Really Reasonable Ribbon September Blog Hop!

Hello there, friends! It's time for the RRR September Blog Hop and if you're already hopping, then you should be arriving to me from KATHY'S amazing blog! If not, head over to the RRR Blog to start the hop!
This month, we are showcasing projects using the fantastic September Ribbon Club Assortment! This is a spooktacular mix of bright colors and festive patterns and it's just perfect for all your upcoming Halloween (and more) creations! Guess what? You could win it! Just comment on each of the blogs along the hop including the RRR blog for your chance to win this super fun ribbon assortment! 
With Halloween right around the corner, I decided to make a super cute pinwheel wreath for my front door! I made one over the summer also and it was a hit, so I took the advice of a good friend and made another with a Halloween theme for our September blog hop! 
I used a small wire wreath frame for this project so I needed approximately 24 4"x4" square pieces of patterned paper (double-sided is best) with a Halloween theme. To form mini pinwheel, fold square in half to make a triangle, unfold, then repeat on opposite side. Cut along folds to 1/2" from center. Fold every other corner to center and adhere with dot of glue. Punch 1/2" circles from scrap paper and adhere to center of pinwheels, then add a sequin to the center of each circle. 
I used all of the ribbons from the September Ribbon Club Assortment on my wreath. I cut 2 strips each of all the wider ribbons, then 4 strips each of all the narrow ribbons. Tie all into bows, then layer narrow ribbons on top of wider ribbons and add festive sticker to center of each double bow. 
Arrange and adhere all bows to wreath. 
So much cuteness and so much fun! 😍
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you like my project and feel inspired to create something pretty with ribbons today! Your next stop on the blog hop is SHEILA! Have a great day--happy hopping and happy crafting!

This is so much fun, Linsey. Great way to way of using the ribbons. This month's collection sure was fun to work with. My favorite part is incorporating them all in my hairbow. What was your favorite part of the blog hop? I hope you'll stop by my blog to say hello and take a peek at my ribbon. I'm not sure if you've ever visited my blog, but I'd love to have you stop by.
