Yield: 1 wreath

Instructions

  • Fluff out wreath form
  • Layer your mesh, measure out 12" and cut your strips. You'll need 13 strips.
  • Get a nice big roll, measure 5", tie to wreath form, make a poof and continue around the bottom of the frame. Make sure your curls are big. This is the curl and loop method.
  • Continue the same process with 2 layers all the way around the top of the frame.
  • Take attachment, add pipe cleaner between two flip flops and 2 at the top. Run pipe cleaner through the mesh and wrap around the metal frame.
  • Now we can add our bows. Get your ribbons and EZ Bow Maker.
  • Using the 2.5" ribbon create an 8" tail on the bottom right. Make a 7" loop on bottom left, loop on top right, and end with 8" tail on top left.
  • Using the 1.5" ribbon create an 7" tail on top right. Make a 6" loop on top left, loop on bottom right, and end with 7" tail on bottom left.
  • Using the 2.5" ribbon create an 8" tail on the bottom right. Make a 5.5" loop on bottom left, loop on top right, and end with 8" tail on top left.
  • Using the 1.5" ribbon create an 7" tail on each side.
  • Using the 1.5" ribbon create an 7" tail on the bottom right. Make a 4.5" loop on bottom left, loop on top right, and end with 7" tail on top left.
  • Using the 1.5" ribbon create an 7" tail on the bottom right. Make a 4" single loop, cut the tail
  • Take your pipe cleaner around the center of the bow, tie nice and tight, and arrange bow.
  • Repeat process and make 2 more bows.
  • Attach 1st bow on the bottom of the wreath wrapping the pipe cleaner around the metal frame, and fluff out bow.
  • Attach 2nd bow on the top of the wreath wrapping the pipe cleaner around the metal frame, and fluff out bow.
  • Attach 3rd bow on the left side of the wreath wrapping the pipe cleaner around the metal frame, and fluff out bow.
  • Take scissors and trim all the tails in to dovetails.
  • Take the 2.5" ribbon, measure out 7" tail, attach to wreath tie, make a loop, attach to wreath tie, and cut a 7" tail. Continue process and fill in all along the outside of the wreath.
  • Take the 1.5" ribbon, measure out 7" tail, attach to wreath tie, and cut a 7" tail. Alternate with 2.5" ribbon. Continue process and fill in all along the outside of the wreath.
  • Take your last 1.5" ribbon, make 7" tails, and fill in all the open spots.
  • Take (1) 2.5" ribbon and (2) 1.5" ribbon, and make tails. Take the 3 ribbons together, fold in half, scrunch in middle, and start placing them in the wreath with ends sticking outwards using a pipe cleaner and attaching to wreath form. Repeat and fill open spots. Fluff out tails.

See, didn’t this flip flop wreath turn out incredible? It makes me want to head to the pool or something–I’m ready for summer!
