Halloween Ribbon Wreath

I was looking for a cute Halloween tutorial to do this week and came across this really cool one. You can do it for any season or have one hanging year round. It is from The Long Thread blog about a year ago. Such a cute idea. Since it takes a lot of ribbon, try buying in bulk online rather than at the craft stores to make it alittle bit more inexpensive. Have fun and any finished projects, we would love to see pics!




Supplies:


12″ foam wreath form

24 yards 1 1/4″ black grosgrain ribbon (or less if using a wider ribbon)

Scissors

Measuring tape


Steps:

1. Cut 45-50 16″ pieces of ribbon.

2. Tie one strand of ribbon in a knot around the wreath. I used a “messy knot” — right over left, then right over left again, pulling in the opposite direction. It doesn’t really matter how you do it as long as you are consistent all the way around. Repeat with the knots, pushing them close together, until you fill the wreath.

3. Cut one long piece of ribbon (48″) and tie one end to form a knot. Leave a long loop for hanging and tie another knot onto the wreath.

4. Trim any frayed or long ends.
