Wire Wreathing at Its Best

Bloggers, meet my front door. Not bad, right?  
However, this weekend is birthday party weekend.
And birthday parties typically require special front door decoration.

So, I got one of these.

It's a wire wreath frame. I got this one at Michael's for under $5, but I've also seen them at Hobby Lobby, Wally World, and on E-bay.  The one I got measures sixteen inches in diameter, which is just perfect for my front door.

Then I got some of this:

The ribbon came from Wal-Mart. It's indoor/outdoor ready, which is great but definetly not mandatory.
For this project I used a roll and a half, and they were about $4 each. You can also use fabric, but whatever you use, I suggest choosing something that's between two and three inches wide. The wider the ribbon, the less work for you. Less work=good.
I then cut the ribbon into strips that were about  six inches long.
 I didn't measure them....they do NOT have to be perfect (I love projects like that).
Then I took the cut ribbon and tied it with just  a simple knot all around the wreath.
I did this in about an hour and a half...while watching tv...and dealing with a fussy baby.
So if I can do it, you can too.

Want to see the finished product?

THIS is what party-goers will see on Saturday:

Cute, right?

To personalize it for the party, I added this six and taped it to a doile. I plan on removing this after the party and reusing the wreath in January...for the OTHER birthday party. I might also add some red and use it for Valentine's Day...or something Eastery and use it then as well....

Mama likey.

Try your best to contain yourselves and come back soon...more party goodies are headed your way.
