On 6th February 2022, Her Majesty The Queen became the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years of service.
To mark this unprecedented anniversary, the UK will be able to celebrate over a four-day bank holiday weekend from Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th June.
Thanks to Simply Ribbons we have a Jubilee wreath kit to giveaway to one lucky person on our Facebook and Instagram sites.
However, if you are not lucky enough to win, there is still time to order one here and create it in time for the bank holiday weekend. Use discount code THANX21 for an extra 15% off too.
The kit comes with everything that you need to make this stunning ribbon wreath including full instructions, frame, ribbons and flags. The wreath is very easy to make and takes around two hours. The only additional item needed is a sharp pair of scissors.
Simple yet so effective! Here’s how it’s done….
1 Wire wreath frame
A selection of 3m ribbon lengths in varying colours and materials
2 Union Flags
1 instruction sheet
Step 1 – Take each length of ribbon and using a sharp pair of scissors, cut into approximately 15cm long pieces.
Step 2 – Tie each piece of ribbon to the frame alternating colours as frequently as you wish. When using the thinner, sheer / lace style ribbons it is possible to tie each into a loose knot. The thicker satin pieces can simply be tied just once in a “cross over and under” single tie action, pulling each end to tighten.
Step 3 – Slide the tied ribbons along the wire to butt up snugly against each other, and continue tying new pieces of ribbon until each section has been suitably filled
Step 4 – Once you have completed tying the ribbon to the frame, it is at this stage that you can add the flags by securing them through the wire frame.
Tie the hanging ribbon to the top of the wire frame and knot at the top, creating a loop which will allow you to hang up your completed project!
