A new RED Christmas Wreath!!

  Let the holiday's begin... This year I decided to make a red ribbon wreath for the front door. I can't remember where I saw this idea ( I would have definitely given the link) but i just knew I had to make one. If you can tie a knot you can make this wreath. Trust me it's really very easy. I began with a 12" strofoam wreath form and 2 1/2" wide red satin ribbon. (Lots of it, got mine at Costco) I would say at least 25 yrds. Cut your ribbon into pieces measuring approx. 16" inches long and tie each one around the stro wreath and make a knot.  Continue all the way around the wreath until it is all filled in. Afterwards trim the inside ribbon ends evenly and the outside ribbon ends also. It's really just that fast and easy!! I decided to embellish my wreath with 3 white felt rosettes that I just learned how to make. You can find the tutorial for the rosettes here at Inspirations by D.  (Take a look around on her blog she has lots of great ideas and neat things!) These roses are very easy to do also. Then I added quilted leaves (from scrap quilt fabric) and a red and white checked bow! And WHALA!! I'm good to go! This wreath would look lovely in green ribbon or even white. Whip one up in an afternoon and add a splash of RED to your holiday decor. I'm finally getting into the Christmas spirit!!
