Step 1- Let’s make ribbon loops!
I have said it before – if you can make a loop and pinch the middle – you can make a bow. This wreath idea is basically lots of bows tucked close together. Let’s cut our ribbon into 16 in. strips. Make a circle with the ribbon and secure. In the post on How to wrap gifts beautifully, I used tape to secure. Another option is using as stapler.
Step 2 – Pinch and layer
Now that we have tons of loops, let’s start creating bows. Take your loop and pinch the middle if you used tape- skip this step. If you used a stapler, ya gotta pinch and use a chenille stem to secure (cut your stems in half).
Begin laying 3 loops in a criss-cross pattern. Use a chenille stem to hold the 3 loops together. This will create a simple bow.
Step 3 – Create the wreath
Take the bows and secure them to the wire wreath frame. Use the two middle rings to attach the bows to the frame. Continue this step until the wire frame is full and fluffy.

Step 4 – Add the extras
The wreath will be lovely on its own but adding a little “Merry Christmas” to it is always appropriate.

I love the idea of making all the bows and then attaching them to the wreath form instead of weaving in and out. Your wreath is gorgeous!
I’ve incorporated red & black buffalo check into my holiday decor this year and so I’m swooning over your wreath. The gold-painted wood sentiment in the middle is a nice touch! Pinned 🙂
I love buffalo check and this wreath is so pretty. I love crafting and watching Hallmark.
Your instructions made me laugh with the “ahem, chenille stems.” Very beautiful wreath!
Falling hard for your beautiful wreath. That ribbon is wonderful with the little gold deer on it!
I’ve never seen it done this way before. I might actually be able to do this one! It’s beautiful!
Beautiful! It’s so full and pretty!
I love the red check ribbon with the gold deer embossed on it! It made a really pretty wreath.
