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.
