I’ve been seeing all these cute wreaths. I had no idea how to make them. I wanted to make them so badly. I went to my local craft store and bought some supplies. I wanted my new wreath to be shaped like a pendant (you know the triangle shapes that used to have high school or college football teams on them.) My thinking was a July 4th type of flag. I’m not sure if it came out as intended because my family asked if it was supposed to look like a fish. You’d think I then wouldn’t show it to you. But no I am so going to. lol Here’s the instructions for making the wreath.
First I picked out a tripod like this at my local craft store. I think it was 1.99.
Then I began weaving my burlap ribbon through it. With each one I pulled it through and tied it off at the base. I’m forever trying to use what I have so I used a lot of bread ties on this one.
Then I wove it through the entire tripod.
Next I added the mesh ribbons. I got these on sale at half off at my local craft store. That made it more affordable.
And the final product. I added blue and white bows to it. I was going for a July 4th themed wreath. Laugh if you must but I tried. It would be a cute arrow pointing to my neighbors house? LOL So tell me what you would do differently? I’m thinking if nothing else this would be cute for winter as a tree in either green or white.
If you can’t quite wrap your mind around how this was made you can check out this tutorial video below. It explains it a bit better.
