2 Months ago by

FlagsThe 4th of July is easily one of my favorite holidays. Sun, swimming, BBQs, fireworks and celebrating our nation’s independence. What more could you want? I love that nostalgic feeling I get when driving down a street lined with little American flags. There’s just something that makes me so proud.

This Patriotic Ribbon Wreath is a fun and unique way to show your pride for Independence Day. Let’s get crafty!

Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

Step 1: Wrap Wreath with Ribbon

patriotic-ribbon-wreathWrap the wreath with red and white stripes. Pull the ribbon tightly as you wrap. Save a few inches of this ribbon to create the bunting in the middle later. Use hot glue to secure the ends. Next, wrap 1/3 of the wreath with the blue ribbon and secure with hot glue.

2. Add Stars

3.  Create a Bunting

Cut two small pieces of blue ribbon. Fold one either side of red and white striped ribbon and hot glue. Trim into flag shapes to complete the bunting.
