Easy Fall Ribbon Wreath

When I was a kid, I always thought I would highlight the seasons and major holidays by changing up the décor in my home to reflect them. Due to tight budgets, busy days, and severely limited craft skills, this has never become a reality.

This festive fall ribbon wreath is both simple and lovely. Here are detailed instructions for how to make one for your home.

I’m slowly working to change this. One baby step is the creation of this fall wreath. I’ve seen a variety of tied ribbon wreaths on Pinterest and I figured I have enough skill to make one myself. I did, and I’m sure you can make one, too.

Supplies

  • Wreath form (made of Styrofoam, metal, straw, etc.)
  • Ribbon (lots of it—I used over 40 yards on my 12 inch wreath form)

Instructions

Cut the ribbons into strips that are approximately 13 inches in length. (Note: You may need longer or shorter lengths depending on the size of your wreath form. Cut a few ribbons in varying lengths to see which works best for you.)

Ribbons for an Easy Fall Ribbon Wreath

Tie the ribbons around the wreath form, intermixing the various colors and widths you’ve chosen.

Trim the ends of the ribbons and use a cotton swab to rub fabric glue along them to prevent fraying.

Attach an embellishment (wooden cutout, flower, bow, etc.) to the wreath, if desired. Hang and enjoy!

I love how this turned out! It is both simple and lovely. It was easy to make and the supplies were pretty affordable. I hope you have an enjoyable time if you decide to make one. You can easily apply this approach to any season or holiday—simply use relevant colors of ribbon!

Do you have a fall wreath on your door? What does it look like?

  1. This is so simple, but it looks amazing! Lovely 🙂

  2. Okay, Shannon, so big news: I have PINNED this post even though it is a craft, and I don’t craft. But this is so sweet and looks like something even a craft-challenged, glue-gun fearing chocoholic like me might be able to handle. Love it. So glad I clicked over from Coffee & Conversation! 🙂

  3. So pretty. Must have been fun to make.

  4. I need to make this. I have a thing for ribbon, and this gives me the perfect excuse to buy a whole bunch…for every season and occasion I can think of. I’m definitely going to share this on Pinterest.

    • Ribbon is pretty, isn’t it? You’d love this and can make several versions so you’ll have them for various holidays.

  5. Added this to our fall decorating round-up at PatAndCandy tomorrow!
