Simple Ribbon Wreath for Valentine's Day

I've been mentally creating this simple ribbon wreath for a while now.  With Valentine's Day now less than a month away, it seemed like the perfect time to bring it out of the abstract and finally craft it. 




I began with a simple embrodery hoop.  This gives you two rings, so you can create two wreaths with an expense of less than $4 for the bases.



Gather several spools of ribbon.  Differing colors, widths, and texture.



Cut the ribbon into 6 inch lengths.



Begin tying the ribbon onto the ring. 



Every so often slide the ribbon ties close together.  You want them nice and squished up together to get a full wreath.



Voila!  Easy peasy!  And adorable!
