DIY Holiday Care Package!

This one is really special to me. I love packing care packages for my mom. She is not always able to get out and go get certain things she needs from the store. And of course, because I am a mom I have to pack her cozy socks, gloves, and a scarf. As stated in the video, when she opens the Christmas present she is going to cry. This is just an idea of what you can pack your loved ones over the Holiday season.

DIY Holiday Wreath

What you are going to need:

Glue gun
Ribbon (I used 1″ & 7/8″ ribbon)
Cut the ribbon into 24+ 36″ strips (I used satin, organza and grosgrain)
Flatback pearls or other decorations
Fabric Stiffen


Here are my 36″ strips cut I made extra just in case


Take your needle and sew a running stitch like shown above all the way to the end of the ribbon.


I pulled the ribbon to start the flower as I kept sewing along the running stitch

Note: (if the ribbon turns the wrong way as you’re pulling it simply turn it the right way and keep forming the circle.)


I took my needle through the ribbon several times along the inner circle to make sure it was extra tight and secure.

Now you want to follow the first 3 steps until all the flowers are formed.


I used several different colors


Take a 36″ strip of ribbon tie in a knot at the top for hanging


Now you want to begin placing the flowers. I started at the knot. I used hot glue to hold them together (you can sew them instead). Continue until you form a circle. Once you have all of the flowers placed like you want them. I completed mine with some flatback pearls and then I used some fabric stiffen that I purchased at Michael’s. You can purchase it from any hobby store. And….
