Yes. I am already into full blown 4th of July decorating. No. I won’t apologize … especially to the husband who just rolls his eyes and asks “whyyyyyy?” – to which I reply “Because I can!” *Grin* And honestly, when projects are this easy and quick to whip up, why wouldn’t I get all Red, White and Blue up in here? It took all of 10 minutes (if even that!) to create this fun and patriotic 4th of July Wreath!

How to make your own 4th of July Wreath:

Cut the fabric in 3 inch wide strips. I had about a yard on hand and cut 4 strips that were about the length of the yard – around 44 inches. I used 2 straight pins to secure one end of one of the strips to the wreath form. Wrap the fabric strip around the wreath form, adding the other strips until the form is completely covered. Secure with straight pins.

Next wrap the Patriotic Star Bunting and wrap it around the wreath form in the opposite direction. Secure with a straight pin.

I also secured the patriotic flowers with a few straight pins. I tucked them between the layers of petals.
