Update to “Everyday Wreath Tutorial”

I’ve been staring at my wreath. Tilting my head. Closing my eyes then opening them again. Trying to figure out what I could do to make it look more proportional. (Original Tutorial Here)

Well, I think I got it! I added a few more flowers to the bottom part of the flowers I already had.  Then I added individual bow loops to each side of the bow. Two to each side to be exact. I feel like it adds more depth and volume to the bow, allowing it to look bigger!

I simply cut a few inches of ribbon, hot glued to the two ends together in a folded kind of way, and once it cooled off, placed and glued them on the sides of the bow already on the wreath.

You might have to play around with it a little bit until you get a good looking bow! It took me about 20 minutes to place the extra bow loops in a way that looked like they were already included in the bow. Take your time! Make it look good! 🙂

The last think I did was add 2 extra ribbon tails, longer than the original ones to the bow. I believe those also give the bow a larger appearance, helping with the proportion to the wreath.

I just measured how long I wanted the new ribbon tails to be, cut them and then tucked and glued them underneath the original tails.

Pretty simple little adjustments that I think make the wreath look so much better!

Remember through all your crafts and projects to have fun! And if you don’t like how something looks, then change it! 🙂
