Wreath Chandelier project


What you need:
*       1 - 22-inch wreath (real or artificial)
*       1 - 28-inch wreath (real or artificial)
*       60feet of wired ribbon (approximately)
*       Scissors
*       Tape Measure


Cut three ribbons approximately five feet in length. Then, with the small wreath's wire frame facing up, slip one end of a ribbon length through the frame's rim. Knot firmly. Repeat with the two additional ribbons, knotting at evenly spaced intervals around the wreath. Then gather the ribbons together and knot at a point 15 inches above the center of the wreath.

Attach three ribbons approximately 6 1/2-feet in length to the larger wreath frame, knotting each one at evenly spaced intervals around the wreath. Gather the ribbons together and knot at a point 20 inches above the center of the wreath. Knot at the ends of the hanger ribbons.



Place the larger wreath on top of the smaller wreath, aligning the hanger ribbons. The knot created by the hanger ribbons of the smaller wreath should be in the same plane as the larger wreath. Gather the hanger ribbons of both wreaths and knot them 20 inches above the center of the larger wreath. Trim the ends of the hanger ribbons above the top knot.

Hang the wreaths from the top hanger-ribbon knot. Tie a four-foot ribbon length at the base of each hanger ribbon; fashion each into a classic bow or, for ease, use bow ornaments.
