Shabby Ribbon Valentine Wreath Tutorial

Above is the first shabby wreath I made to coordinate with Grab A Cup Valentine and the Tea Party Card. Ribbon for this project is from Michaels.

Below I am going to show you a traditional red/white heart.
Step 1: Make your heart form.
I used paper wrapped flower stems (what I had on hand) you can use a coat hanger or wire.

Step 2: Secure your heart form with floral tape.

Step Three: Cut your ribbon to 6" Lengths.
Step Four: Start tying on your ribbon, leaving no space between ties.

For the center I had some heart shape make your own ornaments I filled the one below with heart shape ribbon. Would also look really cute with colored sugar, red hots etc.
Step 5: Tie on your center focal point, this tie also becomes your hanger.
Here is the finished Ribbon Valentine Wreath, this one will hang on our cabinet;)
