Bandana Wreath 2Looking for a super simple, last minute 4th of July craft?! This bandanna wreath is so cute and requires just a few supplies! It’s also the perfect craft to make with kids or grandkids.

SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Wreath form
  • Bandannas:
  • Red – White – Royal Blue/Navy
  • Straight pins
  • Black zip ties or rubber bands
  • Mod Podge (optional)
  • White stars
  • Craft glue

Instructions:

  1. Cut all the bandannas in half.
  2. Fold the bandanna inward to hide cut edges.
  3. Lay the wreath on top of it, gather the ends and hold it close to the wreath.  Fold over any edges that show the wrong side of the bandanna.
  4. Attach a zip tie as close to the wreath as possible. Cut off the excess.  Continue doing alternating red and white bandannas until you have placed all thirteen stripes or as many to your liking.
  5. Then move to blue bandannas Cover the rest of the wreath using the same technique with the blue bandanas as you did with the stripes.
  6. OPTIONAL: Pour some white glue or Mod Podge in a bowl and add some hot water. Mix with the glue in the bowl.  Using the sponge brush, apply it to the outside edges of the wreath on the bandannas. This will keep the bandannas from drooping.
  7. Glue the stars over the blue bandannas, in a random pattern.
