For months I have wanted to try a ribbon wreath. Because I decorated my first grade classroom in red, white, and blue, I still have plenty of patriotic ribbon in my collection. So I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to create an adorable star ribbon wreath! (I thought I'd had an original idea, but as it turns out, I have seen these star rag and ribbon wreaths popping up everywhere! Great minds think alike!)
I think we all have those moments where our vision of creating something beautiful doesn't quite work out as planned. That is the story of my life! I am still learning to love the shape of my wreath. However, I am still enchanted by my cheery reminder of American pride hanging on my front door!
After creating the star shape out of a wire hanger, it was quite a simple process. This is what I did:
I loved my wreath best when I turned all of the knots so that the extra fabric faces OUTWARD. It gives the star the most defined look. I had to play with it for a while before I was satisfied.
PS Lest you think that my blog is suffering from an identity crisis, I think I am finally pinning down my decisions on the blog facelift. I am not the most decisive person... I just keep tweaking away. So bear with me!
