christmas wreath–

I love CHRISTMAS!!!! So much! I also love not spending a lot of money or time…so I’ve got a trifecta today with this super easy wreath!  It’s so easy that your kids can totally help you whip it together!!! fun wreath with merry christmas tag Here’s what you need: a wreath form….(or you could use a pool noodle duck taped together) and grosgrain ribbon.

(i’m not sure if you can tell from this picture but this grosgrain is thick! The green and white is 2 1/4 inches thick and the Red is 3 inches thick! It makes the most amazing bows! (you can buy the smaller size…but keep in mind the stripes will be smaller!) supplies

I chose classic red green and white…but with all the fun color options…you could make one for all seasons!

I mean look at all the different shades of green there is!!! I totally wanted to do a light and dark striped green with a big red bowl! (GOT these at ribbon retreat) ribbon retreat

I just measured and cut stripes of fabric that fit all the way around….and pinned into place.since it’s going around a wreath I overlapped to make sure the wreath form is covered.

I was pinning into place to see how I liked it before i commit to hot glue…but the pins hold it really well…AND this way you could swap out colors for different holidays!
