DIY American Flag Bandana Wreath

Hello there! Hope ya’ll had a lovely Memorial Day weekend. I know I did. I had time to make this cute wreath (while my husband slaved away in the backyard doing massive amounts of manual labor AKA building a fence).

Since it’s summer and summer screams “MERICA!” (does it? I think so), I think this is perfect for the front door.

Supplies you’ll need:

  • 18″ wire wreath
  • 18 bandanas: 6 red, 6 white, 6 blue
  • some fabric scissors
  • star buttons
  • hot glue

My star buttons are lost in the mail right now, but I will be gluing some adorable wooden star buttons on the blue section of the wreath once they come in. 😉

Here’s how ya do it:

  1. Cut each bandana in half, along the fold, so you’ll have 12 of each color.
  2. Throwback to the 90’s and make a topsy tail out of all the pieces. AKA, make a U shape underneath the wreath, with the solid part on the outside. Wrap each end (2) on top of the wreath and through the loop.
  3. Alternate the red and white pieces, keeping them SUPER tight to each other.
  4. Once you’re done with the red and white bandanas, add all of the blue ones.
  5. Hot glue on some wooden star buttons to the blue parts. I got mine on Amazon, but they aren’t here yet.
  6. ENJOY! YAY, AMERICA!

Easy peasy, and oh so cute (and cheap). You could use this technique with different types of fabric and buttons/flowers/bows.
