Designer Carole Janson made a sweet ribbon wreath to coordinate with her daughter's bedding. {how perfect is that?!!} This wreath would be darling made in traditional Christmas colors too!

Step 2:
 Using a Wreath about 20 to 25 cm in diameter, mine is white in color then tie the ribbons one by one around the wreath, to make sure the ribbon stays in position use your Glue Arts Glue Gun to glue into place.

Step 3:
 To create the Big Bow, cut out a pieces of Ribbon 30 Inches long and tie into a Bow, for the middle of the bow, use a coordinating piece of ribbon, about 2 inches long, and wrap around the center, then stick the ribbon into place with the Fabric Bond and then iron into place, and stick to the wreath with the Glue Arts Glue Gun.

Step 4:
 You can add extra pieces of ribbon where needed to fill in the caps on the wreath

The Decorative Wreath coordinated so well with Sarah's Bedroom Quilt it looks like it was made for it lol !! lets just say she loves it.

Headband Rosettes

Designer Into: I used the May Arts ribbon to make some holiday themed rosettes. I decided to make a Christmas one, and a more Fall themed one, but really can be worn through the year.

I used my Glue Arts hot glue gun for the entire project.

After I wrapped a headband in May Arts ribbon, I glued the 2 rosettes and bow onto a piece of felt. I then added some velcro the back of the felt, as well as to the headband.
Make sure to glue the velcro on both the headband and the felt at equidistant spots so when you attach it, it will meet up exactly.
After it is dried (which is quickly), simply attach.
I did the same thing for the Fall inspired rosette set. Make note of which side you need for the velcro so it sticks.
Really, I can't wait to put more color combos together! It is so quick and easy - and really cute:)
