Valentine Ribbon Wreath

I have a confession to make.
I hate winter.
Once Christmas and New Year’s are past, I’m so not interested in the season anymore.  I’ve lived in the northeast too long to enjoy snow; it just means I have to shovel and it ruins my plans.
I absolutely hate being cold, and I’d rather wear a tank top and flip flops than a heavy coat anyday.
Soooo, to help me get through January and February, I decided to make something fun and festive for on the door.  Something with lots of color and, of course, glitter!Enter my new Valentine Ribbon Wreath!


Pin It
Last fall, I made my first door decoration, this fabric flower wreath.  I didn’t have the patience to yarn-wrap it, so I used wide brown ribbon, and I really liked the effect.

I wanted to do something similar, but with pinks and reds for Valentine’s day.  Then, I saw this loopy ribbon wreath by Mel the Crafty Scientist.  I thought it was super-fun looking and I loved the effect of the different ribbons all together.

Sooooo, I grabbed the Michael’s gift card I got for my birthday, and started browsing for fun coordinating ribbons.  I decided I’d do a combination of my original ribbon wrap idea and Mel’s idea.  Here’s what you need to makd one too:
wooden wreath form
painted wooden heart {or you can get one and paint it yourself}
assorted ribbon {I had 5 different types; 3 pinks and 2 reds in varying widths}
low temp hot glue gun and glue sticks

STEP 1: Cut ribbon into strips that will fit around your wreath form.  I cut 12 of each color.

STEP 2: Begin wrapping ribbon around the form one strip at a time and hot glue in place.  Try to alternate colors and widths.


STEP 3: Continue around wreath form until it’s completely covered.  The trickiest part is that as you go around, you have to adjust and overlap them so they go around the circle.  I found the skinny light pink ribbon to be really good in those spots where I was trying to even up.

I had absolutely no pattern, just tried to keep a good variety as I went around.  You can create any kind of pattern you want, or make it random.

STEP 4: Glue wooden heart to one side of your wreath.

That’s all there is to it!
 The only thing left to do is hang and enjoy!
Happy Crafting, friends!
