These wreaths are sure to make you proud to be American!
These wreaths just shine with American pride! As you may know, my son-in-law is a Captain in the United States Air Force. He currently is a pilot instructor stationed in the states and so anything that represents America has special meaning to me. My daughter has sacrificed so much to create a home for him and my sweet granddaughter. There have been many fitfully passed nights as he’s been deployed in a war zone, flying troops into and out of harm’s way. I’m so proud of them and all of the men and women who are willing to take on this great responsibility. These wreaths are a small way of saying thank you to them.
Barbara from 21 Rosemary Lane shows you how to create a beautiful and rustic burlap wreath with stars and stripes ribbon running throughout culminating in a lovely big bow. The addition of wire floral stems with berries and stars and some greenery makes this a perfect way to celebrate America.
Ashley at Crafts Unleashed created a simple, yet gorgeous patriotic wreath that incorporates a grapevine star and beaded wire. The crackle look flag star compliments the primitive look perfectly.
This little wreath could not be easier! Oodlekadoodle Primitives made this darling wreath by taking packages of flag toothpicks and inserting them into a foam wreath form. BOOM! Easy peasy- but yet so cute.
I absolutely love this wreath from Sky at Creative Capital B. The vibrant felt squares formed into ruffles and attached to a foam wreath form make a stunning door decoration.
Cathi at Simple Sojourns created this fun wreath from four inch squares of scalloped fabric. Her easy tutorial gives all of the details. This would be a fun afternoon activity.
This is a GREAT repurposing of materials that may have wound up in the trash if Liz at Naptime Decorator hadn’t rescued them and ingeniously created this wreath with those very materials. This wreath absolutely makes me smile!
Alyssa at Crafty Mom Blog made this cute rag wreath with strips of patriotic themed fabric. The addition of firecracker and star embellishments make this just right for 4th of July!
Finally these are two ruffle wreaths that are my creations. They are very similar; same mesh with the exception of the burlap mesh I added to the God Bless America wreath, same ribbons, but a few different embellishments in each. These are such fun wreaths to make. The ruffle technique could not be easier. I have a tutorial that just includes images and step by step instructions and also a little easier to follow video tutorial.
