Patriotic Wreath

I finally made a holiday wreath!
Ok.. so that statement is NOT exactly true, I made my Christmas one last year with my mom; but I haven't made any, I don't know... smaller holiday wreaths I guess I would say. I have a spring, summer, fall, and Christmas... but no holidays in the middle there. It's silly because I AM a military spouse... I kind of should have a military themed wreath shouldn't I (especially with deployments and whatnot) ? Well... I fixed that.

I got my Disney Family Fun magazine in the mail the other day and on page 45 at the bottom I saw a patriotic wreath using a cheap wreath and garland. And THEN I saw a very similar one on Love Sweet Love so I decided that I HAD to make one.

Supplies
3 - 9ft strands of patriotic garland
1 - cheap wreath
hot glue gun
3 - 4x6 flags
Ribbon

I wrapped the garland around the wreath and glued the ends until I was out of space on the wreath. Then I added 3 flags for an extra touch. Then I used ribbon to attach it to my wreath hanger.

Voila. This army wife finally has a patriotic wreath.

  5. Hey! What a great idea! I would use this wreath for veterans day, flag day, president's day and 4th of July!! So this is really an "in-between" dates wreath!
