Halloween Ribbon Wreath

I was looking for a cute Halloween tutorial to do this week and came across this really cool one. You can do it for any season or have one hanging year round. It is from The Long Thread blog about a year ago. Such a cute idea. Since it takes a lot of ribbon, try buying in bulk online rather than at the craft stores to make it alittle bit more inexpensive. Have fun and any finished projects, we would love to see pics!


12″ foam wreath form

24 yards 1 1/4″ black grosgrain ribbon (or less if using a wider ribbon)


Measuring tape


1. Cut 45-50 16″ pieces of ribbon.

2. Tie one strand of ribbon in a knot around the wreath. I used a “messy knot” — right over left, then right over left again, pulling in the opposite direction. It doesn’t really matter how you do it as long as you are consistent all the way around. Repeat with the knots, pushing them close together, until you fill the wreath.

3. Cut one long piece of ribbon (48″) and tie one end to form a knot. Leave a long loop for hanging and tie another knot onto the wreath.

4. Trim any frayed or long ends.

Recipe Friday: Sweet Dinner Rolls

My sister introduced me to this awesome homemade roll recipe. It is so easy to make and so good!!

Sweet Dinner Rolls

1/2 cup warm water
1/2 cup warm milk (I don't warm up the milk. I just use it cold)
1 egg
1/3 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup white sugar
1 tsp salt
3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 (.25 ounce) package of active dry yeast
1/4 cup butter, softened


1. Place water, milk, egg, 1/3 cup butter, sugar, salt, flour, and yeast in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select Dough/Knead and First Rise Cycle; press Start.

2. When cycle finishes, turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. (I do not put any flour down. I think it makes the dough taste floury). Divide dough in half. Roll each half into a 12 inch circle, spread 1/4 cup softened butter over entire round. Cut each circle into 8 wedges. (like cutting a pizza) Roll wedges starting at wide end; roll gently buy tightly. Place point side down on ungreased cookie sheet. Cover with clean kitchen towel and put in a warm place, let rise 1 hour. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

3. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until golden.

And enjoy :) You can check out the actually recipe here: Sweet Dinner Roll Recipe
