Perfect for a quick front door decoration change up for a holiday! Are you finished with your 4th of July decorating? This bandana wreath will definitely add to your patriotic decorations. It just as easy to make as the rag wreath and can be completed in an afternoon.
How To Make A Bandana Wreath For The 4th Of July
This wreath is so easy to make and has quickly become one of my favorite patriotic decorations. I was able to find everything I needed to create this DIY project at Hobby Lobby. That’s my go to store for all things crafting. Seriously. Love that store.
This 4th of July decor is so easy to make!
What you’ll need for making the bandana wreath:
12 inch wire wreath
spray starch (optional)
How to create the patriotic decorations wreath:
I had my kids get involved. Okay they asked to be involved. They love painting so when they saw the paint… they begged and begged. I’m not exactly sure why I allowed it but I did. Ha! Fortunately they didn’t make a huge mess with the paint. They had fun together.
You’ll need to cut strips (exactly like with the rag wreaths) out of the bandanas to then tie around the wire wreath. This video will show you how to tie the wreath.
See what I mean? Very similar to the way you tie a rag wreath.
Now that you know how to tie the wreath just tie the strips of your bandana colors all around. Like I said, the tying is the same as when making rag wreaths. You’ll just want to alternate the red and white.
Then you’ll add the blue strips to the top of the wire wreath.
Finally hot glue some wooden stars to the blue strips.
*Optional spray starch all over if you want a more firm wreath.
There you have it. A DIY home decor piece that’s very similar to the rag wreaths but with a different spin.
An easy to make bandana wreath that’s perfect for the 4th of July decor!
Happy crafting of patriotic decorations!
