Inside: Adorable ribbon ideas for wreaths that you’ll love.
I have recently been looking into the many different kinds of wreaths out there. I have learned about mesh wreaths, grapevine wreaths, and my new personal favorite: Ribbon Wreaths.
Though I will admit that I am a big fan of basically any kind of wreath since they bring such a cute look and energy to your home. Regardless, this has become one of my favorites.
I was thinking about buying one for myself to add to my front door, but then I realized that I could just make one myself!

What is a Ribbon Wreath?
Great question! A ribbon wreath is pretty much exactly what it sounds like: a wreath that is decorated with ribbons. There are different kinds of ribbons that you can use, and you can choose any style or theme that suits you. Many people use ribbons as an accent or little decoration on wreaths regularly, but the difference with these is that they are made out of 90% ribbons.
There are many different ways that you can go about making your own ribbon wreath, and I will walk you through one of them later in this article. So if you are interested, stick around for that!

Cute & Simple Ribbon Wreath DIY
First things first, you are going to need to gather your supplies. I have a list below of some of the things you will need for your wreath. You can use these as a basis for gathering your own cart.
Feel free to pick whichever style of ribbons that suits you best for whatever occasion you are making this for.
Now that we have our supplies, the fun can begin. I suggest putting on a good podcast or your favorite playlist. It helps to set the perfect environment for crafting! Lay out all of your supplies, then we can get started.
For today’s craft, we are going to make a simple bow ribbon wreath. To start, measure your ribbon to the size you want your bow to be. For a medium size, about a one-foot length will do. Cut your ribbon into equal lengths until there is no more left or until you think you have enough for your wreath.
Next, we start tying!
Fasten your ribbon through the different wires in the wreath form. Then you tie the bow around the front. Use your pipe cleaner to make sure that your ribbon is secured in that spot. Continue making bows all the way around your wreath until there are no gaps showing.
You can either make your bows even, or you can use big and small bows alternately to create a more textured look with your wreath. I would recommend using smaller bows to mend any blank spots.
For the last step, you will be filling in any gaps that may be showing. Pick up your wreath and give it a gentle shake. I know this sounds odd, but it is the best way to see if there is anything that needs to be better secured on your wreath.
If you find anything that needs securing, secure it. Then you can start to add any other decorations that you may want. You can add an even bigger bow on the top, or perhaps little flowers throughout it as well. You can add whatever you like, the important thing is that you are having fun.
There you have it…you have created your very own ribbon wreath! How do you feel? I always feel so accomplished when I finish a project like this one. Not only because they look so good, but because I took the time out of my day to make it.
I hope you loved these ribbon ideas for wreaths. There are so many different things that you can do to make your own unique spin on this adorable kind of decor; you just have to get the inspiration to see it through.
