How To Make A Cow Themed Everyday Wreath For Your Front Door

Follow this step by step process to create your own fun everyday cow wreath!

Step 1

Take your wreath base and attach your pipe cleaners to it if you haven’t already. There should be 10 around the outside (back) and 8 around the center (front).

Step 2

Take your first mesh strip and curl the ends under then scrunch toward the middle to create your ruffle. Use one of the pipe cleaners on the outside to attach your ruffle to the wreath base.

Repeat the same process 17 more times as you work your way around the wreath on the outside and then again on the inside.

Step 3 

Take your ribbon strips and match them together in groups. 1 cow pattern plus two other patterns. Fold the group of strips in half and attach them to your wreath frame using your pipe cleaners.

Repeat the same process with 1 cow print and your other 2 ribbon prints. Alternate the ribbon groups as you work your way around the wreath.

Each group will have one 2.5-inch ribbon and two 1.5-ribbons.

Step 4

Take your deco mesh tubing and create 2 loops and 2 tails for each twist tie with it. Attach your loops around the center of your wreath to finish off your pipe cleaners.

Step 5

Take your cow sign and glue pipe cleaners to the back of it. Once the glue is dry, attach the sign to the center of your wreath frame.

Step 6

Take your small white flower florals and break them apart. Using glue, insert them into your wreath design all around the wreath, alternating with the your greenery that has the berries. 

Step 7

Take your 4-inch ribbon and make a 5.5 inch loop with a 10 inch tail. Just a very simple bow.

Step 8

Take your 2-inch ribbon and repeat the process making your bow slightly smaller, about 4.5 inches. Using your EZ Bow maker, place this bow in front of (or on top of) the bow with your 4-inch ribbon.

Step 9

Repeat this process again with your first 1.5 inch ribbon with the bow being slightly smaller – about 2.5 inches. And for the last 1.5 inch ribbon, make one 1.5 inch loop with two tails.

Step 10

Cut your tails at an angle to finish them off.

Step 11

For the top of the wreath (above the sign), take your lace ribbon and cow print ribbon and make a loop and a tail on each side. Add just a little bit of raffia and tubing in the same method.

Hold them together with a pipe cleaner and attach it to your wreath just above the sign.
