As a breast cancer survivor, I know first-hand the power of art and creative expression…
This simple pink ribbon wreath is perfect for your front door or a great addition to a breast cancer awareness event.
My girls and I love going to Michaels weekend kid craft classes. (I often capture all the dramatic crafting action in my Instagram Stories. FOLLOW ME on Instagram by clicking HERE.)

Recently while my girls were crafting away, I noticed a Michaels employee working on a beautiful Pink Ribbon craft.
I asked her what she was making and she explained that it was a Pink Ribbon wreath for a customer.
I was immediately enamored and kept watching her as she turned and twisted the pink mesh.
Looked simple enough. So I took notes, took some pics and decided to try my own hand at a perfect Pink Ribbon!
How to Make a Simple Pink Ribbon Wreath
- Pink Mesh wreath material (the long spool—the short spool won’t work)
- Pink fuzzy stick/pipe cleaner
- Pink ribbon
- Hot glue
Soooo…..this was my very first time using that mesh wreath material. And boy was I surprised at how tricky it was to manipulate!!!!
It sticks together or maybe I should say it gets caught and then pulls and starts to unravel and turns into a mess!
But again—I didn’t know this until AFTER I had opened it and unraveled it and rendered it un-returnable! So I decided to make the best of it.
I was determined to make this simple Pink Ribbon that looked so easy when the Michael’s professional was making it!
Here’s what I did:
Basically, I folded it in half and then just twisted it and turned it until it looked like a ribbon. Pretty simple.
I made a video because with something like this, sometimes it’s easier to watch.
Now if you’re a perfectionist but not a perfect crafter, then I would suggest getting an uber crafty friend to help. You can’t really mess this up, but having a crafty friend on-hand will definitely help relieve some stress if the mesh gets tangled.
One Final Step:
Get some pink satin ribbon and put it on top of the mesh, almost like an outline. Adhere it with some hot glue. Be careful when applying the hot glue to the top of the bow, if you’re not careful it will collapse the top layer into the bottom layer and you’ll lose your poof! (Yes, that’s a technical craft term.)
Here’s how mine turned out. I think it’s pretty good considering I’m just a crafter-wannabe. I like to craft but I am by no means a Martha Stewart!
