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.
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.
Love it! So simple, too!
