How To Make A Red White and Blue Bandana Wreath

Make your own 4th of July Wreath for your Patriotic decorations. This Red White and Blue Bandana Wreath craft comes together in under one hour. #diywreath #redwhiteandblue

You only need a few simple supplies to make this wreath. Scroll all the way down for the printable Supply list and easy instructions. I found my Bandanas at Michaels. Shop online at Michael’s here.

Supply List

  • 4 Red cotton Bandanas
  • 4 White cotton Bandanas
  • 2 Navy Blue with stars Bandanas
  • (1) 12″ Wire Wreath Form from Dollar Tree

Step 1

Lay each bandana out flat and cut it down the middle to create two pieces. We are doubling the number of bandana fabric strips to make a nice full Patriotic wreath.

You can iron your bandanas first if you simply insist but it isn’t necessary.

Step 2

Now fold each bandana strip over and over until they are about an inch or so wide. Press it down with your hand to smooth it out and lay each one in a stack.

Step 3

Create the loop by placing the folded bandana piece under the wreath form with the open end on the inside of the wreath. Now open the loop on the other end by using your fingers as shown. 

Next, you will pull the two loose ends of the folded bandana through the loop and pull it tight. It’s almost like making a slip knot. 

The knot should 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, buy one more of each color. We like how this one looks neat and not overcrowded. 

Continue this process alternating red and white until you are ready to add the blue starfield. Then place those navy blue star bandana strips all next to one another and you are done.

The cost for this easy bandana wreath came to just under $20 which is fabulous for a new front door wreath! You can find bandanas at most craft stores.

Be sure to get the ones that 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.

Decorate your front door with Patriotic decor using your new Red White and Blue Bandana wreath. You can also decorate a vignette indoors using a wreath.

These wreaths make good end-of-the-year teacher gifts as well.

  1. Shirley, I saw this amazing wreath already on Facebook and I am still loving it! Your tip with the spray starch for humid areas is brilliant! Pinned.

  2. Oh I love this, Shirley and I’m Canadian! One of these in red and white would be perfect for Canada Day. Love how the pattern on the red and white bandanas give it a three dimensional look! Pinned 🙂

  3. Shirley, I’m happy to let you know that you’re being featured tonight at the Celebrate Your Story Link Party. I just love your bandana wreath! Congratulations!
    Rebecca 🙂

  4. Glory be! I think I can do this! And going to sure try. Pinned your directions right away. The wreath is adorable. Love the blunt ends on the bandanas. Have seen different versions of this wreath but the ends of the bandanas looked different as I recall. Keep your fingers crossed that I can pull this off.

  5. This is great! Love the versatility of it as it could easy be swapped out for fall colors. Dollar Tree always has seasonal scarves so am curious how these would work especially with your tip of spraying starch on the fabric.

  6. Just adorable! I love bandanas and bandana wreaths. This wreath looks beautiful and I like the look of no overcrowding too. You definitely need one too (so do I).

  7. This is one of those crafts that looks tricky but actually ends up being pretty easy (or so it looks). I’m going to have to keep an eye out for bandannas to go on sale to make something similar. Thanks for the tutorial!

    1. Yes, Susan, it is super easy. One of those pleasant surprises. Use your coupons for bandanas at the craft store. I like those because the print is on both sides.

    1. I agree it works for the front door or even a wall inside. This one went home with my daughter so now I need to make one for myself. I liked it in my breakfast nook. It looked nice with my little Patriotic vignette.

We enjoying hearing from you!
