I love all things Irish and ribbon, so making a ribbon wreath for St. Patrick's Day is perfect. I bought a few different ribbon styles for St. Patricks Day and then I cut all the ribbon about 7 inches long.
Variety of Ribbon- it took these 4 spools in the picture and then I used a little bit off the other spools. I bought 2 spools of each ribbon because I didn't want to run out. Remember the amount of ribbon you need will depend on the size of the embroidery hoop.
Then I start tying the ribbon around the wreath in a pattern. This is the pattern I'm going to use.
I like to use an embroidery hoop to tie the ribbon on because you don't need to use as much ribbon.
This does take time and can make your fingers tired from tying, but don't stop the finished project is beautiful. When the wreath is finished I just go around and cut all the little pieces of ribbon sticking out.
Here is the finished St. Patrick's Day Ribbon Wreath.
May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow,
and may trouble avoid you
wherever you go!
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
