  • Poly Satin 7/8″ wide Mauve Ribbon

Instructions:

1. Begin with a twin bed-sheet and wire wreath form. I used the entire twin bed-sheet to make the wreath (it was amazing that I had exactly the right amount of fabric).

2. Using a quilting mat and rotary cutter I cut the bed-sheet into 3″ x 7″ strips.
