Inside: Beautiful breast cancer wreath ideas that will show your support.
Breast cancer is one of the scariest things that women(and some men too) have to keep in mind as they get older. Whether you have had it in your family before or you go and get your yearly exam, everyone fears that it will pop up.
Certain cancers run in my family, so I am no stranger to these stresses. I have seen firsthand the turmoil that this disease can cause not only the person who suffers from it, but the family as well. It may seem hard, but boosting morale and the overall state of mind of the people in this situation can have some seriously awesome benefits when it comes to beating this cancer.
Which most people have a pretty good chance of doing. According to Cancer.net, “The 5-year relative survival rate for women in the United States with non-metastatic invasive breast cancer is 91%. The 10-year relative survival rate for women with non-metastatic invasive breast cancer is 85%.”
So for all of you fighting the big fight out there right now, or for those of you who have won…I wanted to share with you some of my favorite breast cancer wreath ideas that will boost your morale.
Breast Cancer Wreath Ideas
The breast cancer awareness movement is one that is steadily growing, and it has been since the early 2000s. This is amazing because the more people know about it, the more likely people are to get themselves checked out by a doctor. This also helps create fun raisers and grants for people who need financial help who are fighting this disease!

How To Make A Breast Cancer Wreath
Calling all crafters! Learning how to make a wreath is actually a lot easier than you may think. Today I am going to walk you through what you can do to make your own. So if you weren’t planning on buying any of the ideas above, use them as your inspiration for making your own. Let’s discuss what you are going to need to get this done.
- Cancer Ribbon Wreath Form(Or Any Wreath Form Of Your Choosing)
- Pink Mesh Ribbons(Or Any Ribbons Of Your Choosing)
- A Cute Sign
- A Breast Cancer Awareness Ribbon
- Extra Decorations
Step One: Gather Your Supplies
If you are ordering your items online, make sure you are getting a wreath form that is large enough(or small enough) for whatever your goals are. That can sometimes be tricky. I like to go down to my local craft shop and pick out everything that I am going to need for my projects.
Once you are home, lay out all of your supplies to get them ready and prepared. This will help you feel motivated to get crafting while also making your workspace tidy and organized.
Step Two: Start Tying Your Ribbons
This is a pretty simple project; so after you have done that, you can begin. I simply took my ribbon and cut it into 4-inch pieces. If you want your fray to be longer, then cut them as such.
Take your ribbon piece and tie it around the wreath form tightly. Repeat the process with the next piece of ribbon. Continue doing this until the entire wreath is covered. I like to make my wreaths look nice and full, so this process took me about an hour. I would recommend putting on a good podcast to help it not feel so repetitive.
Step Three: Decorate
Okay, now that you have your base, you can add some more decorations to help your wreath pop. This is a highly personal step that will depend on what kind of wreath style you are going for. Because of this, I won’t give you any examples. Just know that you can use pipe cleaners to tie down any signs or extra ribbons.
And there you have it! Some of the cutest cancer wreath ideas and a tutorial on how to make one yourself. I personally love the look of the wreaths that are shaped light a ribbon because it clearly states what the decor is about.
Breast cancer is not something that people take lightly. It can be such a hard process from beginning to end, so it can be nice to add a little frill and cuteness every once in a while. That is what these wreaths are about.
