Hey, Lori here!

I am so stinking excited to show you this sign by my cubbie Rachel with RachelCraftyCorner. She is so good at painting! You guys know I can’t paint my way out of a bucket. 

Tonight we are going to do 30″ ruffles with our mesh. We are going to use this fun white mesh with this foil red going through it. Then we will add this snowball drift mesh to balance the red and white and really make it pop with the white and greens.

I pre-cut all my materials with my Susie Mesh roller.  We are going to alternate them starting with the red first then the white. When doing a ruffle you want to take your fingers and just walk it up kind of like a tickle, keeping your thumbs in the center pushing forward. 


We will do this all the way around all 18 ties. After we are finished with the mesh we will add our ribbons I like to pair my colors so we are going to add the pops of green cause our sign has some green in it. I cut the ribbon 12-inches using my perfect tails. 

Taking the ribbon we will mix and match patterns together. When adding the ribbons we will fold it in half creating that center crease and where that crease is we will pinch it into the center and pulling the ribbon so it creates a nice bird-like shape. We will put it right into our ties and twist it up. 

After the ribbons are added we will move on to our bow. Using our EZ bow maker we are going to start with 8 inch tail pinching the center and then adding it into the bow maker. 

TIP: When making bows make sure you have enough slack in your ribbon it will really make a difference for you.

After you have placed your ribbon in the center you will twist and have that ugly side of the ribbon showing then come back around creating that loop and pinching that down to the bow maker, doing two loops on each side with this first ribbon choice. 

Adding the second ribbon we are going to do the same thing but making this tail longer around 12″. We will pinch and twist the ugly side up and then making a loop only wanting to do one of this ribbon choice on each side. 

As we are building our bow I want to take the ribbons in each time starting around 6″ inches and then going down to around 5″ inches. The third ribbon choice will match up to our bottom ribbon. I love this bow maker because I can move my ribbons around as I go. 

When you are working with your bow maker make sure you have a hammer around in your craft room sometimes when you are working with a thicker ribbon your bowmaker tends to separate. Just take that hammer and pound those pegs back in. Make sure with your EZ bow maker you have that small peg in the front this helps this from separating. 

After we have our bow we are going to add it to our wreath and fluff it out and trim the tails. Slipping my zip tie under the bow and not pulling it all the way yet because we are going to add a pipe cleaner to this so we can attach it to the wreath frame.

When I go under the edges of the ribbon where that wire is and fluff it out. This is a big reason why I encourage wire ribbon. If you have one that is twisted work it out and keep taking the fingers and fluffing it. 

The long tails I will curl up and then let them fall and dangle down. You can cut dovetails at an angle away from you. Many ways to leave the tails.  I just love bows! 

Last steps! We are going to take our sign and attach pipe cleaners to the back of the sign with my 1/4″ staples and then I will also take my hammer and hammer those into the back. Make sure your staples won’t come thought the other side of your sign. 

I will then take the pipe cleaners and attach them to the back of the wreath right to the bar of the wreath frame. If you have to add some length to the pipe cleaners you can. 

SHAKE test! Here you have it this beautiful North Pole wreath perfect for Christmas! Thanks for reading you can check out the video on my YouTube Channel.
