Easy Bandana Wreath {Patriotic Inspiration Tour}


Easy Bandana Wreath - It only takes about 30 minutes!  girlinthegarage.net

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.   😉

Supplies:

  • Wreath form
  • Red, white, and blue bandanas (I used one of each)
  • Scissors

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.

p.s. I dare you to try typing “bandana” over and over – see how many times you type “banana” instead.  😉

    What a cute patriotic wreath! I’m always looking for crafts to do with a few young friends and I’ll bet that both of my crafty young pals would like to make one of these.

    I was on a mission today to make this! Found a straw wreath at Michael’s and had to search all over Walmart (of all places) for bandanas. I found true red & blue at Academy Sporting Goods. My straw wreath is too large so it’s back to Michael’s tomorrow! I am determined!

      I’m so happy you’re going to make this wreath! I hope you have better luck finding the supplies. I know you can buy the foam wreaths at Joann’s or Hobby Lobby – and I bought the bandanas at Hobby Lobby for $.99 each. (They have lots of color choices!) Please let me know how it turns out! :)
