Easy Christmas Crafts: Braided Ribbon Wreath Ornament


This Easy Christmas Crafts braided ribbon wreath ornament uses just three pieces of ribbon along with your fingers for a fast, fun, easy and inexpensive ornament.

Three pieces of ribbon, that's all you need to make this fun and easy ornament.

This easy Christmas crafts project can be fun for young and old alike. It can be an ornament, an addition to a pretty package or a small keepsake gift.

If you prefer, you can add a yarn or ribbon loop for hanging on a tree or attaching to a package.

Learn to braid quickly and you can make this braided ribbon wreath ornament faster than it takes to read the instructions.

Easy Christmas Crafts: Braided Ribbon Wreath Ornament Materials and Tools:

  • Three pieces of ribbon 1/4 inch wide by 12 to 14 inches long
  • Scissors
  • Ruler

I used three different ribbons with similar red and green colors in each ribbon.

The wreath would also be pretty made with three ribbons of different colors or three ribbons of the same color.

The Steps for How to Make the Easy Christmas Crafts: Braided Ribbon Wreath Ornament:

Cut the three ribbon lengths.

The completed wreath shown above used ribbons 12 inches long.

The example steps below use ribbons of 14 inches long.

I prefer the smaller wreath for the 1/4 inch wide ribbons.

The longer length would be better for wider ribbons, for example, 3/8 inch wide.

Secure the ribbons together with a knot 1 1/2 inches from the end.

Separate the three ribbons with one to the right, one in the middle and one to the left as shown here.

As the braid nears two inches from the end, tie a knot into the braid to secure the ribbons.

Insert the end knot in the braid through a loop in the braid adjacent to the beginning knot.

This picture shows the knot pulled through for illustration purposes.

It shouldn't be pulled that far.

Next, insert the beginning knot through a loop in the braid adjacent to the end knot.

Inserting the knots into the braid form the circle for the braided ribbon wreath ornament.

For the 1/4 inch wide ribbon, I prefer the smaller of the two sizes.

The smaller wreath holds its shape better with the narrow ribbon.

A wider ribbon would be better for the larger wreath ornament.
