DIY Ribbon Wreath

FallFinished

Recently, while browsing Etsy I came across some adorable ribbon wreaths.  I decided to make my own and then because it was pretty easy, I made one for a coworker who is obsessed a fan of the HOGS.

Just a warning that my pictures may be a bit jumbled with the directions – I forgot to take a few photos while doing my first wreath.

measuring

1) cut ribbon into about 4 1/2″ – 5″ pieces.  I used several different designs on my wreaths.

2) loop the ribbon and stick a straight pin through, like so.

3) start sticking on.  Continue until all the foam is covered.  My wreath was quite a bit smaller than my coworkers.  I used about 22 yards of ribbon and about 200 pins.  On the HOGS wreath I used 36 yards and about 350 straight pins.

4) after you have the wreath to your desire amount of fullness, then hot glue letters on.  I went with a fall theme for mine since I just can’t wait for the season to change.
