Hi friends! Today is the beginning of four days of red, white, and blue patriotic inspiration. Fifteen of my blogging friends and I are each sharing a craft, decor, recipe, etc. to help get you in the mood for the 4th of July, which is only a few weeks away!
I made a bandana wreath and it was SO simple. It’s been a little while since I did a craft project and I was reminded how much faster they are than painting a big piece of furniture! This one took me about 30 minutes, but I kept stopping to take pictures.
- Wreath form
- Red, white, and blue bandanas (I used one of each)
First I cut the bandanas into approx. 3 inch strips. I didn’t measure, I just eyeballed it.
I folded the strip into a U under the wreath and pinched the two ends together…
And pulled them down over the wreath and through the loop to make a knot.
Pull it tight and fluff the ends as needed.
Repeat until your wreath is full and festive!
I love red, white, and blue together – and the bandanas give this wreath such a classic American look.
Have you started your 4th of July crafts yet?

Be sure to visit my friends’ projects below! There will be 16 total so come back – 4 more will be added every day during the tour.
p.s. I dare you to try typing “bandana” over and over – see how many times you type “banana” instead.
