a challenge. I didn’t tie a bow, instead I faked a bow by working with three pieces.
Cut two pieces of ribbon that were about 8″ long. Then, hot glue the ends together to form a loop.
- Pinch the loops and place one loop on top of the other so they look like a bow.
- Cut another piece of ribbon, about 5″ long. Fold the ribbon so that it’s not as thick. I folded the sequins inward so that they wouldn’t show. This piece of ribbon will hold the two loops together.
- Wrap the 5″ piece around the center of the two loops. Hot glue the end of the 5″ piece so that it stays in place.
- Pinch and adjust the loops until it looks like a bow.
- Now take the remainder of the ribbon and cut it in half, into two equal pieces. Cut the ends so they have a “v” shape at the end.
- Glue each piece to the wreath with one piece overlapping the other and the cut ends out.
- Glue the bow to the top of the two pieces of ribbon.
- Hang and enjoy!
