Wreath Tutorial a diversion from paper flowers !

A gorgeous wreath tutorial that can be made with no messes!
Quite a diversion from my paper flowers.Using just a few leftover ribbons you can recreate this wreath at home.Change colors to suit the season,best of all NO gluing!

Season 1 Winter - A Peace Wreath.

I hate cutting ribbon and using glue..I LOVE to reuse my ribbons and the wreath form so it was quite a challenge to get some beautiful without cutting and pasting:-)

My aim was to use what was on hand some ribbon leftovers and the foam wreath.No buying anything.I wanted to use NO Glue as I want to reuse the wreath base again to transform it according to the New England seasons :-) Each season I am going to transform the same base to something new.I love challenges :-)

Materials needed:
1.Wreath form base
3.Left over ribbons
4.Peace Sign (mine is a ornament made by my kindergarden son at school :-))

2.Take the widest ribbon and fold the ribbon into equal half.Pin the center onto the wreath base.(no glue:-) of course if you want to use glue go ahead:-))
3.Turn over the wreath base and bring up both ends of ribbon to cross over each other.

4.Cross over the ribbons again as in step 4 to form a knotted design.
5.Take ends to the back of the wreath and cross over at the back to bring up again.
6.Repeat again to cover till your finish 3/4 of the wreath.

7. Step seven shows how your back will look like once done.
8. I hate trimming ribbon.:-) So I folded over the rest (there was not much left as it was a left over bit) and pinned it to the back.

10. Pin the next ribbon end onto the back of the form.Keep wrapping till you finish the wreath.Secure the end with a pin again making sure all pins are at the back.
11.Thread a pin through the back of the peace sign and secure the pin in the wreath base tilted to one side.

You are done.Time taken less than 10 minutes,cost zero.
