Age range: 12 and Up
Things to do:
1. Fold your burlap ribbon in half and use a pipe cleaner to secure it to a dividing wire on your wreath form. Make sure the pipe cleaner is wrapped tightly, because this will serve as the anchor for the rest of your wreath.
2. Create a loop that is roughly 2-inches long with your ribbon and slide it through the bottom opening of your wreath form.
3. Twist the ribbon and feed it through the middle section of your wreath form, creating another 2-inch loop.
5. Continue creating loops on the wreath form until you reach the next divider.
4. Twist the ribbon and feed it up through the top section and your wreath form, creating another 2-inch loop.
6. When you come to the next divider, use a 5-inch piece of pipe cleaner to secure the bottom loop.
7. Continue making loops until the entire wreath form is covered, stopping at the dividers to secure the burlap ribbon with pipe cleaners.
8. When you’ve covered the entire wreath form, cut your ribbon and use a 5-inch piece of pipe cleaner to secure a final loop in place.
9. Trim any excess pipe cleaner and pull all of the loops out, creating a full wreath.
