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

Cut two lengths of the sheer gold-edged ribbon each 36 inches long.

This example uses two different colors of sheer ribbon, one peach and one brown, with wide gold edges.

Cut one length of the 1/4-inch ribbon 12 inches long.

Thread the needle and add a knot in one end of the thread.

Place the two sheer ribbons one on top of the other.

Begin the first row of stitches roughly 1/4-inch from the end and 5/8-inch from one edge.

The second row of stitches will be 5/8-inch from the opposite edge making a 1/4-inch channel in the middle.

This project uses the basic running stitch. It's a fast and easy stitch.

If you would like more help with the running stitch, go to the funEZ How to sew stitches page to get your own free e-book.

Sew with the running stitches the length of the two ribbons.

At roughly 1/4-inch from the end, knot and trim the thread.

Begin sewing the second row of stitches parallel to the first.

There should be a 1/4-inch space between the two rows.
