This really is the easiest wreath you will ever make.  It is low cost and looks great when complete.  You can pick your color scheme and fabric so that it would fit into any decor scheme. To create your own all that you will need is:

  • Scissors
  • A metal wreath frame which can be found in most craft stores ($2-$5)
  • A good amount of scrap fabric or ribbon

Cut the fabric or ribbon into 10″ strips that are 1″-3″ wide.

Once you have your fabric and ribbon organized begin tying the pieces to outside wires of the wreath form using simple square knots.

Once you have completed the outside wire of the wreath form you repeat the same step on the inside wires.

Cover all of the inside wires and then add additional strips of fabric to any portion of the wire that is still showing.

Voila!  Your wreath is complete!

The film flower is perfect for a photographer and the guitar would be great for the music lover and party horns (what!?! – we love this) would be pure perfection for a New Years Eve wedding! Other cool ideas were wheat, pinwheels, cotton, shells and one that even looks like an award ribbon (appropriate for most grooms we think!)
