How To Make It:

  1. Cut an assortment of ribbons to desired lengths.
  2. Hot glue one end of the ribbon to the styrofoam wreath and begin wrapping it around, gluing every so often to keep it in place.
  3. Hot glue the end to secure it.
  4. Start the next ribbon where the other left off, hot gluing in the same way. Continue until the entire wreath is covered with ribbon, with no styrofoam showing.
  5. Wrap black yarn around the places where the two different ribbons meet, gluing to secure it at both ends.
  6. Cut some string and make a bow.
  7. Hot glue the bow onto the wreath, in the middle of the circle.
  8. Paint the face on your styrofoam semi circle, using the template.
  9. Hot glue this onto the wreath, just above the bow.

Note: Hot gluing and cutting should be done by an adult.

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 15 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
