I've been eyeing those ribbon wreaths on Pinterest... they look like a ton of work. Let me tell you, they are. I was completely suckered in by a St Pat's day sample I saw -"oh, look! I can do that! they want $100 for this one! that's nuts!"
Well. You can't pay me $100 to make another one.
First, I cut all the ribbon and tied it. Then I realized I'd cut all the ribbon twice as long as it needed to be.
So I untied it all and cut it in half. Because that's fun.
I used a mixture of these floral pins, some T-Pins I stole from my mom, and regular pins.
Partly because I knew I wouldn't have enough pins, and partly in an attempt to save time, I tied two ribbons to some of the floral pins. In case you are wondering, it did not save time.
By this time, I was considering tossing the whole thing. It took forever, and I'm not super happy with it. It actually looks cuter in the picture than in real life. With the 1/2 price ribbon, and the coupon for my Styrofoam wreath, and little clovers & pipe (the leprechaun came from my mom's stash),
I spent less than $30.
