When it comes to trying out any creative craft project, there is no better option than buying discount ribbons from the right place. A ribbon wreath is a warm way to welcome guests and family members into your home, and it can be a lovely gift as well. Traditionally, wreaths are used for Christmas decorations but now it is a great way to celebrate fall, spring, and even summers.
Let’s take a look at quick and easy steps to create a wreath using neutral cheap ribbons for holiday or winter decorations.
- Foam wreath form (14”, 16”, 18”)
- Approximately 5 cheap ribbon by the yard in contrasting colors. (We’ve used 2" taupe and 5/8" gold)
- A pair of scissors
- Hot glue gun
- Artificial flowers & leaves
- Glue dots
Step 1: Attach the Ribbon Accent
Place the base ribbon (2”) on the flat surface. You can either lay it on the table or floor whichever works best for you. Now use scissors to cut five yards of a base ribbon and accent ribbon. Now it’s time to line up your accent ribbon (5/8") in the center of a base ribbon. Apply a hot glue gun to secure both the ribbons together.
Step 2: Wrap Ribbon on Wreath
Hold the front and backside of your wreath form. Now start pasting glue dot to the form and attach the ribbon at the top of its backside. Then turn the wreath form and add another glue dot to secure the ribbon down. Keep wrapping the ribbon around the wreath until you run out of your ribbon.
Step 3: Add the Flowers
Take at least two or three artificial flowers and position them on the wreath before applying glue on them. Once you’ve decided where to place them, you can paste them carefully onto the wreath form.
Step 4: Attach Foliage
Take some leaves and position them properly around the artificial flowers to fill in the gaps or hide your imperfections. Use hot-glue to stick them in place. Once you’re done, all you need to do is to decide the door you can hang it on.
If you’re feeling creative, consider taking a discount ribbon by the spool and add some decorative items like jingle bells, tiny ornaments, snowdrops, or anything on your wreath to make it occasion appropriate.
