I have been a little obsessed with making wreaths lately. I made all of these in the past few months (and many more!) I have used ribbon, fabric, paper, raffia, greenery, silk flowers, pages of a music book...and I have attached them to wire floral wreath forms, styrofoam wreaths, grapevine wreaths, embroidery hoops, straw wreaths, and evergreen wreaths! I've done some traditional and some a little more...
well, shall we just say, different.
I have really tried to be thinking "outside of the box" with my wreath projects!
This is a wreath I recently made for a 3 year old girl for her birthday!
Materials I used...
-green wire wreath
-purple sparkly tulle
-6 different types of ribbon, all either purple or with purple in them
*NOTE: This takes a lot of tulle and a lot of ribbon. Sorry I can't tell you exactly how much tulle I used, but I used 6 different types of ribbon with 15 feet per spool so that's 90 feet of ribbon. You can use more or less, whatever strikes your fancy!
How I did it...
I started with a green wire wreath that I purchased at Hobby Lobby in the floral department. It cost $2.47.
This is some of the tulle and ribbon I used. Hobby Lobby - 50% off!
I continued it all the way around the wreath form.
When I finished, I hung it up and used scissors to trim any uneven strips of tulle from around the outside.
I really like how it turned out. I had never made a purple tulle wreath before and it was fun to see it come together with all the different types of ribbon I chose. The sparkly purple tulle was a bit messy to work with but really added some shine to the wreath. My own three-year-old LOVED it!
