Mini wreaths are my favorite way to decorate … Love to make them in pairs at least!
All you need is mini wreath and rope, ribbon or yarn to start. You can also use branches or raffia. I am going to use rope. Start with a dot of hot glue to secure your rope and wrap your circle around. It doesn’t take long at all.
There are so many ways to decorate our mini wreath. You could use groupings of little seasonal items like acorns, cones or even pumpkins but I am going to keep mine plain and decorate it with just a bow! I LOVE BOWS!! Always did… my daughter always had one in her hair!
Double tied bow is the one I always do but I need it a bit more for what I had in mind so I decided to make a bigger bow!
Just because I have so many scraps of ribbon that it is so scary so I decided to use it all or at least most of it…. so lets make my favorite MESSY BOW!!
Cute Messy Bow!
There is really no rules how many pieces you need to use …I would say use at least 3 or 4 if scraps are on the longer side but if they are short you can use even more!
- organize your ribbon. I love to mix texture and width
- Loop your ribbon …It looks really messy but it is ok
- Fold all in half and find the middle
- Secure tight middle of our ribbon “mess” …ha ha …with thin wire
- you can add a bead or 2
- Cut ends of your loop
and you are done!
now it is time to trim ends nicely and attach it to our mini wreath! Not much wasted material and that is what I like !
So what do you think? Easy right? Hope that you enjoyed my mini wreath project with my messy bow
