DIY 10 Minute Patriotic Wreath Tutorial

Sunday, June 30, 2013

I FINALLY got around to crafting for the 4th of July this past weekend! Better late than never, right? Darren and I had five different obligations that we were trying to juggle on Saturday and Sunday so I needed to make something that wouldn't take a lot of time. I decided to go with a fabric wrapped wreath because A.) it's easy and foolproof which is the kind of crafting I like to do and B.) it's super fast and wouldn't make a big mess for me to clean up.

All you need for this project is a wreath form (any kind will do), fabric, a glue gun, and whatever embellishments you like to fancy it up at the end. I only used about a 1/2 yard of each kind of fabric.

First you need to rip the strips of fabric for your wreath (learn how HERE). I made mine about 3 1/2 inches wide. Next wrap the fabric strips around the wreath using your glue gun to secure the ends. Make sure your ends are glued to the back of your wreath so they can't be seen. One of the best things about this project is that this entire portion only took around 5 minutes to complete!

This is what my wreath looked like after it was totally "wrapped". It was cute, but I felt it needed a little more umph. I used my Cricut to cute some mini pennant flags and attached some red, white, and blue scrapbook stickers to them. If you don't have a Cricut just use a scrapbook punch or freehand it! Next I strung the banner with some patriotic Baker's Twine and tied to to the wreath. I think that was just the extra touch it needed! Again... this second part of the wreath only took an additional 5 minutes! LOVE. THAT!

  2. Hi Hannah! Cute project. I have been looking for a wreath for my side door and your wreath has given me inspiration! I found you blog on Fun in The Sun party and am your newest follower. Hope you get the opportunity to visit me at Still Woods Farmhouse. Maybe you can give me a few ideas of what to do with two window frames I recently picked up!
