How To Make A Red White and Blue Bandana Wreath
You only need a few simple supplies to make this wreath. Scroll all the way down for the printable Supply list and easy instructions.
Because I am personally a visual learner, I’m including some pertinent photos from the process. Please see the video for easy instructions. Seriously, you can make a bunch of these and give them as gifts. They are that easy and inexpensive.
Key Factors in making this bandana wreath
First, prep all of the bandanas including folding and stacking them. This will allow you to quickly assemble the wreath.
Create the loop by placing the folded bandana piece under the wreath form with the open end on the inside. Now open the loop on the other end by using your fingers as shown.
Next you will pull the inside end of the bandana through the loop and pull it tight. It’s almost like making a slip knot.
The knot will be on top. You simply pull the bandanas close together as you work your way around the wreath. If you want a more jam packed wreath, add one more of each color. We like how this one looks neat and not overcrowded.
The cost came in just under $20 which is fabulous for a new front door wreath! You can find the bandanas at most craft stores. Be sure to get the one’s which are printed on both sides. They do cost more but are steal cheap. All are available on Amazon and affiliate links are included in the tutorial below.
NOTE: If you live in a hot and humid climate, you may want to spray the finished wreath front and back with spray starch to avoid drooping.
My daughter crafted this beautiful Patriotic wreath and therefore it is currently gracing her front door. I had to have a little fun with it before it left the house though. So I hung it in the breakfast nook and snapped this picture. Now I think I’m going to have to make one for myself.
If you are using a larger wreath frame be sure to increase the number of bandanas you use. If you live in a hot and humid climate, you many want to spray the wreath front and back with spray starch. See video for step by step tutorial.
