How to Make a Christmas Wreath Ribbon

Updated February 21, 2017

The holidays are about getting together with family, having parties, celebrating the season and decorating your house. Many people enjoy hanging Christmas wreaths. You can make your own wreath using ribbon in the colours and designs that you like most. With only a few, inexpensive items, you can have a new wreath to show off in or outside of your home.

Unravel the first spool of ribbon. Cut the ribbon into 12 even pieces. Repeat this with the other two spools of ribbon so you have a total of 36 ribbons.

Tie the first style of ribbon into a bow on the metal ring. Next, tie the second style of ribbon into a bow on the ring, followed by the last style of ribbon.

Cut any ribbons ends that are too long to make the wreath look even. Spread out the ribbons to make sure they completely cover the ring.

Hammer a nail into a wall or a door where you'd like your wreath to be placed. Hang the wire ring onto the hook to display your Christmas wreath.
