Supplies for this project
- 14″ Grapevine wreath
- Red Filler flower
- Blue filler flower
- 4″ stripe wired ribbon
- 1.5″ Stripe with stars wired ribbon
- 1.5″ Denim canvas wired ribbon
Prepare Your Base:
Start with a plain grapevine wreath base. Its natural look provides a rustic charm and a sturdy foundation for our patriotic theme.
Select Your Florals:
Choose faux flowers in red, white, and blue for a vibrant and lasting look. Consider different textures and sizes for variety and depth.
Pick out ribbons that have a patriotic flair—think stars, stripes, and dazzling colors. Wired ribbon is especially helpful for creating bows that keep their shape.
Create a Focal Point:
Form a large bow with your patriotic ribbon and secure it to the bottom or top of the wreath, depending on your preference. This will serve as the eye-catching centerpiece.
Arrange Your Florals:
Trim the stems of your faux flowers and begin tucking them into the grapevine wreath. Use floral wire for extra hold if needed.
Add Finishing Touches:
Once all elements are in place, step back and assess. Fill in any gaps with additional florals or small American flags to enhance the festive look.
Finalize Your Creation:
Use the hot glue gun to secure any loose elements. Make sure everything is firmly attached to withstand summer breezes.
