Ribbon Wreath :: Lauren Brewer

Happy Friday!  Lauren here from Lauren's Creative!  I am so excited to share a ribbon wreath that I made for my daughter's preschool class.  Next week is teacher appreciation week, and I cannot wait to give this to my daughter's teacher.  I chose colors and die cuts that coordinate with their classroom, but of course the possibilities are endless.  I have been wanting to use the super sweet bookwork face for a really long time - I'm so excited that I got to use it on such a special project.

I made a similar wreath last fall, and I received a lot of requests for a video tutorial.  This is just a quick overview of how to put together a ribbon wreath.  I hope that it's helpful, but if you have any questions - please let me know!





I didn't mention exactly how much ribbon I used...that's a little difficult because I I ended up using some ribbon that I had on hand and some that I had bought specifically for this project.  I would estimate that you need AT LEAST 25 yards of ribbon.  I always can find a use for leftover ribbon, so I would rather have more than not enough.
My die cuts and mini-chalkboard are all hot glued to the wreath.  The Peachy Keen faces add so much personality to the simplest of images. 
I used the PK460-Happy Lashes Face Assortment for this sweet little bumblebee.



The super cute bookwork face is from the PK755 Critter Faces Set A Large set.  I found that little chalkboard in the Target $1 section last week.  It's supposed to be a plant marker, but I removed the stake for this project.  

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Have you considered making these for others to purchase? I am a 4th grade teacher and cannot seem to find a name board/wreath that I like. However, I love your wreath! Let me know if you would be interested in this!

I was about to ask the same thing as the previous comment. I would LOVE to purchase one of these from you if you would be willing to make one. You can contact me at jobarron@ptd.net if you are interested. Thanks! Jolene :o)
