I finally completed my Independence Day wreath project … Hooray! I have been running a little behind on all of my Fourth of July crafts.I didn’t take step by step tutorial pictures because this is my first wreath project and I was fumbling with it throughout the entire process. Also when I began I didn’t have a clear plan in mind so I was a bit scattered.For my first wreath I think it turned out acceptable. I definitely learned what not to do the next time I make a wreath. Maybe I should have visited a couple diy wreath tutorials myself, it would’ve saved me some time.
I chose to do a yarn base with cheap craft yarn. I wrapped the yarn around the wreath while gluing it down with craft glue. This process took much longer than I anticipated … maybe I’m just a slow yarn wrapper.
The sign was an unfinished piece of wood that I painted white. The red border with star cutouts is actually scrapbook paper that I trimmed to fit then Mod Podged onto the wood. Next I used alphabet rubber stamps and blue paint for the words Red White Blue. Then one last coat of Mod Podge.Lastly, I attached red ric rac trim with sewing pins as well as the scrap of cloth to hang the wreath.So there you have it! My slightly over-complicated, somewhat tedious but extremely Cheerful and Patriotic Wreath.
If you have any questions or need clarification on one of the steps I am happy to help. Please leave a comment or email me at [email protected].
