Materials to Make a Ribbon Wreath for Baby

  • Two different patterns of ribbon (I used one 5/8 inch satin ribbon and one 7/8 inch satin ribbon)
  • Twine or elastic cord ribbon

  • One cardstock piece
  • Printer and Pen

Directions on How to Make a Ribbon Wreath for Baby

  1. First, print out this onesie design from Lee Hansen Graphics.
  2. Cut out the onesie from the paper; you’ll want to use this onesie clipart as a stencil. How to Make a Ribbon Wreath for Baby
  3. Trace the onesie stencil onto the cardboard piece.
  4. Cut out the onesie from the cardboard piece using your scissors.
  5. Decorate your onesie. For me, I just placed a baby bottle sticker on the front. What is a great idea is to have the future baby’s siblings leave a message for the new born baby on the onesie. Once you are finished decorating, set this part aside for later.
  6. Start adding ribbon to your wreath by tying one ribbon pattern then tying the other onto the wreath foam. There is no glue needed; just keep tying as tightly as possible without damaging the foam. Also, you’ll want the pieces to be a similar size. Due to the nature of the wreath, the size of the stripes do not have to be the same, just as close as possible. In addition, you’ll want to keep the size of the knots the same (not some too tight, and some too loose). Just be as consistent as possible. But remember, just like a baby, this wreath doesn’t have to be perfect. How to Make a Ribbon Wreath for Baby
  7. Continue to go around the wreath and tie knots of the ribbon until you are completely around. I placed the wreath in between my lap to make it easy to turn and tie. I would recommend the same. How to Make a Ribbon Wreath for Baby How to Make a Ribbon Wreath for Baby
  8. Once the ribbon is completely finished (takes about an hour roughly), you’ll want to take a moment and marvel at how it looks. Go ahead! How to Make a Ribbon Wreath for Baby
  9. With a simple knot, tie curling ribbon onto the top of the wreath. This will be how your wreath will hang. Curl each side of the ribbon with scissors. How to Make a Ribbon Wreath for Baby
  10. With your glue gun, glue on the elastic cord or twine across your wreath. You’ll want to distinguish which side is the front and which side is the back of your wreath before doing so. Once you decide on which side is the front, turn over the wreath and glue the elastic band or twine across the wreath (creating a clothesline effect). How to Make a Ribbon Wreath for Baby
  11. Glue on your onesie from Step 5 onto your elastic chord or twine clothesline. Simply, glue two dots on each arm and press down firmly. Hold to set the glue. How to Make a Ribbon Wreath for Baby
  12. Lastly, glue on any embellishments like my “Sweet Baby” 3D stickers to add the final touches. You could add a “Welcome” sign instead, but I decided to go with Sweet Baby, since the wreath can then be used to adorn the baby’s nursery after the Baby Shower.
