Spring Chevron Wreath Tutorial

I am SOOOOO ready for spring! 
We were teased with temps in the 60s this weekend and then it snowed 3 inches Monday afternoon. BLAH!! 
But when it was warm I got my craft on making a fun spring wreath to hopefully encourage the weather to warm up. 
 I am super thrilled with how it came out and it was a fast, east project too! 
Here’s how to make it.
Supplies:
-Wreath Form
-Chevron Ribbon 
(I bought mine at Hobby Lobby but I know sites like Very Jane or Groopdealz sometimes have them.)
-Styrofoam Eggs
-Burlap
-Floral Pins
-Hot Glue Gun

To start, I wrapped the entire wreath form in burlap.
I then unwrapped all the ribbon spools and pinned down the ribbon in four spots, equally spaced. I will say I pinned them at 12, 3, 6, and 9 like on a clock. 
You could also just cover the wreath with one ribbon at a time but I just wanted to make sure they were spaced out correctly so there wouldn’t be a gap somewhere just in case the ribbon ran out.
After I pinned the start of each ribbon onto the form, I wrapped one ribbon at a time, pinning as I made the loops (just like I did with my Fall Burlap Wreath).
I started with yellow, then blue, the pink, and lastly green and filled in any areas that needed more fluff as I went. 
By using the pins, you can always pull them out and readjust the ribbon as you go or even start totally over if need be, which by the way, I needed too. 😉
I then wanted to add some eggs to make it good for Easter but didn’t want to make them a permanent fixture on the wreath.
 In order to achieve that, I used the floral pins and pushed one end into the egg and out the other side. Depending on how I wanted to the egg to lay, depended on where and how I placed the pin. This yellow one, I wanted it to stand up to hide the pins from the other eggs so I inserted the pin in the very bottom.
I clustered all the eggs together for the biggest impact on the busy ribbon.
I did place a little bit of hot glue on the end of the pins so when I pushed them in they would stay pretty well in windy CO. 
I didn’t place much though so I will still be able to pull them out if I want to extend the use of the wreath.
I love how it came out! 🙂 
So bright and cheery for spring! 
Here is a closer shot of the ribbon and how I weaved them together.
The eggs look good on the ribbon as well. 
And the wreath pops off our front door too! 
Now come on Spring!! 
I am READY for ya!

    You make this sound so easy! I don't know that I could make the "loops" as pretty and conforming as you do, but I may just have to give it a try. Thanks for sharing.
