Five Minute DIY Ribbon Wreath

Good Monday morning! After the July 4th, I took the star "wreath" down from the front door and needed a little something to get me through the rest of the summer. If you have been reading for a while, I usually make my own wreaths, and I like to change it up. This one is about as easy as it gets!


You all know my affinity for a black/white stripe, and this ribbon speaks to me. I picked up two rolls of this ribbon at Joann Fabrics and had about half a roll left over in my stash. There is no glue involved in this project, simply wrap and secure with pins.


This is a smaller wreath form that I also had hanging out in my basement. One roll of ribbon only covers half of this small wreath form (it's deceiving!), which is why I needed two. I secured the beginning and end of the roll with push pins. Make sure to pull and wrap the ribbon tight.


I used the extra half roll of ribbon to make a little bow. I tried adding different embellishments and color to this wreath, but decided I liked the pop of black and white against the black door. Flowers and pillows add color this time of year anyway.


Simple, easy, inexpensive….just the way I like it!! You could obviously make this with any ribbon in any color, but I think the black/white is always a classic choice! Hope you have a wonderful week! xo
