The best ribbon for wreaths – ever wonder where we find all the fantastic ribbon used in our ribbon wreaths? Here are the seven shops we love and recommend for ribbon supplies.
Hey y’all…everyone loved our wreath making tools post so much that we wanted to share more insider tips with you. Lots of you ask us where we buy the best ribbon for wreaths.
I get it. It can be overwhelming to shop for ribbon online. Can you trust them? Will the ribbon arrive feeling and looking cheap? Well, we know a thing or two about buying lots (and lots!) of ribbon.
In fact, since wreaths with ribbon are a main staple of what we create, we are pretty particular about which ribbon we personally use (and thus recommend). In this post, we’ll let you in on our secret stashes and share where we buy our ribbon.
The Best Ribbon For Wreaths
When you are making a wreath, the type of ribbon you use matters. You want something that will hold its shape and has vibrant, eye-catching colors and prints.
You also need wired ribbon in long lengths that you can cut down to size. You’ll be using a lot of it as you make handmade bows for your wreaths.
When you are looking for wreath ribbon online, just refer to this list. We shop at just a select few places online. All of these online shops have amazing customer service, sell high-quality ribbon, and carry unique colors and prints.
The Best Cheap Ribbon
First, an important note about pricing. If the ribbon on these sites is cheap ribbon, that doesn’t mean it feels cheap or will fall apart. It just means it’s a low price and you’ll save money. Believe me, I only recommend the very best. 😉
There is plenty of inexpensive ribbons out that we wouldn’t recommend, along with a lot of higher price-point ones. The cost doesn’t matter as much to me, as long as the product is excellent. You’re likely to see a good variety of costs within these shops so that you can choose what works for you.
Best Place to Buy Bulk Ribbon
Craftpreneurs, this is for you! You need a lot of ribbons to make all the wreaths you sell. Buying in bulk makes the most sense.
These are the best places to get low prices on ribbons in large quantities.
Of course, the best place to buy bulk ribbon is right on over at the DecoExchange. We sell just about everything you need in large quantities. You’ll find wired ribbon in the following quantities:
