Watch The Video Tutorial
I made a short video you can find at the end of this post, so you can see the process from start to finish and follow along.
Just in case you would prefer to follow written directions rather than a video, here you go! You can print a printer-friendly copy at the end of this post, if you want.
As you can tell from the number of steps involved, this wreath is a breeze to make, so you can make several for friends and family or use to boost your inventory.
Secure your attachments, picks, and sprays to one of the spokes of the bike wheel using zip ties.
Cut a piece of deco mesh to make a ruffle for the base of your bow.
Get creative with your ribbon patterns and colors to make your bow.
Take your green 2″ ribbon and make a bow with a loop and tails. Layer on top another 2″ ribbon with a loop and tails.
On top of that, add a 1.5″ ribbon for a loop and tails. The last layer of your bow will be another 1.5″ ribbon with a loop and tails.
Use a pipe cleaner to secure your bow and to attach both ruffle and bow to the bike wheel.
Fluff out bow once attached. Dovetail your tails, if you want to.
Adjust your picks and sprays so it gives the wreath some depth.
