How to Make a Valentine’s Day Ribbon Wreath
What you’ll need:
You can see in the above photo, that I started by taking 2 pieces of floral wire to make my heart shape. I attached them together with floral tape, but you could twist them together.
Next, I cut my ribbon into 12″ long strips. You can cut them longer, or shorter if you so desire. This length seemed to work best to tie the ribbon on, because of the type I used. If you were using regular satin ribbons, you could probably get away with cutting them shorter.
Start tying on your ribbons using a lark’s head knot. You can see in the pictures just how I did that. Start by folding your ribbon in half, then feed the loose ends through the loop around the wire and pull tight. Voila!
You can do one knot, or repeat the steps to make it a double. With tulle ribbon, I found the double knot helped keep it from coming undone. Again, it will depend on what ribbon you use.
Just continue going around the wire, until it is all covered. This is where your patience will come in handy. Turn on the TV and just get to work!
Since it is so lightweight, hanging it on the front door isn’t exactly appropriate. Not only that, but I don’t think my husband would enjoy seeing this plastered on our front door. It is just a tad kitschy to parade on the front door.
Instead, I did the next best thing–hung it on the staircase so he sees it when he first walks in!
