The 4th of July is only a few days away, but there's still plenty of time to make this patriotic American flag wreath! I picked up all of these materials at Dollar Tree, but if you can't find them there, any craft store will have these.
American Flag Wreath
I used 3 bandana's; one in each color: red, white and blue. You can use even more if you want a bigger or fuller wreath.
Take each bandana and fold it in half. You will then need to rip or cut strips about 1" long. They don't have to be perfect! The frayed edges give more of a rustic character, especially in this project.
Take your wire wreath form and tie down each strip with a lark's head knot. If you're not familiar with these, they are very simple! Fold the fabric strip down the middle. Slip the folded end behind the place where the knot will be tied and pull. That's it!
Alternate red and white strips around 75% of the wreath form. For the last 25%, you will just add in all of the blue fabric. Once all the strips are attached and it's the fullness you want, you can trim down all the ends. These will help keep them from flopping down if they are too long.
This is optional, but I think it really adds to the wreath! Take some wooden stars and hot glue them down on the blue fabric. I left mine the natural color, but you can definitely paint these white or cover in silver glitter.
Hang your wreath up in your favorite spot and you're all set to celebrate this holiday weekend!
