Here is my July 4th challenge project. First let me say I LOVE to make these easy wreaths for all occasions for my front door. All supplies are found at my local dollar store. Takes about a hour to complete and put all together.

General tip for dollar store shopping... get your supplies for that holiday/season early. As soon as I see the items needed out, I buy them... as they go fast and don't seem to restock much.

Supplies needed for project: 3 rolls of colored mesh, flowers, wire wreath, floral wire or pipe, and center plaque.

Here are all my dollar Store supplies. I found this 3 piece plaque hanging piece that all I wanted was one of the squares. Flowers of red, white, blue... also same colors of mesh. Wire wreath, normally is green but I had painted it white for a previous project but color doesn't really matter as you will not see it. Also in picture is my pipe wire that I use to attach mesh to Wreath.

First I cut all my mesh. I used one full roll of each color for this Wreath. I don't really measure length as I have made so many of these wreaths. But it is approx 6" in length for each strip.

Next I take one strip and fold over, then bunch together and attached pipe wire. Now the pipe wire I have cut into thirds. You don't need a huge long strip of pipe wire to connect mesh to Wreath.

Here is the blue mesh attached to Wreath.

Here is a photo of red and white mesh ready to attached to Wreath.

So I did blue mesh like how a flag looks. Then alternated red and white like stripes on the wreath.

This photo shows the back of the wreath and how I attach the wire pipe mesh.

After all mesh attached I decided to add artificial flowers to the wreath for filler and give alittle more color and definition.

Wreath with all the mesh and flowers attached.

Last step was adding the center plaque. I used my hot glue gun to attach it to the center of the wreath. Attaching it to the mesh and pushing down Until hardened.

Here is the finished project... ready to be hung on front door.

These are easy to make and worth a try. Being all supplies can be bought from the dollar store, easy craft and if you mess up, easy to buy more and try again. The results look more expensive than what I paid.

    I know this was a long time ago. It’s hard to see where you placed the red and white mesh. Which wire did you place the red and white mesh. Are there two reds one on outer, middle or inner wire on the wreath, then alternate beside the red place the white mesh in the same way? Or is it just one white and one red alternating, using just one of the wires on the wreath? If so, either way which wires do you use?
