A ribbon wreath for Christmas...

I'd been wanting to make a ribbon wreath ever since I saw the one near the back of the 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog. I picked up a wire wreath form Saturday at a craft store for $3.69. It is four rings of wire connected at six different points and is green. I think it's the 14" form. The wreath took one roll each of:

  •  1-1/4" Early Espresso grosgrain
  •  1-1/4" Real Red grosgrain
  •  1-1/4" Old Olive grosgrain
  •  5/8" Real Red satin ribbon
  •  5/8" Old Olive grosgrain
  •  and 2 rolls of Victoria crochet trim
It took my 10-year-old daughter and I 1-1/2 hours to make the entire thing! It was so easy, I never imagined.

Love this wreath. what size form did you use?

I'm not sure of the diameter. It was the smallest the craft store had in stock - maybe 14" is what I'm guessing.

can you tell us how long the pieces of ribbon were? Also, did you just do a single knot? It is beautiful and I would LOVE to make one for my door!!
