How to make a ribbon wreath – materials
I love a Christmas craft that just has a few easy materials. For this ribbon wreath all you will need is:
- A wooden wreath frame
- Red ribbon
- Green ribbon
- Silver ribbon
Firstly, cut your ribbon into 11 cm lengths. For the wreath we made, we needed 40 strips of red ribbon, 40 strips of green ribbon and 40 strips of silver ribbon.
Take one piece of ribbon and tie it around your wooden wreath. After tying, straighten the lengths so they face outwards around the wreath.
Continue adding red ribbons until you have filled the wreath, which in my case was approximately 40 ribbons.
Repeat this process with the green ribbon. Add the green ribbons so that the red and green colors alternate evenly.
Continue until you have filled the wreath. Your ribbon wreath should be looking quite full now!
Now it is time to add your silver ribbon. My silver ribbon was thicker than I wanted it, so I cut each length into slightly narrower pieces.
Begin to add the silver ribbon, tying in exactly the same way as before.
Continue until you have tied on silver ribbons at regular intervals around the wreath.
Now it is time to add a hanger. Take one piece of ribbon and fold it in half. Loop it around your wreath and pull the ends through the loop to secure in place.
Next add a bow to the front of the hanger. I added a silver card button as well.
Now your Christmas ribbon wreath is finished. Hang it on your front door, wall or anywhere you want to add a little extra Christmas cheer.
