With SOOOOO many adorable patriotic wreath ideas on Pinterest it was hard to choose which direction to go with my wreath. However, I've been having a lot of fun with "rag tie" projects lately, such as my Rag-Tie Bunting Banner and other custom orders I've had in my Etsy Shop lately, I decided it would be fun to try a rag tie wreath- in similar fashion as a tutu wreath.
My mom was over visiting from her Lavender Farm in Sequim, WA- so we got to make these together- and she had one to take home too.
We started off by cutting strips of fabric (2 inches wide and about 9 inches long.)
We cut Red, Blue and Burlap. Then we cut the middle of the shrink plastic out of our straw wreaths my mom had for likely 20+ years and never did anything with.
Then we simply just started tying knots!
Mine had about 5 red strips in each red section, 2 burlap strips and a big section of blue.
And this is what it looked like after it was fully tied. It needed something more- so I added some left over stars from my Starry Banner Handcraft. And it turned out GREAT!
This concludes my 3 part blog series of 3 Quick Patriotic Handcrafts. If you missed part 1 or 2 you can find them here:
I hope you'll take a few minutes and add some Patriotic Flare to your home for the coming holidays.
