I have loved making the mesh wreaths and recently saw some of these ribbon wreaths in the craft store. I looked over the ribbon wreaths and decided that they would be that hard to make on my own. I came home and did a little research on internet and found a great you tube video on how to make your own ribbon wreath. I did slightly alter my wreath and choose not to add the tail of ribbons at the bottom. The video will give you a great start to making you own ribbon wreath and you can decide how you want to alter your own.
for my ribbon wreath I used:
medium size metal wreath frame
5 rolls of ribbon that were 15 feet long each (you will need 30 feet if you add the tail)
approx. 30 zip ties
First your will stack you ribbon choices on top of each other and roll together into one large ribbon roll.
You will pinch the ribbons together and attach the ends of the ribbon to the wire wreath from using a zip tie.
You will use the width of your hand to measure each loop of ribbon and then attach each loop using a zip tie to the wire wreath form. The wreath form has 4-6 sections marked depending on the size of form. Each section should hold 7-8 ribbon loops. you will loop and zip tie the ribbon until the wreath form is full. After the form is full you will make sure each zip tie is tight and clip the excess plastic off of the zip ties.
At this point your will filp your wreath over and pull and fluff the ribbons out until you get your desired look.
