Photography by Jim Wieland

Materials

12 Inch Round Styrofoam Wreath Base

20 yards of Ribbon in a variety of prints

Pinking shears or rotary cutter with cutting mat

Straight pins

1-1/2- to 2-in.-wide ribbon for hanging

Instructions

Use pinking shears or a rotary cutter to cut fabric or ribbons into 1-1/2- x 4-1/2-in. strips.

For striped pattern, mark 2-1/2-in. sections around perimeter of ribbon wreath.

Use a different fabric pattern in each section. Repeat same fabric or ribbon every second or third section.

To attach fabric or ribbon strip, insert pin through center of strip with right side facing out and push into Styrofoam until head of pin is slightly embedded.

This will cause the fabric to project. Repeat, placing strips very close together until wreath is full.

To conserve pins, place two strips of fabric over each other in a cross shape before inserting pin.

To hang ribbon wreath, cut desired length of ribbon and fold in half.

Use pins to attach ends of ribbon to back of wreath, forming a loop for hanging.

ROSE QUARTZ & SERENITY – Color Trend 2016

It’s a twofer!

Pantone, which decides the color of the year, has decided to give the people more than they bargained for: two colors of the year.

The color authority ruled two baby-hued pastels would dominate the year, rose quartz and serenity.

“Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.” – Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute

This spring we’ll see some breathtaking wedding color ideas with these colors.

Rose quartz, as you can imagine, is a pretty pale pink while serenity is a baby blue.

Offray Ribbon

Offray’s Anisha Ribbon gives the look of silk at a fraction of the price!

Anisha’s beautiful color and loads of texture will enliven your springtime bouquets, arrangements and more.

Offray Double Face Satin

Offray’s High thread count Satin stands out with its opulent colors and elegant feel making it versatile for any occasion. Equally lovely on both sides.

We are so excited with these new colors; warm Rose Quartz and a soft Serenity blue are a breath of fresh air from past vivid colors such as Marsala and Radiant Orchid.


Twine Wrapped Mason Jars

So shabby chic!  We love it. Great idea for reception decor or for shower decor!

This project was so easy that you too can create your own with whatever kind of jar, twine and ribbon you want to use.

The supplies are few as all you need is some glue (either crazy glue or you can use a glue gun), ribbon, mason jars, flowers and of course, lots and lots of twine.

Here are a few of the steps I took to wrap the twine around the mason jars.

The most important part is obviously fastening the twine to the jar when you start and finish wrapping it around.

I also made sure to wrap the twine over and across the exact point where I glued the start of the twine to the glass.

This sort of anchored the twine to the glass and allowed me to wrap the twine sooner than it would have taken me if I had waited for the glue to dry.

Then you can make the twine sort of wrap around in a diagonal pattern over the first layer of twine.

I did this by wrapping the twine in a figure 8 pattern over and over again until I felt like it looked right.

And with that you can tie a pretty ribbon bow over both layers of twine to make the little jar flower-ready.

Add some baby’s breath, pink and white roses to complete the look.
