Spring DIY Ribbon Wreath
Are you ready for spring yet? I sure am! Here in Wisconsin we still have feet (yes, plural!) of snow on the ground and I decided it was time to bring out the spring wreath in chance that some of the snow would melt.
I created a spring version of the luxurious looped ribbon wreath using May Arts’ wired seafoam ribbon with silver lines. You can find brief tips on how to make this wreath here, where I showcased my Christmas Wreath.
I’m so smitten with this ribbon line. First, the Seafoam color is such a perfect pastel shade and can hold its own for St. Patrick’s Day, Easter or Spring depending on the decorations you use for your wreath. The silver lines running throughout the length of the ribbon offers just the right amount of interest and texture that you do not have to worry about mixing and matching ribbon colors, widths or other textures. I used roughly two and a half spools of 2.5” width to create this full wreath. Finally, this ribbon lines offers a few more pastel colors plus some deep earth tones that would be perfect for wreaths for the fall to winter seasons.
I purchased a twig of silk hydrangeas and silk hydrangeas to dress up the wreath for spring. I only secured these with twist ties, so that they can easily be switched out for artificial four leaf clovers for St. Patrick’s Day, plastic foam eggs for the Easter Holiday or even another bush of artificial flowers such as pink or white roses to carry me into summer if I wish.
I’m infatuated with the wired ribbon that May Arts offers, there’s a variety of widths, colors and styles on the website, and you can find them all here!
