PATRIOTIC BANDANA WREATH DIY
We’re getting ready for our son, who is a Marine, to come home on leave in a few days! I thought this was the perfect way to spruce up the front door for his arrival. 🙂
Here’s how you can spruce up your door for any patriotic holiday as well. You can probably find all these supplies at the Dollar Tree – except the extra large wreath form. You can also find most of the supplies on Amazon if you'd like to make things even easier!
Here's what you'll need . . .
- 6 red bandanas, 6 blue bandanas, 6 white bandanas (Get a Red/White/Blue Bulk Pack here!)
- Glitter Foam Stars or Glow in the Dark stars
- Hot Glue gun and glue sticks
- 18 or 20 inch wire wreath
- Hook for door
How to make a Patriotic Bandana Wreath DIY Craft
1 . Cut all your bandanas in half.
This is easy because they are already creased! Just cut along the crease, no measuring required!
2 . Start with the red and white bandanas.
It was easier for me to roll each bandana from each end to meet in the middle. Once you meet in the middle, fold in half and create a loop around the wreath. Pull the extra fabric through to complete the loop with the ends of the fabric facing outside. Continue doing this while alternating the red and white colors until you have added all of them to your wreath.
3 . Repeat these same steps with the small section you have left with all of the blue bandanas.
4 . Now, go and fluff all the bandanas to make them really stand out!
Add the self stick stars to the blue section in a random cute fashion. I secured mine with a little hot glue since I’m putting it on my front porch.
I hung mine on a door hanger I had on hand. You could probably use a command hook as well. If you need something to hang it with, a cute ribbon, pipe cleaner or floral wire will do the trick!
I used the 20” wire wreath and my wreath is huge! But, I love it! I suggest the 18” size if you want it a bit smaller.
I purchased all my supplies at Hobby Lobby, but Amazon is a great resource if you want them shipped to your front door!
