Pinteresting: Easy Fall Wreath

It's been awhile since I've posted a Pinterest fail.  Why not post a fall wreath a few days after the first snow in Indiana?  Winter's here!  Let me show you how I made my fall wreath!  Better late than never I say.

When you finish this wreath and are beaming with pride that you finished a Pinterest project and start sending pictures of your wreath hanging on your door to all your friends, you will get comments like:
"Eh, it's okay.  It looks a little plain" and "Look at the one I did" followed by a picture of a wreath that looks like it was bought at a florist.  Now if that doesn't make you proud, I don't know what does!

Original Pin Idea: Sunflower Wreath

What you need:
Approximately 8 yards of wired ribbon of your choice
Twig Wreath

I made this wreath for less than $10 in about 15 minutes (took awhile because the bow kicked my butt).  I made sure to get the ribbon and wreath both on sale.  I chose a 16 inch twig wreath and a gorgeous orange wired ribbon.  I don't recommend doing this project on your bed like I did.  You will end up having to change your sheets. 

1.  Wrap the ribbon around the wreath.

2. Without cutting the ribbon, start folding the ribbon back and forth to make the bow.  You can choose how big the folds are and how many folds you make.  If you're like me, this part was the hardest because I was folding it the wrong way.  So if it isn't working, reverse your folding.

3.  Make a small center fold

4. Without cutting the ribbon, use the remainder of the ribbon to secure the folds by wrapping the ribbon around the folds AND the wreath. The ribbon will go through your small center fold.  This would be alot easier if you happen to have floral wire hanging around to secure the bow.  Of course I didn't and was too cheap to buy any.

5.  Ta-da! 

I would recommend adding wooden letters or flowers to your wreath so you don't get the comments I did.  But hey, rock your cheap easy fall wreath and be proud!
