Can you believe that we’re heading into summer? We lighten our homeschool workload and spend a little more time relaxing during the hot summer days, enjoying barbecues and family time. Late Spring and summer bring with them the traditional red, white and blue colors in the way of Memorial Day and Independence Day. I don’t know about you but I like decor that can stay on display for a while like this red, white and blue wreath! The burlap and buttons remind me of old fashioned picnics with red checkered tablecloths and small town parades. The best part? This wreath is super simple to make at home.
Red, White and Blue Wreath Supplies
12″ Foam Wreath (or larger)
Red, White and Blue Mesh Ribbon (cut lengthwise to about 5″)
Red and blue star shaped buttons
Burlap Flower Embellishment
Hot Glue Gun and Hot Glue
How to make a Red, White and Blue Wreath
- Glue the end of the burlap ribbon to the backside of your wreath and begin wrapping the ribbon around the wreath. Overlap the wrapped ribbon by about 1″ and secure with glue once you’ve covered the entire wreath.
- Fold the red, white and blue mesh ribbon in half and add a dot of glue at the beginning edge to hold the fold. Glue the folded end to the back of the wreath and use your hand to hold the fold in the ribbon as you wrap it around the wreath. The mesh ribbon should have a gap between edges to expose the burlap. Glue the end of the mesh ribbon to the wreath.
- Gather the burlap flower and pinwheels and arrange them on the bottom right inside the wreath. Once you have a placement decided, use glue to secure them to the wreath. I slid the pinwheel sticks under a layer of wrapped ribbon for extra hold.
How does it look? Your wreath will look beautiful hanging on the front door or just sitting on your mantel.
