Ribbon Wreath I like the final result, but I will NEVER make this again lol. However, if you want to make it here are the instructions. Buy a wreath that can be easily covered. I bought a straw wreath, but there are also wicker ones and foam ones that will work just as well. You will need around 9yds of wide ribbon to completely wrap the wreath, secure this with hot glue. You will then need about 14 or so different colors of ribbon. Now that I have made one I will suggest you buy the stiffer ribbons, and none of the smaller widths. I used approximately 6yds per color, so say 72yds of ribbon in total. I would buy an extra spool of a few of your favorite ribbons just in case you need the extra. You will need to cut your ribbon into 4-6 inch strips. I wrapped mine around a DVD case long ways and then cut it at the ends. They will not all be the same length and that is ok, it will give the wreath some variety. You will then need to make the loops out of your ribbon. You can staple the sturdier ribbons, and hot glue the more flimsy ones. Once that is done, put them all into a box and mix them up. Now you are ready to hot glue, or pin these ribbons into place. I used both, it will take several packs of strait pins to finish this, or about half a big pack of hot glue sticks. Either one that you chose, get a cheap plastic thimble to put on your fingers to avoid being stuck/burnt. <--- Best advice I ever got!!! Glue/pin the ribbons on in random angles so that the wreath will be nice and full. I only did the outside and front, but you could do it all the way around if you like. The B in the middle is just an ornament I had and decided to put it in there, I secured it with ribbon to the wreath before I attached the loops. Be prepared to spend quality time with this project lol.
