DIY: Big Bow Christmas Wreath

I’d never made a homemade wreath before but decided it would be a fun project to try this year.

I found the perfect color green bias tape (that was kind of more like ribbon) that I wrapped around a styrofoam wreath.

 I placed pins in the back every 3 inches or so to make sure it was all held in place and wouldn’t shift much.

Then, right at the end I ran out of the green bias tape. Ahh! Who would have thought 15 yards wasn’t enough? So I had to supplement at the very top with some satin ribbon I had that was a similar color.

Are you really surprised I stuck a huge bow on it? Come on.

I liked it so much I made a second smaller one for our front door. I had to use satin ribbon though because I was out of the other stuff. I think the bow was better on this one. As a general rule, the second bow is always better than the first.


kalani, it always stressed me out though because there are so many project I want to do. ahh!

These are so beautiful. It's so much fun to see all the little projects everyone is working on this holiday season. I'm eating it up big time every day.I'm off to my two styrofoam Christmas trees & a stack of wrapping to do — with great inspriration in hand. 🙂

just saw your link to the bow in the other comment.thanks so much!

how funny you posted this today. last night as i was in bed i thought about the panic that i left your house in and that i had forgotten to ask you about your DARLING wreath on the front door. i will be making one soon 🙂

i like the satin one as well. gotta love happy accidents.

I'm off to JoAnn's to get me some supplies! But how did you make that fantastic red bow??

I love seasonal wreaths especially ones that are not typical. I love your wreath and I am equally in love with that window's gorgeous wood trim next to it. 😉

jamie, your toilet roll one is amazing! wow, what a great idea

Kristine, oh my goodness. I actually tried making a yarn one once and gave up after about 10 minutes. you are patient!

How adorable! I like the sheen of the satin, too. Your bows look great…I always admire anyone who can make a great bow. They really stump me!
