Tutorial: Grosgrain Polka Dot Christmas Wreath

On Sunday, we had our Christmas Card Writing Party, and I’ll be sharing photos with you later this week. In the meantime, I wanted you to see the wreath I made for the party and share the tutorial I used.

This wreath is so easy. My only caution to you is that it requires a LOT of ribbon, so it gets a little pricey. (I ordered the pink/red ribbon from the site recommended in the tutorial I used and didn’t think it was such a great deal. Then, I ordered the green ribbon from Cousin Gigi on Etsy and the price was half was I paid for the same amount of pink/red ribbon. If I had it to do over, I also would have ordered Cousin Gigi’s white with red polka dot ribbon.)

I used this tutorial from The Long Thread. The instructions were so easy to follow, and I made this wreath in no time.

Thanks to P Is for Party for including the original wreath in her round up of Halloween wreaths and providing the inspiration. What I love about this wreath is that is beautiful in a solid color, or in any number of color combinations. You could make a great Thanksgiving wreath or a college football wreath to use year after year.

If you try this, I’d love to see your photos.
