Ribbon Wreath

I heart wreaths on doors. Combine wreaths and ribbons and you've made my day. So thanks clever folks at The Long Thread for this bit O' lovely:

Yup, it is in black, cause this one was made as a Halloween decoration, but you can make it in the colours of your choice. Candy-striped cheerfulness maybe or swish red and silver, or maybe even multi-coloured with random bits from your monstrous and ever growing ribbon collection. Here's what you'll need,

  • 12″ foam wreath form
  • 24 yards 1 1/4″ black grosgrain ribbon (or less if using a wider ribbon)
  • Scissors
  • Measuring tape

It's creator says that it's probably best to buy the ribbon in bulk online rather than at craft stores as you'll need rather a lot. (Which I call the perfect excuse to browser window shop)

Head on over for the rest of the tutorial, and do post pictures on their flickr pool if you make one (and Here!)  If you've never been to the Long Thread I suggest you mosey, nay, LOPE over ther. It is singularly brill.

What I particularly like about this is that you could make one for every season and holiday, you know, pink for Valentines, yellow and green for springtime, rainbowed for Pride, red white and blue for the 4h of July. (or red and white for Canada day).
