Supplies needed for Patriotic Wreath:

  • 18″ grapevine wreath base
  • 3 yards 1 1/2″ striped ribbon
  • 3 yards 2 1/2″ burlap ribbon or burlap strips
  • 2 mini flags
  • hot glue
  • glue gun
  • Bow ( 2 1/2 yards 1 1/2″ grosgrain ribbon and 2 1/2 yards burlap or burlap ribbon)

Steps for Making a Patriotic Wreath:

Step 1: Start by wrapping your wreath with the burlap. Secure with hot glue on the back as needed.

Tip: If using burlap that has a raw edge, spray with hair spray to help with fraying.

Step 2: Layer your striped ribbon over the burlap, hot gluing on the back as needed.

Step 3: Make a bow.

Note: You can make a basic bow by layering your burlap and ribbon, or a fancier bow like the one I did above with four loops.

 I did 4 instead of 6 loops.

Step 4: Attach the flags by sliding the sticks through the wreath base. No glue needed.

Step 5: Glue your bow onto the wreath and you are done!
