I've been making more Christmas decorations, this time, mini Christmas wreaths.
I've tied grosgrain ribbon around a metal ring using a half square knots, and added large jingle bells and grosgrain bows to embellish the mini wreaths.
And I've used a short length of bakers twine to hang each of them up.
I sold my first hand made items at the age of 10 to a gift shop in Mudgee. These hand made items were all little macrame Christmas decorations. One of the decorations was very similar to these modern-day ribbon macrame Christmas wreaths.
These are very easy to make... a great Christmas activity for the kids too.
Edited in 2012... If you would like to make some of these weaths, I have kits available. They have the supplies to make 3 wreaths (3 rings, jingle bells, ribbon, bows and baker's twine). All you will need is the hot glue gun or other adhesive to attach the bows. The kits are available at Ribbons Galore.
