DIY Patriotic Wreath 

Wreath making is fun for every holiday. There’s nothing like hanging up a new wreath that you created. You can use your imagination and inspiration from magazines or craft stores, and get the look you desire. I started making burlap wreaths a couple of years ago for our wedding. It was a rustic feel, so burlap was perfect. You can use ribbon or bandanas like I used for this particular one. I actually wanted to have bandanas going all the way around, but these 4 were all that was left at the store. I decided to work with it, and what I had at home! This wreath is what I came up with. Our front door is 4th of July ready!

Instructions

Here are instructions for you to make your very own rustic, patriotic wreath that is perfect for not only the 4th of July, but Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day as well.

  1. Start with a wire wreath. Use burlap ribbon for the easiest and faster way to get going. For a more rustic feel (with frayed edges) use burlap fabric by cutting it into strips. I tie the end around the middle 2 wires to secure it. Then I do a pattern of top, middle, bottom. I make a loop, pull it in between the wire, and fluff it up. Once you get around 3/4 of the wreath, cut off extra, and tie to secure the end.

2. Fold the bandanas and tie around the middle two wires. The pictures really show you how to do this better than any explanation I could write. The process is almost like making bows. See the pictures below.

3. Get an over-the-door wreath hanger if you don’t already have one, and hang that baby up! Look at you with your custom wreath. Show off your patriotic side with this dash of red, white, and blue. Wasn’t that fun to make?
