This time of year is so busy! All the shopping, decorating and DIY-ing has really stepped up for us now. While decorating this year, I knew I needed quite a few more items since I moved into a new home last spring and don’t have the stash of decor I need! My husband and I have recently bought our first couch (Hooray for being adults now!) and with that couch came six new pillows! I was so happy! Except the fabric wasn’t really my style. So with my newly acquired sewing skills, I proceeded to make holiday pillow covers for them!
Anyway, while making the pillows, I had quite a bit of fabric left over that I knew I could create some more decor with.
These pretty little wreath ornaments is what I came up with. And let me tell you, they are extreeemmmmmley easy. Seriously – cut, tie, glue and your done!
Here is what you will need:
- Small Grapevine wreath forms
- Ticking Stripe Fabric or Ribbon
- Rotary cutter (or Scissors)
- Cutting Mat
- Hot Glue Gun
Gather all those materials up and start cutting your fabric, we cut ours to about an inch wide and about 10 – 12 inches long. You can always cut the ends shorter after the bow is tied if they are too long.
Then tie your ribbons into a bow! I used the two bunny ears method to tie the bow and they turned out pretty straight! I didn’t care that the fabric got turned wrong side out for part of the bow because you could hardly tell, but when choosing your bow you may want to consider that.
Once all bows are tied you can then grab your glue gun and put a dab on the backside of your bow – right in the middle. Then just add it to your wreath form!
Ta-da! All done! The easiest DIY Christmas Ornaments ever! And aren’t they super cute. And it ties the whole living room together. My ticking stripe pillows from the couch now match the tree! And I got to use up some of the extra fabric I had leftover too.

Interesting idea! These small wreaths are a very cute and add a rustic look to the Christmas tree.
