Homemade Crafts: Ribbon Christmas Cookie Wreath!
Hi everyone, Katie Smith of Punk Projects here! Today I’m showing you how I made this fun Christmas Cookie Wreath! Christmas is sneaking up, so I decided to start making some Christmas décor for my home! My color theme for this year’s Christmas décor has bright pinks, lime greens and purple in it for a fun and non-traditional look. I love the look of the 1.5 inch Faux Jute Base w/ Snowflakes, so I added it in with the bright colors as well!
To Create this Beautiful Wreath, Follow the Steps Below:
Step One: Select at least four unique and festive ribbons! Then cut your ribbons into 2’ long pieces.
Step Two: Take one of your 2’ long pieces of ribbon and tie a bow around your wreath form. Then take a second ribbon and tie another bow, sliding it up to just below the first.Step Three: Continue tying bows around the wreath form until you’ve covered the whole wreath in pretty ribbons!Step Four: Add a ribbon to the top of the wreath to hang it, I did this by simply tying a ribbon around the wreath. I also adhered a large bow on to the front.
Step Five: Time to make the cookies! Cut out 2 cookies of each shape from tan felt. Also cut out 2 cookies of each shape from colored felt (for the “frosting”), making them a ¼” smaller than the tan felt shape. Use THIS cookie pattern stencil to help you trace the shapes.
Step Six: Adhere the colored felt pieces onto the top of the tan felt, and embellish with glitter glue and sequins.
Step Seven: Adhere the felt cookies to the front of the wreath.
If you don’t like the bright colors, this could also easily be done with more traditional colors. For a more traditional look, just swap the limes and pinks out for red and green ribbons!
