Hi Everyone

Todays blog is going to be different to my other blogs. I am going to show you all a video tutorial on how to make a ribbon wreath for christmas using our gorgeous sage green satin ribbon.

I have been demonstrating this ribbon wreath over the weekend at the Big Stamp and Scrapbooking Show at Alexander Palace over the weekend and all the customers loved the idea. I promised them all that I would upload a tutorial on how to make the wreath, so here it is. . . hope you like it :)

I have finished off the wreath with a simple ribbon bow made from red grosgrain ribbon. All the papers used for this design are part of the Pepper Christmas Party Collection pack which i bought last year from a craft show.

So have a go and try it with different colours of ribbon, I’ve used 10mm wide sage green ribbon because at the moment its my favourite colour. If you get a chance send in a pic by e-mail of your finished wreath, I would love to see your final design.

    Hi Mei

    What a brilliant tutorial – very different and effective. I must have a go and as you suggest use different colours, although I do like your sage green ribbon. Your products are always first class along with your service.

    Take care

    have made two wreaths one in sage green ribbon and one with red ribbon and they are so easy following the tutorial. I shall be teaching it to some ladies i see at a small village craft club. Thank you so much

    Hi, thank you so much for the ideas yesterday in Belfast Craft Fair, I loved the hairband idea and the Christmas wreath – I thought the green ribbon and red ribbon would make lovely covers for cheap napkin rings for your Christmas table or other colours for more contempory. I was making a wreath last night just to make sure I had the technique right.

    Thanks again Heather

    I’ve just made this using lilac ribbon and attatching it to a headband, using double sided tape, it looks great.

    I had a go at your stand at the Hobbycraft exhibition in Glasgow SSEC at the weekend, bought the ribbon from you and couldn’t wait to try it out! Now just need to knit a matching jumper for my wee girl with the yarn I bought on the same day!

  15. Jeannie says:

    Lovely wreath. I will have to try this.

  16. Valerie Marshall says:

    Watched your demo at the NEC went home practised it then went to my usual crafting class and showed my class mates how to do it. By the way loved your demo and your other cards.

  17. Sylvia King says:

    Watched your demo at Bluewater and you were very patient with me. You had to show me several times and then you kindly let me have a go and I have been practising ever since. It’s very clever and beautiful. Thank you.

    Hi Mei
    Thank you so much for sending the details of this fab use of ribbon. I could only spend a short time at the Craft Show on Sunday but I am so pleased I found you.

  19. Jan B says:

    Very clear and understandable instructions which is great as I can’t do written ones.

  20. Ellen Payne says:

    Thank you so much for the wreath demo I am buying ribbon tomorrow to try it. Thanks

  21. Donna says:

    Hi Mei

    That looks so easy to do yet so complicated to the untrained eye. Thanks im off to give it a go :)


  22. Mei says:

    Don’t worry Donna it’s easy, once you get going you won’t stop!

  23. Cathlene Riley says:

    Hi Mei brought the ribbon from you at Harrogate to make the wreath. You had made a two colour one can you tell me how you did that please. Love your blog. Many thanks Cathlene. Crafty hugs sent to you. Xx

  24. Mei says:

    Hi Cathlene, I’ll be posting a video soon on how to do that !

    Hi Shabana, You showed me how to plait the ribbon in the Newcastle show on 20 Oct 2012 and I was paying attention, as I have made some large, some small and one with two colours since getting home. I love them and wanted to thank you so much for your patience and time in sharing your expertise with others. The large wreath I made looks lovely in green and red and very Christmas like. I will be showing your craft to my sister who lives in Australia, via Skype when she calls later today. *****

    I have now been able to show my sister how clever you are. She is delighted with your work and says thank you for sharing.
