Coach Tammy from The Makers University coaching team drops a new tutorial and it’s FUN and oh so colorful. This DIY Fiesta Wreath pops with pinks, oranges, and a whole lot of ribbon tails.

Ribbon Tails for the Fiesta Wreath

You’ll be using 2 different 2.5″ ribbon for the ribbon tails. Cut each style into 12″ tails. You could make 14″ tails if you’d prefer, but the look that Tammy was going for fit a 12″ length better.

When it comes to ribbon tails, you don’t necessarily use the most expensive ribbon since you’ll be using quite a bit from your roll. Plus, it adds to the price of the overall wreath if you plan on selling it.
