Curly Ribbon Wreath Love

IMG_0279I’ve received a ton of comments on my version of the curly ribbon wreath, (click here for the original post).IMG_0398I’ve even found a few people who have shared their own curly ribbon wreath creations with me. I thought it would be fun to show them to y’all. 

Cyndi from Loftee Ideas made her fun multi-colored version by cutting 9 inch lengths of curling ribbon, curling them and tying them around the base (which she covered in wide silk ribbon rather than painting it).

I love all those colors!  This will be perfect on her door all the way through summer. 

MrsSstrug posted her version on The Nest. She used the same technique of curling her own ribbon and tying it on, except she used all one color.  She then hot-glued plastic eggs, bunnies, and the “Happy Easter” wording (cut using a Cricut) to more pieces of ribbon, which she then tied to the wreath.

How bright and cheery is that?! I love that she’ll be able to change out the decorations for other seasons. She said she might do little rain boots for the rest of April and the little flowers for May.

Another reader of mine, Jenny from Mommy of 2, Soulmate of 1, made a darling pastel curly ribbon wreath for Easter. I love the soft colors and the bunny silhouette tied on!  One of her readers sent her a photo of the wreath she made for her son’s Elmo-themed birthday party:What a great idea to include the birthday party invitation as an accent on the wreath!  My mom suggested that these wreaths would make cute centerpieces around cake stands for a party, I love that idea, too!

Here’s one more that was just emailed to me from Jen at Warrior Princess: ribbon-wreath

She added white ribbon, which really makes it pop, and what a cute little personalized birdie!

Thanks so much to everyone who let me know about their great creations, they all turned out beautifully!  This was such an awesome project, I’m calling it my “BEST DIY PROJECT OF THE MONTH” and sharing this post with Traci’s party over at Beneath My Heart.

 

If you have been inspired to make anything using one of my tutorials, shoot me an email (embellishedbayou@comcast.net) and I’ll feature you on my blog!

Stay tuned for an AWESOME new tutorial later this week when I guest post over at Tatertots & Jello!

P.S. Also sharing with Kimba for DIY Day!

    another idea for a bday party, is to put a round paper plate in the middle of the wreath for decoration, to match the theme!
