White Ribbon Wreath


I wanted a new wreath for my front door and since the holidays are over I obviously couldn't use my Burlap & Ornament Wreath any longer {it was too Christmasy}. For my newest wreath I still wanted something that reflected the winter season, but without the holiday feel. My idea was a white wreath using ribbon, with a snowflake incorporated.



What you need:

  • Wreath form
  • White fabric
  • Ribbon
  • Snowflake
  • Hot Glue Gun

Once again I recycled my old wreath like I did for my Burlap & Ornament Wreath.

The styrofoam wreath form I have is green. I knew I was going to use some white sheer ribbon and that the wreath form would be seen through it. I covered the form with white fabric, so it would blend with the ribbon.




Next I chose my ribbons. I used mostly white, with some sheer ribbon, and a little bit of silver, too.



I cut my ribbon into 7 inch strips.



I hot glued these strips in to circles.


I then attached the ribbon circles to my wreath form. When the wreath was full of ribbon, I hung a silver glitter snowflake in the center of the wreath.




I love how it turned out! It looks so pretty on our door. Now we only need snow so it will match the surrounding landscape!!

Don't forget to stop by tomorrow to see who won the $20 Michaels Gift Card!

  2. Hi Stephanie! This wreath is just beautiful. Thanks for sharing with us how you made it. I can think of so many occasions this technique could be used for just by changing the colors of the ribbon. I saw your post over at "Ivy and Elephants" blog party.
