How to Make a Tailored Bow Fall Wreath

by Jen Kilbourne

Easy DIY wreath with classy hydrangeas and neat bow


  • Twig wreath
  • Faux hydrangeas
  • Ribbon
  • Glue gun
  • Wreath hanger
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Gather your hydrangeas, wreath, wide ribbon, hot glue gun, and scissors.

    Step 2

    Cut hydrangeas from the stems and hot glue as desired.

    Step 3

    This is canvas ribbon with gold chevron pattern. Because it is one-sided, follow my steps to make the tailored bow.

    Step 4

    I cut lengths of ribbon 17", 21", and 25". Make a loop with each one with 1" overlap and staple each separately. Then, hot glue each layer together from biggest to smallest.

    Step 5

    Cut a piece of ribbon 4" long and fold inward to make the center loop for the bow.

    Step 6

    Pinch the bow to gather as shown. Wrap the center loop tightly around the middle, hot gluing each end.

    Step 7

    The hot glue was a bit messy for the bow to lay correctly, so I used a paper clip I had on hand to secure the bow to the wreath hanger after hanging the wreath just right.

    Step 8

    That's it!
