I chose these colors because I love the combination of cool aqua blue with deep cranberry red, and the yellow touch in the berries convinced me to add a pop of mustard with the flowers. I wasn't going to add the felt flowers at first but my artsy husand convinced me to and I'm glad he did. Looking back, the wreath looked a bit sad and sparse without them. Thank you, Mr. Fullwood! You sure have a knack for these things.
You will need:
1 small round wreath (I used a 9 inch from Dollar Tree)
Ribbon of your choice, about 2 yards in each color
Felt flowers (or any kind you have on hand)
Faux berries (these were 99 cents each at Michaels)
Hot glue gun
Step one: Begin wrapping the wreath with ribbon tightly, hot gluing after every few wraps
Step two: Take your other color of ribbon and repeat, filling in the uncovered spaces
Should look something like this...
Step three: Keep alternating ribbon colors and fill in all uncovered spots of the wreath. It doesn't have to be symmetrical or perfect, just do what you think looks good.
Step four: Cut your berries into smaller strands, leaving a little stem
Step five: Tuck each stem into a piece of ribbon, and hot glue to secure
Step six: Using your extra wire from the berries, cut a 2 inch piece and twist it into a circle. Hot glue it onto the back of your wreath at the very top to serve as the hanger.
Step seven: Glue on any flowers or extra "flair" you'd like. I used these felt flowers.You now have yourself a new little piece of fall in your home. Happy crafting, y'all!
