Beautiful Wreath

I love this idea of a ribbon wreath.. to hang inside or on the front door... I would probably make a couple in different colors for different seasons! I found this wreath on the blog The Urban Un-Martha, but it is originally off the blog The Long Thread.


  • 12″ foam wreath form
  • 24 yards 1 1/4″ black grosgrain ribbon (or less if using a wider ribbon)
  • Scissors
  • Measuring tape
How to:
To begin, cut your ribbon into 45 to 50 16-inch pieces, and one piece of 48-inch ribbon.
Tie one piece of the 16-inch ribbon in a messy knot around the wreath form by folding right over left twice, pulling in the opposite direction.
Continue this until you've tied all the small pieces of ribbon, pushing them close together in between.
The wreath should be full; if not, cut and tie more small pieces of ribbon.
Now, tie and knot the long piece of ribbon around the wreath, leave a long loop and tie another knot at the other end.
If there are any frayed edges trim them, and make sure the ribbon pieces are relatively the same length.
Hang up and Enjoy!
