December is already here and that means Christmas is right around the corner… Today I want to share a super easy ribbon wreath tutorial that I know you will love! Every year for the last 12 years, I have changed my colors simply because I like changing things up each year! It’s more of a family tradition for us and most of the time the kids make the decision on our color choice. This year was a little different, I wanted to honor my son starting junior high this year with his school colors so that’s where the red, white, and black comes in.
Easy Tutorials – Ribbon Wreath
Now….the Christmas tree on the other hand will be colors I chose last year! You will see the tree next week…it’s beautiful, but definitely not traditional! :)
In the years before this year, I usually just repurpose a garland wreath and change the decorations up to match our colors for the year. I simply purchase ornaments and ribbon that compliments the colors I have chosen for the year and hot glue the ornaments onto the wreath and make a new bow with the ribbon.
This year I wanted to change things up a bit and step outside the box with a ribbon wreath because it just sounded fun to make! This easy Christmas craft takes approximately 2 hours from start to finish, so it’s definitely a great project for the weekend! Check out the instructions for this tutorial below!
