How to Make a Patriotic Bandana Wreath:
To begin, cut all of the bandanas in half. If your bandanas came folded then there should be a fold right through the center, you can use that as a guide.
Once all the bandanas are cut in half, begin tying them around the wreath. I did all of the blues in one section and then alternated the red and the white, but you can put them in whatever order you want.
To tie the pieces on, fold the strip in half lengthwise and lay under the wreath form with the fold on the outside of the form and the tails in the middle of the wreath. Pull the tails over the top of the wreath and tuck them into the fold of the strip. Pull tight.
Continue around the wreath adding more strips of the bandana. Pushing the pieces close together as you go.
And that's it! Your 4th of July bandana wreath is finished!
That is unless you want to add a little extra to the wreath with some white glitter paper stars!
Cutting Glitter Paper Stars with the Cricut Explore:
The cut file for these glitter stars is all ready to go on Cricut Design Space!
Follow the prompts within Cricut Design Space and cut out your stars.
If you have this nifty spatula tool, it makes removing the stars from the mat so easy!
Lay the stars out about where you want them on the wreath and then glue them in place by adding a bit of hot glue to the back of each glitter star.
Be aware that since the stars are made of paper, they won't be as sturdy as wood would be in rainy weather. But they are much lighter, so the pieces of bandana aren't weighed down and won't flop over as much.
If you have a covered porch or overhang over your door they should last just fine. You just don't want them directly under a water spout. 🙂
I really love how the stars add to the finished look of the wreath.
And it looks amazing hanging on the front door!
