Bow for Blue Braided Wreath

The Bow for the Blue Braided Wreath

I made a triple bow using two different ribbons. I wanted to repeat the color of the wreath, yet add some shimmery effect.

I used 32″ of Woven Shimmer in silver, 7/8″ wide and 32″ of Elenora, Royal/Silver, 3/8″ wide. I treated the ribbons as one, placing the smaller ribbon on top of the wider one. Long streamers are made from the same ribbons.

Here is a video about how to create the bow used to finish off the blue braided wreath in yesterday’s post.

I really like this wreath. The highlights on the satin ribbon add a lot of dimension to the design. It will look great for the holidays yet can be used throughout the winter months. You certainly could add small snowflake embellishments to the wreath. Be creative!

Our new Candy Cane Stripes ribbon would be really pretty in a braid. I would order the 7/8″ wide ribbon for a large wreath, or 3/8″ wide for small wreaths. I think I’ll try that next. If you try a different color or ribbon, please send us a photo to share.

Enjoy crafting!
