How to make a ribbon wreath

Wired ribbon is ribbon with pieces of wire worked into it, so that it is more rigid than plain ribbon. Typically, the wires in wired ribbon run down either side of the ribbon, and they are covered by the edging of the ribbon so that they are not visible. Some variants on the design use a single wire run down the middle of the ribbon, for more flexibility. There are a number of uses for wired ribbon, and the material comes in a wide range of sizes and designs as a result. Most craft stores stock wired ribbon, and it can also be special ordered if a particular configuration is desired.

Many people use wired ribbon in gift baskets and decorations, since it will hold its shape once it has been bent. This trait will cause wired ribbon to look neater, as it will not droop as it sits. It may also be used to close gift bags, since it can be twisted shut and shaped into a bow. The ribbon can also be bent into shapes like flowers and used as a decorative feature on craft projects.

Technically, almost any type of ribbon can be wired, ranging from sheer ribbon to dense grosgrain. Some ribbon companies offer both wired and unwired versions of their products, and they may offer wired ribbon in a range of colors and patterns. The wire-edged ribbon is sold on spools, just like regular ribbon, although consumers do need to be careful about crushing the spool and bending the wire out of shape.

Crafters can also use wired ribbon on clothing. The wire will help the ribbon hold its shape when it is used as trim, for example, which can be quite useful. Caution should be used when sewing wired ribbon onto clothing, to ensure that the wires do not protrude and poke the wearer. Sewing wired ribbon onto the outside of a garment and tucking the ends of the wire under can help to prevent unwanted scratches and poking.

In some cases, wired ribbon is designed for outdoor use as well as indoor use. The ribbon tends to hold up better than regular ribbon through events like wedding parties, and the wiring allows decorators to twist it into fanciful shapes. If you do want to use wired ribbon outside, check the packaging to make sure that it can be used outdoors, as water damage can cause dyed ribbons to run or stain in unattractive patterns.

Supplies for making a ribbon wreath

  1. Wire wreath frame (pictured above). Usually located in the floral department of any craft store or amazon, these come in an array of sizes (4″-24″). Decide where you’ll be wanting to use/hang this wreath and size accordingly. For example, if you have a large front door or entry, consider using a larger sized frame. If you’d prefer to make a couple for table centerpieces, maybe use a smaller frame. It really just depends. When you visit your local craft supply store, you’ll be able to see the sizes and gauge more appropriately.
  2. Floral pics. These aren’t necessary to complete this project. They just add another element of character and dimension.
  3. Ribbon. The style, color, and width of ribbon are up to you. I prefer ribbon that has a wired edge. This makes it easier to move, bend and guide the ribbon to where you want it to be. I have made this with a burlap ribbon that did not have a wired edge and it turned out fine. I did find that I used more ribbon than I normally would though. Typically, the larger the ribbon, the less you’ll need. If you decide that you want the ribbon to have tighter curls and a lot more of them, the more ribbon you’ll need. If you prefer the curls to be tighter and sit closer to the frame, the less you’ll need. It really just depends on what look you’re going for. Watch the tutorial video before heading to the store for supplies. (Tip-when buying ribbon, especially if your craft store doesn’t have a lot left of a particular color and style you are going for, buy extra! It’s better to have too much than not enough).
  4. Wreath hanger. If you are planning on hanging this on your front door, be sure you have a wreath hanger to hang it from. I’ll put a link below to the one we have.

Instructions for making a simple DIY ribbon wreath

  1. Purchase supplies needed to complete project (see list above). Watch tutorial to best gauge how much ribbon you may need. Better to have too much ribbon than not enough ( I can’t stress this enough).
  2. Remove all excess packaging from ribbon and floral pics and wire frame.
  3. With the wire frame arch facing down towards your work surface, tie a knot around and onto the 2 center wires of the wreath frame. If you are using a wired ribbon, you don’t need to double knot it. Just be sure that you leave a tail of at least an inch. If you are using a non-wired ribbon, I’d recommend a double knot. Just to be sure that its secured and won’t come undone.
  4. Once your knot is secure, flip the frame over on the work surface so the knot is down (touching the work surface) and the arch of the frame is now facing up. Pull the tail of the ribbon up through the frame so it won’t be visible from the underside. This is not a big deal if you just want to leave it. You won’t see it anyhow since it will be on the back. This is just how I prefer to do mine and keep it nice and clean.
  5. Having the wreath frame now facing up, you can begin construction. With the inside or the outside channel (no it really doesn’t matter), pull up a loop of ribbon the desired size (the loops of ribbon I did for this project were 3.5″ and the ribbon was 4″ wide-for reference). You’ll want to try and make each one close to the same size. Perfection, however, isn’t at all necessary. (If you’d prefer to add more dimension, you can also make some of the loops larger. Again, this is entirely up to you and its really customizable for each person. Do whatever you think will look good). See detailed pictures at bottom of post as well.

How to Make a Ribbon Wreath

All you need to make a ribbon wreath is inspiration, patience and a basic list of materials that you can shop at any store. Let’s get started.

