I posted a little tease about this project a couple weeks ago. It’s just another shameless rip-off of something I saw in one of my favorite local stores. I knew it was something I could make myself for less money. Here is the store’s version, retailing for $25.00:
Upon further inspection, I could see that this decoration was just a simple styrofoam wreath embellished with curly ribbon that had been stapled on. So I made a trip to Dollar Tree and Michael’s and came up with my own version for about $10.00:
While my version is not quite as large and full, I think it’s still pretty cute! Perfect for Easter or a birthday celebration!
I spray painted the wreath pink in case any of the it showed through the ribbons and because I would be hanging it on a glass door and the back would be visible. I bought seven 3-packs of curly ribbon bows at the dollar store. You’ll also need a staple gun and/or hot glue gun.
Keep doing this all the way around the wreath, pressing in the staples where needed. Now, I found that the staples wouldn’t stay in, so I secured the ribbon with hot glue. Depending on what kind of styrofoam wreath you have and how long your staples are, you may or may not need to do this.
Of course you can use any color ribbons you want. A more pastel version would be precious for a baby shower/new baby and a red, green and gold combo would be perfect for Christmas. So easy, festive and unique!
P.S. I'll be sharing with all the usual parties:
