My front door wreath.... Barbie it involves a bow :)

Posted by   + Show Post

So I decided to get crafty and make a wreath for my front door- it was suppose to involve a glue gun and ornaments, but my husband was also involved so it ended up with pine cones, apples and cranberries- I put it all together while he and the cats watched.

The cat did try to help at one point-

In the magazine it is very basic and the bows are basic. I am a visual person and some of the bows in there I have never made before but I could make them just following the directions without having to watch someone do it. The way I do may bows is that I start out by looping my ribbon around in a circle about 7 times so I will have 7 loops on each side. After I have wrapped it around itself 7 times, I fold it in the middle and cut a small V on each side. I then tie or wrap wire very tightly around the middle. I start pulling my middle loops out first, rotating them up and down and I do that on both sides. If you use wired ribbon you can manipulate the shape a little better and where the loops end up in the bow.

Okay, just let me know :). In this months Better Homes and Gardens magazine there are some good tutorials and there are some videos on their site as well.

Thank you:) If you will send me your ribbon I can make you a bow. I don't mind.

Quoting Linds2Horse:

Oh, I love it!  That is almost the look I was thinking of doing my tree this year. Your bow is amazing!  That's the type I've been trying to make but the loops are all uneven when I make it, and they bunch to one side. I have bow envy.  You must come over and help me!!!


Thank you. I want to try a few more times, but if I can't get it I'll definitely send you a package .:)  I bought Dh a large tool trunk. It's huge so I need a big bow for the top.


I tried following a youtube video but I just lack the finger skills.  I can't loop, twist, hold without dropping everything I've already looped and twisted.
