I love a good Google image search. I wanted to make a wreath for my front door but wasn't sure where to start. That's where my good friend Google comes in. If you haven't tried an image search yet then you are truly missing out. Here's the link: Google. Just type in whatever you are looking for and a picture will come back. I think it's most popular first and so on.
I looked through pages of wreaths before I settled on the simple bow method. I found this tutorial at Home By Sunset. The directions are pretty simple. Use a wire ring or convert an old hanger (as I did) and start tying bows. I got these two huge spools (50 yards)of ribbon at Costco a couple months ago.
There are 26 bows in each color. It took me roughly 2 hrs to complete. I did have a few interruptions as I do have 4 year old twin boys at home with me. Oh, how I wish they knew how to tie bows (or their shoes).
In retrospect I would have lined the hanger with florist tape because the flowers do flip slightly when not on a hard surface (like the door). Overall, I am super happy with the wreath. It brightens my day when I drive up to the house and I see it. I will be doing another ribbon type wreath for Easter. I got a super deal on yellow ribbon at Menards after Christmas sale. Yes, Menards!
