I have a favorite summer wreath with rope and flags, here is the post, but it keeps falling off my door. It is a little bit heavy. So I have moved on to my next summer wreath. For some reason I really don't like my front door to be bare. This one was very easy and budget friendly too. And it was finished just in time for the 4th of July.
I started out with a straw wreath form from Hobby Lobby but Walmart also has them.
Two bandanas from Hobby Lobby, in whatever color you want. And some red ribbon. I also used some scrap fabric and felt that I already had on hand.
I started out by cutting my bandanas into two inch strips. It didn't work out to an even number if I folded then exactly in half so my first cut is just a single strip not doubled over. I hope that makes sense.
I used straight pins to attach the strips to the form then wrapped it around and attached it with another straight pin at the end. It only took 2 bandanas.
I also wanted to add some flowers, I have seen these cute loopy flowers and this was the perfect chance to make some. I cut a 19" strip of felt that was 3.5" wide. I just guessed at what size would work so yours could be longer for a bigger flower or wider for a taller flower. I folded the felt in half and cut slits a little past half way down the whole length. Then I rolled it up adding hot glue along the way to hold it in place. I cut a small piece of felt to glue to the bottom to help hold it together.
This turned out to be a fun little wreath and it is a lot lighter so hopefully it stays up all summer long.
Have a wonderful week and 4th of July! I will be spending time with family and friends and no to-do lists!
