My sister-in-law, Sandy, wanted a red, white and blue wreath, so being the good sister-in-law that I am and being that it was her birthday and being that it just so happens I had some patriotic prints in my stash-I ran to Joann’s with my 50% off coupon for the wire wreath base and found star buttons that were just the thing. I couldn’t resist getting a bouquet of navy blue roses either to add some more pizzazz. Some small white roses that were just laying around set the blue ones off nicely.
-You will need-
1 yard each of red, white and blue prints or solids
stars [I used buttons-various sizes, you could cut your own from foam core board, etc.]
wire wreath form-size of your choice-I used 20″
-Let’s get started-
cut 6 strips-9″ x 22″ from white
cut 7 strips-9″ x 22″ from red
cut 7 strips-9″ x 22″ from blue
-fold each strip in half, loop onto wire wreath, alternating red and white, 7 blue strips together-
-glue stars randomly on blue strips, wire or hot glue flowers-
Your wreath is ready to hang.
May the joy of crafting be upon you
