    I think the wreaths may not be too hard to make at home, you could use a wire coat hanger as the form.

    Unless of course, Joan Crawford is your Mother :D

    Glad I could be of some help BB :) you are so welcome!

    GoJump had hers made into one of these -

    http://www.ribbonquilts.com/

    The lady seems very talented and has lots of different designs. I believe Edee (GoJump) was very happy with the product she got back.


    I have Champion ribbons lining the top of my walls of my room. I used to have my entire wall(s) covered. The rest are now getting dusty in a closet. Generally I just give my ribbons to another kiddo at the barn who wants to add to their collection whether or not they won them, haha!

    My brother told me I should make a skirt out of mine. Not sure how one would go about doing that, but how awesome would that be?!? :)
