Happy weekend all! Today I am posting in response to round one of May Art’s Design Team Call! I am super excited about this call and have been waiting for opportunity ever since I spent some time at their booth at 2013 Winter CHA! To be a Prima Ribbonista would be such an honor so I hope these below projects and tutorial catch their eye enough to advance me to the next round! Fingers crossed and wish me luck!
Summer Ribbon Wreath Tutorial!
- May Arts Ribbon
- Wooden flat craft ring (found at any craft supply store)
- Silk flowers
- Baker’s Twine
- Tapestry Needle
- Hot Glue
Step 1: Wrapping Flat Wooden Ring – Using May Arts ribbon, tape end to the back of the wooden ring and begin to wrap. Once finished hot glue end.
Step 2: Assembling Silk Daises – First pull off stems and pop out plastic center. Sew button onto the middle of the daisies using a tapestry needle and Baker’s Twine (a tapestry needed works best for pulling through the many layers of the silk flower).
Step 3: Assemble Wreath – Using a hot glue, arrange and attach each daisy to the bottom corner of the wreath. Then add three coordinating buttons to the top corner for balance.
Step 4: Finishing Wreath – Using a 18-inch of coordinating ribbon, fold in half and loop over the top center of the wreath to form a slip knot. Tie at the top of the ribbon and trim ends.
Now doesn’t this wreath just scream summer! I already have it hanging on my front door hoping it will encourage the sun to overpower our Southern California “June Gloom”.
Using ribbon in projects is like icing a cake. It really finishes the projects and makes them truly appealing. Here are a few more projects where the ribbon certainly adds that needed W-O-W factor!
Thank you for taking a peek at my attempt to become a Prima Ribbonista!
