To make the Mini Ribbon Wreath Ornaments

Finished Size : 3”

Materials Used:

  • Smoothfoam 2 7/16” x 1/2” Round Wreath
  • 3 yards of Ribbon (1/4” or 3/8”)
  • 1/8″ Scor-tape or Red Lined Tape
  • Beacon Fabri-Tac Permanent Adhesive
  • Jingle Bell and Jump Ring
  • Adhesive Pearls
  • Mini Bottle Brush Trees
  • Computer Generated Greeting printed on Cream Card-stock
  • Burlap or Scrapbook Paper Backing
  • Thin Metallic Trim for Hanging
  • Chipboard
  • Scissors

Directions:

  1. Apply a strip of 1/8″ adhesive around the outside edge of the Smoothfoam wreath. This keeps the ribbon securely in place while wrapping.
  2. Wrap ribbon tightly around wreath. When you’ve wrapped the ribbon half way around wreath add the jump ring with jingle bell to ribbon so that it hangs on the bottom of the wreath and continue wrapping. When finished wrapping the ribbon, glue ribbon end onto back of wreath.
  3. Add metallic ribbon trim on top of the wreath as the ornament hanger.
  4. Glue mini bottle brush tree inside wreath.
  5. Glue a piece of burlap or scrapbook paper onto a piece of chipboard and cut into a circle that will cover the inside of the wreath and glue to the back of the wreath.
  6. Print a computer generated greeting on to a piece of cream card-stock. Cut down to size and notch out both ends to create a banner.
  7. Give the banner a quick wave using your fingers and glue onto the bottom of the wreath.
  8. Add adhesive pearls on to the wreath.
  9. Add bow on the top of the wreath to finish it off.

The Mini Ornaments were designed by me (Sue Eldred) and created for and sponsored by Craft Ideas Magazine.
