In honor of the Women’s World Cup, and of course the 4th of July, I really wanted to make a great American wreath for our front door.  Have I mentioned Hunter was gone for a week?  If you can’t tell, I started tons of projects, and this was one of them.

American Burlap Wreath

IMG_5111What you’ll need:

  • 16″ foam wreath form
  • 1 roll of burlap ribbon
  • 2 small American flags
  • 3 wooden stars
  • Blue / white paint
  • Paint brushes
  • Wreath wire
  • Hot glue gun
  • Small wreath pins

To start, get your burlap ribbon, foam wreath, and pins ready.  Pin the end of the burlap ribbon into the wreath and then start wrapping it around the wreath.  One roll of the ribbon was enough to wrap all the way around the wreath, and cover it so you can’t see any white.

The next part was the paint the stars.  I’m not a huge fan of red (probably because I hate red & black, and everything UGA), so I decided to paint the stars blue, with white letters on top.  I used acrylic paint, and did them one night while watching the USA women beat Australia.. appropriate.IMG_5117

Finally, I just had to put all the pieces together.  First, I attached the 2 American flags with wreath wire.  Next I added the wooden stars on with hot glue.  Last, I wrapped some rope around in the empty space to fill it in, and give it a little coastal feel.  Done!
