My mom asked me to find some kind of gift that I could make for a couple of principal friends of hers. After many days of searching and lots of screenshots sent to her we found a ribbon wreath that she liked. The ribbon wreaths we saw were school colors so that is where we began.
How To Make Ribbon Wreaths
12 inch box wreath frame
8-9 rolls of ribbon
I wasn't sure how to start tying the ribbon but found a great diagram at bfranklincrafts.blogspot.com that helped a lot. The diagram is used for different fabrics and ribbons but I used the placing per the color of ribbon I was using.
Step 1: Cut ribbon into 5-7 inch pieces. I suggest you get comfy in front of a good movie and cut until you are all out of ribbon to cut. I used a plastic container to place my ribbon in case I had to stop I could just close of the ribbon without it being all over the floor.
Step 2: I used the diagram from the above site to start typing the ribbons to the wreath.
Step 3: Keep tying until you've filled up all empty spots on the wreath placing various ribbons in different places.
