Christmas Decorations: Ribbon Wreath


I have metres and metres of ribbon in my house which are mainly used for tying up cake boxes or presentation bags.  Occasionally Eadie will get hold of one piece and run through the house before tying herself up in it in the bedroom...


So I had to relocate all the random spools and tiny bags of the stuff into a box.  And, much like shoes, I didn’t realise I had a problem until they were all in one place.  There was a lot of ribbon there… A lot…

Luckily, I found this really cute idea for using it up.  All I had to buy was a Styrofoam ring and some dress pins which I picked up in Hobbycraft.  I also bought the pretty red heart ribbon too.  I’m my own worse ribbon enemy.  I found that if you have little gaps then cut a shorter piece of ribbon and weave the pin through twice rather than once before stabbing it into the Styrofoam, it fills the gap better.  It’s strangely satisfying!  Also, if you don’t have that much ribbon, cut the loops shorter so it fills out quicker.
