How to Make a Mini Home Wreath

Make Your Own Mini Home Wreath

This mini wreath is so perfect in so many ways. It is a great way to add decor for those tiny spaces. Imagine this in your child’s dorm room, amongst all those cute Polaroid pictures everywhere. Or even hanging on those skinny little doors of a cute little camper or travel trailer. Just because you are limited on space doesn’t mean you have to be limited on the design! This is the answer for MINI spaces if you will. 

Supplies

How to Make A Mini Home Wreath

Step 1: Prep your sign and remove any excess strings. Grab your hot glue gun and 2 of your cable mounts. Add mounts to the outer edges of the sign with a bit of hot glue to help secure.

Step 2: Let’s begin with our 12 cuts of your jute mesh at 20” long. Use your rotary cutter to cut straight on your work mat.  Set your pieces in a bundle on the side of your workspace for easy access.

Step 3: These mesh pieces want to naturally curl. Using that to my advantage, I rest one piece up against my stomach. Walk my hands together in the center, creating a ruffle bow tie look. Pinching together in the center, add mesh pieces along the outer edge of your wreath first with the pipe cleaners securing in place. 

Step 4: Repeat on the inner ring next. 

Step 5: Use a ribbon tail board and all of your ribbons. You will wrap 1 ribbon around 6 times for each of your 4 ribbons. They will measure about 13”. Cut on ends. Set your ribbons aside as you work to create your piles. 

Step 6: Be sure to dovetail those ribbon ends to give your piece a completed look. To dovetail, make sure ribbons are lined up, fold in half, and cut at a slant. 

Step 7: Once all cut, group your ribbons the way you want for your design. I chose my Cabana Stripe 2.5” Ribbon paired with the 1” Burlap Ribbon. Leaving my 2.5” Burlap with my 1.5” White Ribbon. I alternated my pairings as I stacked them in order in a pile for easy grabbing. This will help me as I work through the next steps of creating my wreath. 

Step 8: Bring your wreath form back over, and grab your first pair of ribbons from your stack. Fold in half and pinch in the middle. Add to your inner section first by twisting twice with pipe cleaner on your wreath base. Be sure to spread out your ribbon tails as you work. 

Step 9: Next repeat that step moving to the outer edge of your wreath frame. Make sure your Cabana Stripe is facing up and can be seen. It is too pretty to have hidden and it will add dimension to your design. Do not worry if your ribbon pieces match up in one section. It is totally fine.

Step 10: If you want to add a bow to your wreath now would be the time to do so.

Step 11: Grab your greenery bundle and cut it into sections so you have enough to add to every ribbon center in your outer ring of the wreath. Just simply hot glue ends and then insert in place. The pop of green will help break up all that brown and write on your wreath base.

Step 12: Bring your sign back over and weave your 2 pipe cleaners through the cable mounts. Twist one on each to secure it. Determine the middle of your sign and run the pipe clearance through the mesh and wrap the pipe cleaner around your work wreath frame. This makes it more secure. Don’t pull too tight until you have both sides on. Twist until it is nice and tight, but not too tight that it will flatten the mesh base. 

Step 13: Adjust your ribbon tails, making sure your burlap stripe is popping out.
