Christmas Wreaths: Loopy Large Ribbon Wreath

Loopy ribbon wreaths are all the craze, this holiday season. I designed a very simple way to make a loopy ribbon wreath, that doesn’t require multiple strands of ribbon to be cut. In fact, you can leave the ribbon on the spool and just unroll it as you create the large wire ribbon loops, onto the Christmas wreath. Many of the instructions I have seen for making loopy ribbon wreaths require you to cut tons of small ribbon strands, fold each ribbon strand into a loop, and then pin the loop onto a Styrofoam wreath. My tutorial below uses large wire ribbon and Bowdabra Bow Wire to hold the ribbon loops onto wreath.

How to Make a Loopy Large Ribbon Wreath

Materials Needed:

  • Wreath Form (I used poster board)
  • approx. 7yds of Red & White Wire Ribbon
  • approx. 7yds of Gold & White Wire Ribbon

Instructions:

1. Begin with either making a wreath form with poster board or using an MDF form. I used two piece of poster board and hot glued them together.

7. If you used poster board to make your wreath form – Make two more poster board forms and hot glue it onto the back of the wreath for great stability.
