Crafty

Those who know me know that I really want to be crafty. I see things and think "Oh, I could make that." The sad reality is that I don't have a crafty bone in my body. I try really hard, but most things come out looking like one of Diva's art projects. Mr. Mayer's default response it "Just go buy it." Grrr....that defeats the point.
Aunt Bets showed me a ribbon wreath off of Pinterest that I really liked. Again, I decided "Oh, I could make that." So I did. And.....it turned out pretty good. I did run out of the patterned ribbon and had to group 4 of the orange ribbons together. I still think it looks good. I may correct it if I ever get to Hobby Lobby for supplies.
Gather your supplies. I was using 2 different colors/patterns of ribbon.
You could use fray stop on the ribbon. I chose to use fire.


Tie ribbon around wreath in pattern of your choosing.

Viola! Ribbon wreath.

I thought the back looked pretty as well.