1. How to make a wreath out of mesh ribbon

How to make a ribbon wreath

This is the easiest guide on how to make mesh ribbon wreaths. Life is indeed crazy good when you add so much color to it. Here is what you need to make this type of mesh ribbon wreath in a few easy steps:

  • A metal wreath form. You can either purchase it or make it yourself using sturdy wire. The more rings the form has, the more space to decorate.
  • Mesh material in your favorite colors.
  • A pair of scissors.
  • Mesh clips, pins or a loaded stapler. Alternatively, you can use a glue gun with colorless glue so that the spillovers don’t leave messy trails.

Armed with these materials, let your crafting skills go wild. Begin by cutting 7-inch strips of mesh. Cut as many such stripes as wish. The more, the richer and merrier your wreath will look. Shape each of them in rounded ribbons. Then, staple each individual stripe to keep its form. Alternatively, secure each ribbon with a pin or glue.

A metal wreath can look pretty by itself. Yet it’s all the more attractive if it’s wrapped in the colorful mesh material. Wrapping it in layers of mesh materials doesn’t only provide a solid base, but it also gives a coherent look to the final result.

With these two steps completed, all you need to do is secure bundles and bundles of the mesh ribbons on the support. Use any method that seems more convenient to you. There it is: the easy guide on how to make a ribbon wreath.

2. How to make a deco ribbon wreath

How to make a ribbon wreath

This gorgeous example of a deco ribbon wreath is ideal to decorate your home in any season. Of course, it looks more complicated than simply adding a bow to a wreath. Nonetheless, we can assure you it isn’t. The basic materials you’ll need:

  • Plenty of grosgrain ribbon in the color and patterns you find most fit for your project.
  • Satin ribbon to wrap the wreath form. A foam wreath form is ideal, but depending on your skill level, any form material will do.
  • Scissors and pins to secure each ribbon loop.

Start by wrapping the wreath form in the satin ribbon. The basic color isn’t that important as the wreath should eventually be covered in fancy ribbons, thus not very visible. Nonetheless, choose a color that fits your general scheme.

Set the wrapped form aside and start cutting the ribbons in 3-inch strips which you can secure into a loop with the help of pins. The fun time starts just shortly afterward. Pin the ribbon loops on the form in random spots. Alternate the colors and patterns to get a vivid and rich look. Layer after layer of ribbons will create this magnificent ribbon wreath. Isn’t it imaginative?

3. How to make a burlap ribbon wreath

How to make a ribbon wreath

A burlap ribbon wreath must be one of the favorite wreath designs. Their rustic yet chic look makes them a great choice for the garden, outside terraces and more. Hung on the door instead of a Welcome sign they will give an instant homey feeling to visiting friends and family.

This is the quick shopping list for this type of wreath:

  • Burlap Jute Ribbon, 6-inch wide.
  • A pair of scissors and hot glue gun.
  • Wire wreath form.
  • 6 pipe cleaners, each 6-inch.
  • Wired Ribbon.
  • Any flower or leaves decorations you like most.

With these readily at hand, let’s start crafting. The burlap ribbon is the first to be used. Tie one end to make a knot on the wire frame. Secure it with a pipe cleaner piece. Start making loops of burlap ribbon and push them through the wire. Don’t make them too loose, but not too tight either. Find the perfect balance to keep the ribbon shape and cover the wire at the same time.

When the wire frame is completed, cut off the remaining burlap ribbon. Secure the end with another knot and tuck it under the last ribbon. This step ensures a clean look without loose ends. The back of the wreath may look a little messy, so use the pipe cleaner pieces to keep everything in place.

The finishing touch: hot glue the flower decorations in any pattern you like. If there are other decorations you would like to embellish your wreath with, feel free to use them. Before putting up the burlap ribbon wreath, make sure everything is glued together as it should.

As you can see, making a ribbon wreath is quite simple. We hope we answered the ‘How to make a ribbon wreath’ question just in time for your next DIY project. Save a couple of hours to revel in such a rewarding crafts project. The results are nothing short of delightful.

How to make a ribbon wreath

How to make a ribbon wreath

🌸Use pans that have clear temperature control

🌸Use inexpensive electric fry pans from Walmart or Amazon

🌸Throw away the lid!! I promise it will stick!

🌸Melt to honey consistency

🌸Temperature depends on the size of the pan and amount of glue

🌸When finished turn off and glue will harden. To use again, turn back on.

🌸Protect your table with a ceramic tile under it at all times.

This is only for the serious crafter! It’s much quicker than waiting on glue guns to heat up.

How do you make a ribbon wreath out of pipe cleaners?

All you need to do it take one pipe cleaner at a time and twist them onto the wreath form. Start on the inside of the wreath and twist a pipe cleaner onto the wire. Loop and twist. Next, twist another pipe cleaner to the outer wire.

How do you wrap a wreath with mesh?

  1. Begin with pipe cleaners. Wrap several pipe cleaners around a metal wreath frame.
  2. Attach the deco mesh ribbon to the frame.
