I apparently committed a blogging faux pas when I didn't link back to projects properly so, here is a link to the pin on my Pinterest board and here is a link to the actual post where I originally saw the ribbon wreath.
Thanks for stopping by!
I finally finished it.
What is it?
My ribbon wreath, of course.
Oh? You didn’t know I was making a ribbon wreath?
Well, I was, but I'm not anymore because I quit.
I kid, I kid!
53 years, 7 months, 12 days, 3 hours, 11 minutes, 58 seconds and 260 or so glue gun burns later I have a beautiful orange and black ribbon wreath.
And I do mean beautiful!
First, I cut approximately 3 thousand, give or take, 4-5 inch strips of ribbon. Just look at all that fabulousness.
Then I glued each and every one of them into loops. The trick is to leave this little tail for gluing to the flat surface. Trust me, the first one I made did NOT turn out the way I had intended. The tails will save your life.
Now, I couldn’t use any ordinary “O” (I realize some people might call this a wreath form or a circle, but I like to call it an O), I had to cut out the Oklahoma State O. Seriously, I had to. It was calling to me.
So, this + …
… this mountain of fabulousness = …
I love it! I really love it! Times a million.
And I finished it just in time for our next game this coming Saturday against KU.
Oh, and this is my first completed item from my Pinterest Craft Board. Yippee!
I feel so accomplished.
