Okay, y’all. I’m not always a pastel fan, but when it’s springtime I cling to my motto — go big or go home. Whether you love pastels or not, you have to admit there’s something very spring-appropriate about them.
As you can see, I didn’t hold back on pastels for this chick wreath, but it makes the entire piece perfect for this season!
How to Make a Spring Chick Wreath
This wreath is made on my standard 15-inch wreath form, and the base layer is 30″ mesh added on top. Then, I’ll show you how to layer not one, not two, not three…but seven different ribbons on top! Lastly, we’ll add this adorable mason jar chick.
Check out the supply list below, then craft your own chick wreath alongside me with the video!
How to Make a Bow using the Pro Bow
- Sort out what ribbons you will be using. Measure out 4 pieces of floral wire about 24-inches each. Cut the floral wire with your wire cutters.
- Let's start with our first ribbon. Measure out about 7-inches for the tail. Take a wire and fold it in half, give it a pinch around the ribbon, and we're going to tie it off. Wrap the ribbon around your center peg. Pinch on the bottom peg, twist, and tie it off on the top.
- Now that you have your center loop, you'll need to add your second wire. Fold the wire in half and work it through.
- Take your 2.5" ribbon, trim into a dovetail, Measure out about 7-inches for the tail. Take a wire and fold it in half, give it a pinch around the ribbon, and we're going to tie if off. Wrap the ribbon around the next peg. Pinch on the bottom peg, twist, and loop on the other side. Cut the dovetail. Tie off with the wire.
- Repeat the step above until all the pegs are used working your way outwards from the center peg. Once you're done, tie off, unwrap the first wire from the top and bottom from when you first started. Take off your bow from the Pro Bow.
- Take your fluff box, place the bow in the center and wrap the wires on the side hooks to keep it in place. Fluff out your bow, start with the outside and work your way to the center.
- Repeat the full process to make 2 more bows.
