How to Make a Ribbon Wrapped Wreath

| August 7, 2017

Want to bring some color to your front door at home or at your beach or lake house? We’ve put together this easy summer ribbon wrapped wreath tutorial for you to watch and copy. You can use the same color scheme we did, or even use a red white and blue theme for the fourth of July!

What you’ll Need:
  • Straw wreath in 16” inches
  • Ribbon in 2.5”
  • Scissors
  • Greening Pins
  • Flip flops
  • Mesh tubing
  • Hot glue gun
  1. Place your ribbon onto the straw wreath and secure with two greening pins
  2. Take the ribbon through the wreath and wrap around the wreath, overlapping the last piece of ribbon on the wreath by a small amount. You want to be able to see most of the pattern on your ribbon, but none of the straw wreath underneath. Any type of ribbon will work with this wreath as long as it isn’t sheer enough to show the wreath form underneath. Continue this way until the entire wreath is covered.
  3. Cut off the ribbon from the bolt and pull tightly against the wreath, and secure with greening pins.
  4. Take three kinds of ribbon and cut into strips about 20” long. Loop them and pinch so there are tails underneath the loops. Take some mesh tubing and loop a couple of times and hold with the pinched section of ribbon. Take a greening pin, slide it around the pinched ribbon and mesh tube and stick into the wreath. Repeat this a few more times. Fluff out the loops.
  5. Take your flip flops and cover the bottoms with lots of hot glue. Attach to the opposite side of the wreath and hold in place until the glue dries. Attach the second flipflop.
  6. Your summer wreath is ready to hang and enjoy!
