{Halloween} Spooky Wreath

Pin It

I started thinking…almost all of the projects I do have two things in common: polka dots and ribbon.  I’m a huge fan of both.  Any kind of polka dot.  And polka dot ribbon?  looooooooove it! I have a nice little collection of the polka dot ribbon kind.  And good thing, too, cause I used a bunch of it for this project.

I saw this wreath last year and knew I wanted to make one.  I picked about 10 different ribbons (maybe more?) in different sizes to start and cut them in about 4.5″ pieces.  Basically I followed her tutorial.  I wrapped my wreath with black grosgrain ribbon to start.  (I prefer to use grosgrain when I can)  My black ribbon was 1.5″ grosgrain, so it took a pretty good amount to wrap the wreath.  Then I set to sewing ribbon loops.  A ton of them.  But it really did pay off because I had plenty of loops to cover the wreath and make it nice and full.  I used my glue gun to attach the loop seams to the wreath.

Mine is already on the door.  I didn’t do the glittery numbers or ribbon hang.  Just simple. Well, fluffy cute and simple.
