"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 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!

  1. Amber, you are such a good writer! I've been laughing out loud as I read these posts ("Snowmagedon" is too funny and about right)! I decided to just write a post on how to make a header on my blog (bc a few other people have asked too), so hopefully it answers some of your questions. As far as a background, I only know how to do the pre-made templates as well... hence, I don't have a background at all, ha (But I actually really like the ribbon one!). But please let me know any other questions you have! Secondly, you for real need to post ALL your craft projects bc I really want to see them! Hopefully, we can have another snow day so you can make more stuff to post :)
