How to make a Ribbon Wreath


  • (10inch-12inch) Styrofoam wreath
  • pack straight pins
  • Scissors
  • spools of thick ribbon (4 yards each)
  • *for mine I used*
  • 2 spools of Hot Pink Ribbon
  • 2 spools of Black and White Patterned Ribbon
  • 1 spool of Glittery White Ribbon
  • 1 spool of Glittery Black Ribbon
  • 1 spool of Solid White Ribbon
  • 1 Silk Flower (Optional)


Take the solid white ribbon and wrap the styrofoam wreath, covering it completely. Next, cut the remaining ribbon into 4 inch segment. Taking one 4 inch ribbon segment at a time, loop the ribbon by placing one end the ribbon ontop of the other end of the ribbon, sort of in the shape of an “awareness ribbon”. Use 1 straight pin per ribbon loop. Place ribbon onto styrofoam wreath and secure with a pin where the ribbon crosses. Working in sections cover the wreath with and alternating ribbons. For the accent color loops around the wreath (the hot pink ones in my wreath) , take 12-14 segments of 4-inch ribbon and loop each one, into a circle. Secure each one to the wreath with a straight pin, going around the wreath, leaving about an 1 ½ inch space between each one. Cut stem from silk flower and stick into wreath.
