I just love hanging a wreath on my rounded front door. I always choose light colors because the door is a dark brown, the lighter the wreath the more it POPS!
I also fancy texture, the more the better. I like how the ribbon which is smooth and soft contrasts with the rough, crunchy streamer. It's more visually appealing. Want to know how I did it?
These are the supplies you will need:
This project is easy and it's great that ribbon and streamers come in so many different colors and sizes. Then there is lots to pick from!
If you want small rosettes for your wreath cut the stream 12 inches long.
If you want thicker rosettes cut them 20 to 24 inches long. Cut lots. I cut 20 for a section of my wreath. Then crumple your streamers.
Start by rolling the streamer for the center of the rosette.
Twist the streamer as you go around the center and dab glue every so often to keep the rosette together.
I practiced on a few first, to get the hang of the process. As for my wreath, I wrapped the ribbon around it. I dabbed foam glue at the start of the ribbon and then to keep the ribbon in place I dabbed glue at the end of the ribbon.
I then rolled rosettes and staggered them as I glued and placed them on the wreath.
I braided some streamers and glued it to the back of my wreath to use as a hook. I have a nail in my door and that is the only way I can hang things. I wish the store would make a super extra wide door hanger for my trusty door but they don't. Finally, a splash of fun colored flowers and my wreath is complete!
