Summer is fast approaching and I realized that although I've made quite a few wreaths in my day, I've never made a patriotic one for the 4th of July. So, after some Pinterest browsing, I decided to make a burlap wreath with some red, white and blue accents. Read on to learn how to make your own!
What you'll need:
- metal wreath frame
- burlap (I used the 7" roll in natural from Paper Mart)
- red, white, and blue flowers
- small flags
- wide fabric ribbon (I used this patriotic striped ribbon from Paper Mart)
- hot glue
Start by wrapping your wreath frame with the burlap. I used this tutorial. It's way easier than I thought it would be.
To make the bow, make three loops with the ribbon and use the wire to tie them together in the center. Take a smaller piece of ribbon and wrap it around the center. Glue two long pieces of ribbon to the back for the tails of the bow. Wired ribbon is ideal because it curls and holds its shape perfectly.
Attach the flowers to the wreath. I trimmed the stems and used wire to attach them to the wreath frame. Add a flag or two, glue the bow below the flowers and you're all set!
