We love wreaths here at DIY beautify! A beautiful wreath is always a perfect finishing touch! 

Would you believe me if I told you that I found this striped canvas ribbon at Walmart?

I know, amazing, right? This striped ribbon has a farmhouse look; it even looks like twill, but it's thinner and is wired, which is perfect for keeping the 'bubbles' in this wreath looking full.

I've been so happy to see more selection and specialty-type products showing up on the shelves at Walmart...from home decor to food stuffs. So if you're a Walmart-hater, stop it! Go check out all the new merchandise! (I'm not even being paid to say that, I'm just a happy consumer!).

Okay, so on to this little farmhouse wreath.

Blue and white striped farmhouse wreath

I love blue and white, that is no secret! I gave my  guest room a blue and white makeover, added blue and white thrifted dishes to my black hutch and recently made an easy stenciled transferware sign. So a blue and white wreath was definitely a necessity in my home!

Let me show you how easy it is to make this wreath. One of the reasons I love to blog is because it satisfies something in my soul to inspire show you how to create something beautiful that creates warmth and homey-ness (is that a word?) in your home!

This farmhouse wreath is the perfect example! It's quick, easy, cheap (shh) and beautiful! All you need to make this wreath is a couple spools of ribbon and a wreath form.

Supplies needed for farmhouse wreath:

Update: the ribbon I used is no longer available, but here are a few other similar ones. Click  herehere, here and here. This ribbon is so popular, it is sold out a lot of places. Here is another one. Here is the same ribbon in black and white stripe, that would be gorgeous too!

That's it friends, that's all you need to make this sweet wreath! You can see that this wreath cost right around $10, tax included!

How to make a simple farmhouse wreath:

I think the proper name for this type of wreath design is a 'bubble wreath'. I've made them before using burlap and they are always impressive. The wreath only looks challenging, it's really very simple.

Rather than go step by step through the process, I'm going to direct you to this video that explains it beautifully. Don't worry, it's only a 2-minute video!

I follow the same basic steps to make my wreaths, with a couple differences: I don't twist my ribbon, I don't really see the need for that step. I just alternate where I poke it through the wreath form so that it doesn't pop back out.

I also didn't use any wire. I found it easiest to just leave enough of a tail at the beginning and end of the ribbon so that when the wreath is finished, I tucked those edges over and under the wire at the back to secure.

You can see above that one roll of ribbon was enough to finish a little more than half the wreath.You really don't want to skimp on the ribbon; the goal is to create a full wreath with no wire showing through.

But don't pull your loops too big or you will need to run back to Walmart for more ribbon! My bubbles are about 1 to 1-1/2" high.

The beauty of using wired ribbon is that you can fluff and primp your 'bubbles' to make them even fuller and to disguise the metal showing through from the wreath form!

I was left with enough ribbon on my second roll to create a matching bow for my wreath.

And with that, this farmhouse ribbon wreath was finished! I hung it on this chippy old window that came from a church in Tennessee.

If I've inspired you today to see what you can make with only 10 bucks and a few minutes of your time, I have accomplished my goal!

  10. Have you ever done a wreath like this but with regular fabric? I have some fabric that I want to cut in strips and do like this. But I'm nervous. Will it still work without the wire?

    1. Yes,just posted
      To ensure your bubbles stay full looking, choose a stiffer fabric!

  11. How many yards of ribbon do you need to make this?!

    1. Sorry but I don't remember how many yards were on each roll, I used 2 rolls of ribbon. I would guess maybe 4-5 though.
