Boy are you guys lucky! You get two tutorials in one week! I am SO excited that I have the honor of being chose to be a part of a series of tutorials hosted by “I Am Momma Hear Me Roar”. This series is pretty amazing because it is all part of an auction that will help benefit a sweet little boy named Owen! So this week not only do you get this awesome ribbon wreath tutorial I’ll give you a sneak peek of another tutorial you get…
so stay tuned! Also head over to I Am Momma Hear Me Roar this week to see the beautiful girls dress she has to auction off! It is incredible and 100% of the proceeds go to Owen! Next week my project will be auctioned off and not only do you get the beautiful tutu but you also will receive a darling onesie and cute hair bow to match!
Ok onto our tutorial! This is what your finished wreath will look like:
It’s true I take a million pictures…but I LOVE tutorials with thorough instructions, feel free to jump ahead and skip places if you feel you’ve got it!
Hot glue gun and glue
Wide Ribbon (I got mine at Costco and I am woman obsessed!)
Wreath form (I used a Styrofoam one because it’s what I had on hand, you can really use any!)
1. To get start I angled my ribbon and just put the hot glue straight onto the form. Start wrapping the ribbon around your wreath.
2. I am a glue aholic so I put a line of glue on the back of the wreath every time I wrapped my ribbon around. Make sure your ribbon is pretty snug against the wreath but not so tight that it bunches up, unless you want it to.
3. If you’re crazy like me and don’t want to pre-cut your ribbon (so you don’t waste any of that cuteness) please be aware that you will get a crazy wrapped up weird tail…you will need to work with it (or just pre-cut the stinking ribbon…)
4. Continue to wrap your ribbon around your wreath hot gluing as you go. Once you get back to where you started make sure you put plenty of glue on there to make sure it stays!

5. Take your cute flowers and cut off the very back of them at the stem using wire cutters or something similar. You can sometimes use scissors (if you want to use them to cut thick plastic or wire).
6. Take off the very back part of the flower. It’s what is usually holding it all together. If you want to replace the center you will remove that as well and add in your center of choice, like a button or a gem.
7. Take apart EVERY layer of your flower keeping it in an order that you will remember. You will then hot glue every layer so that it stays together.
This is what your finished flower will look like.
8. Repeat for every flower and lay them out so you can see how you would like to attach them to your wreath. Then glue them all on!
9. Take a step back and look at your adorable ribbon wreath! (or put it on the office chair and take a picture of it for your blog… )
I would love to see if you recreate this project! It was super easy, fast and fun to do! It is currently on the door of my little ones room, and I’m debating about adding a letter to the middle of it for a little added pizazz! If so, I will definitely add a picture! I will add the tutu tutorial later this week and if you’d rather just buy it, be sure to head over to I Am Momma Hear Me Roar next Monday and put a bid on the full outfit! The tutu will fit from 0-3 months all the way up to a slim 2T, but the onesie is make for 3/6 months!
