- 1. If desired, place foam wreath inside large cardboard box
outdoors or in well-ventilated area. Spray paint wreath black;
sprinkle with glitter while wet. Let dry completely.
- 2. Tie grosgrain ribbon into a bow with tails; set aside. Cut
approximately twenty 4″ lengths from each sheer ribbon color;
cut more as needed to fill out wreath shape.
- 3. Apply dot of glue to opening of a black pony bead;
immediately insert one end of a sheer black ribbon length
through hole until tight. Let dry; trim excess ribbon above
bead. Repeat to bead all black and gold ribbons black; bead
all orange ribbons orange. Let dry.
- 4. Refer to photo to join beaded ribbon lengths to wreath.
Beginning just inside wreath opening, dot wreath with glue and
use wooden skewer to push free end of one ribbon length into
foam. Continue adding ribbons in concentric circles around
wreath, cutting and beading more ribbons as needed. Offset
ribbons slightly from circle to circle.
- 5. Use fingers to bend ribbon lengths toward outside edge of
wreath as shown. Twist wire ends, or knot thin ribbon ends,
together to create hanging loop. Glue ends into center top
back of wreath.
