DIY: Ribbon Wreath

  Last month I saw this adorable DIY ribbon wreath on Monograms and Manicures Blog, and I could not wait to make one.  I decided to make a fall themed wreath, since that was the next season, plus I knew I could use fall colors that I could keep up from September through November. 

I went to Joann's and purchased a wreath wire and some ribbon.   Any craft store will have a variety of wreath wire sizes to choose from, depending how large you want your wreath, any size would work. 

I bought a variety of fall ribbon colors including a fall plaid, maroon, brown, orange, yellow, and green in different size ribbon widths. 

I am not sure how much ribbon I used because the ribbon I bought came in different yard lengths.  I believe I used about eight spools of ribbon.

 If you go to Joann's or Michael's you can find sale/clearance ribbon and use coupons to help cut the cost of the ribbon. 

I started cutting the ribbon in pieces approx. 5-6 inches long and then knotting the ribbon on each section of the wire.  Moving through each section and each wire ring, rotating between all of the colors. 

  I continued adding ribbon knots to each section until all parts of the wreath looked full

   It took me a little over two hours to finish.  I love that you can make one of these to fit any holiday or season, I cannot wait to make another wreath.

Final Product, Ready for Fall!
