As I have mentioned previously, I love the Boy Scouts and their wreaths…but their bows…Not So Much…

(If I were a Girl Scout, I would set up shop right next to the Boy Scouts and sell bows…of course, my motives wouldn’t be purely business…) but I digress….

So, I went to my ribbon stash…

Before I shaped the bow…I flipped the wreath over…I don’t want the nasty wires on the back scratching my wood door…

So I cut up the Boy Scout bow and hot glued it to the back of the wreath…

  1. We just received our boy scout wreath. I kept looking at it thinking “something is missing.” A better bow! Your post reminded me that last year, I inserted pretty ribbon throughout the wreath and it really jazzed it up a bit. Now, to the ribbon stash.
