Burlap Ribbon Wreath


This project is so simple.
All I did was take a grapevine wreath and loop some wired burlap ribbon all around it.  I did secure it in a few places with some hot glue.  Then I tucked (stuck) some artificial leaves and berries .

I would admit that this is hardly worth blogging about.....unless I had a tip to share!
AND....

Do I have a tip for you!
That tip is about where to buy your wired ribbon on the cheap!

Oh, you could order a 10 yard spool from Ballard Designs and pay $20 plus shipping!


But that seems pretty silly when you can buy a 50 Yard spool at COSTCO for $6.99!


The wired ribbon at CostCo is a seasonal thing.
It is something that is worth stocking up on.....

And this year they have burlap....needless to say I bought a couple of spools.

I restrained myself from buying the Christmas styles as I already have quite a stash from years past....

Although...the shiny red satin did call to me!!





 Using all that ribbon to make bows is one of my favorite ways to dress things up.

 This bow is a lovely accent to a fall arrangement made by one of the guests at the latest Sweetwater Floral Consultants Sip and Snip.

Then head over to CostCo and get your own ribbon stash started!

Have A Wonderful Day!
