How to make a ribbon wreath (step-by-step tutorial with pictures).

Making a ribbon wreath is a creative and even festive way to decorate any doorway or wall. In this case, I have made a Christmas ribbon wreath using holiday-themed ribbons but you can customize the wreath for any season (like this DIY summer wreath) or holiday of the year.

I wouldn’t say it is a difficult DIY decor project but it requires a little bit of time and care.

If you want to lower the cost buy the supplies from a thrift store or use leftover ribbons from other projects.

How To Make A Ribbon Wreath

This DIY ribbon wreath is very easy to do because it uses 3 ribbons at once. The fun part of this project is finding your preferred ribbon design and color scheme.

I was inspired to make this ribbon wreath by this video. He uses 4 ribbons but I decided to do it with 3 because the wire form I’m using is smaller.

Supplies you need

  • a wreath wire form (I’m using a 12″ wireframe)
  • 3 wired ribbons in various designs (2.5″ x 10m)
  • zip ties
  • scissors

Directions on how to make a ribbon wreath

The first thing is to put together the ends of the 3 ribbons and roll them up until there is only one big loop reel. Before rolling the ribbons, be sure to place them facing the side you want to display.

4. Now gather the ends of the ribbons and attach them to the wireframe using a zip tie. Make sure the sides of the ribbons are down like in the image below.

5. Use a zip tie to attach the ribbon to the wireframe. The wireframe I’m using has 2 wires so I’m attaching the ribbon to the inside wire.
