St. Patty's Day Ribbon Wreath

I've been searching for a fun St. Patty's Day wreath for the front door. I havent seen anything around town that I really loved, so I decided I would make my own. Since we were supposed to get a big snow storm on Sunday (where we ended up getting a whopping 0.0 inches of snow) I decided I would make a wreath while being stuck inside. On Saturday, I dragged poor M to Hobby Lobby (which he has now decieded needs a men's lounge for all the poor fellas who get dragged into the store by their women. ha!) and we began searching around for what I was going to make. I really didnt have a plan when I went in the store; I thought I may take one of their pre-made wreaths and jazz it up a little bit, but then I noticed that all of their ribbon was 50% off.
I decided I would make a ribbon wreath since they seemed (by looking at pictures of them) pretty easy to make. I grabbed 4 different spools of ribbon which varied in thickness, material, and shades of green and then I grabbed a round foam wreath. I came home and cut the ribbon in 8-10 inch strips, about 20 strips of each ribbon.
I then began tying each piece of ribbon around the wreath and tied it into a double knot. I didnt follow a pattern with the colors; I just grabbed what was on the table and tied it onto the foam. It's SO super easy to do!!
One ribbon ended up having teal on the back, which I think added a nice color pop
Once finished, I painted a wooden "C" ( $2 at HL) and tied it onto the wreath some ribbon. I then added one of my thicker ribbons around the top and tied it to the door hanger. Seriously, such an easy project!

Happy Wreath Making,
