"Feeling a Little Loopy!": Ribbon Wreaths
So enough about my snow day insanity.. how about some crafts!
I really love these things and making theme is quite addictive. I have a feeling before long I will have one, in every color scheme, in every room of the house. My snow-day-craft-day-teacher-buddy, Liz, shared this wonderful idea!
Sadly, we cannot take credit. We must hand over the I'm-The-Craftiest-Person-Ever-Because-I-Came-Up-With-This-Idea flag to our friends at About.com. Check out this link for the How To's & What For's: Ribbon Wreath How To's
I must say, though, thank goodness this ribbon wreath idea came my way around Christmas time. Hello Hobby Lobby 40% off Christmas ornaments! I like to think I gave this craft my own spin by adding the embellishment in the center.
I have also found that using a variety of widths of ribbon works well. I feel like it makes it a bit more interesting.
I will say that it looks quite sad when you first begin... 10 little loops of ribbon on this styrofoam wreath.. but keep at it! It's totally worth the work!
