With Memorial Day, the Fourth of July and Labor Day all within a matter of a few months, I decided to take down my spring wreath and make something patriotic to put in its place. This Old Glory themed wreath came together in about a half an hour and was very inexpensive to make.
Old Glory Patriotic Wreath Tutorial
18″ grapevine wreath base
3 yards 1 1/2″ striped ribbon
3 yards 2 1/2″ burlap ribbon or burlap strips
2 mini flags
Bow ( 2 1/2 yards 1 1/2″ grosgrain ribbon and 2 1/2 yards burlap or burlap ribbon)
Start by wrapping your wreath with the burlap. Secure with hot glue on the back as needed. If using burlap that has a raw edge, spray with hair spray to help with fraying.
Layer your striped ribbon over the burlap, hot gluing on the back as needed.
You can make a basic bow by layering your burlap and ribbon or a fancier bow like the one I did above with four loops.
I was too lazy to create a tutorial for how I made this bow because there are already so many tutorials online. Here is one similar, I did 4 instead of 6 loops.
Attach the flags by sliding the sticks through the wreath base. No glue needed. Glue your bow onto the wreath and you are done!
I love how simple it was to make and how bright and patriotic our front door looks now!
For reference, the wreath base, striped ribbon and flags were purchased at Michael’s. The burlap and blue ribbon were leftover from other other projects.
