The day has come for our summer soiree in honor of Kate Spade!
So, I hope you wearing a little bit of Kate Spade green today along with some sort of polka dot or bow or let’s face it both in honor of our link party.
Here is a special project I worked on for today’s party.
Inspired by Kate Spade I decided that my entry way door needed a little sprucing up.
Doesn’t the color combo of orange, pink and kelly green totally scream Kate Spade? I think so and it happens to working perfectly in my living room.
All of these supplies can be found at your local craft store. I went with 2.5″ wide grosgrain ribbon, but you can use whatever width you would like.
Step 1: It’s best to leave the plastic wrapping on your straw wreath. Simply dab some hot glue on the wreath and adhere the starting point for your ribbon.
Step 2: Wrap ribbon around wreath and make sure to overlap the ribbon so that there is no part of the straw wreath showing.
Step 3: Cut a piece of felt in whatever width you like. Then use the ribbon piece you have cut and glue the ends together to make a circle.
Step 4: Pinch the circle in the middle to form a bow and get some nice dimples in the middle of the bow. Then tighten center of bow with either floral wire or thread.
Step 5: Cut a smaller piece of felt and glue it the center of bow to cover up the threading/wire.
Step 6: In order to hang it use a piece of a ribbon in a contrasting color. Fold the piece of ribbon in half and loop it through the wreath.
Step 7: Glue the bow to the contrasting ribbon.
Step 8: At the ends of the ribbon cut hold for hanging. Use a lighter to burn the edges so it doesn’t fray.
Step 9: Place a command hook upside down on the back of the door that you want to hang your wreath and then place ribbon up and over door and wreath with fit perfectly on the front of the door and your door will still close perfectly.
