Taking a Stab at Becoming a Prima Ribbonista with May Arts!

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!

Materials Needed:

  • May Arts Ribbon
  • Wooden flat craft ring (found at any craft supply store)
  • Silk flowers
  • Baker’s Twine
  • Buttons
  • Tapestry Needle
  • Hot Glue
  • Tape
  • Scissors

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!

I am a stay at home domestic engineer that has a love for my family, food, writing, crafting, photography and most of all a clean and orderly house. I feel I was born in the wrong era in many things and the only thing I would change if I was a "Donna Reed or June Cleaver" kind of mom is that I would still get to wear my sweats and Crocs while washing the windows.
