I cut the ribbons into 6" lengths, cutting on an angle so the edges didn't fray. Anything in the color scheme was fair game, so I used solids, stripes, polka dots, and any other style of ribbon I had on hand. To decorate the wreath, I tied the ribbons onto the wire frame, creating an even mix of colors. My ribbon collection covered the wreath quite fully, but there's always room for more. I think I'll be adding to it throughout the summer.
The wreath gives a splash of patriotic color to a door or porch, but it can also be used to decorate a Fourth of July party table.
