DIY: peg and ribbon Christmas wreath

Hey champs. I've seen a few similar peg/clothespin wreaths hanging around the magical world of Pinterest, but was so chuffed with how mine turned out I thought I'd share a cheeky tutorial! This wreath is hanging proudly on our door, waaay before we've even given thought to a tree. 
Here's how to make one (spoiler: it's embarrassingly easy).

You'll need: PVA glue (or similar), scissors, ribbon, baker's twine, cardboard (I used a glamorous cereal box), 21 wooden pegs.

Cut out two circles from the cardboard (I drew around a DVD for roundness!). Cut out the centre of each circle leaving a ring of a couple of inches. 

Cut a strip of ribbon for each peg. Glue them on.

Place the two rings together. Once the pegs are dry, peg them on!

Add a bit of baker's twine for hanging, some sort of conveniently matching decoration and you're done! I love what a simple make this is and how you could change it up by using paint or washi tape instead of ribbon. Love love.
