How To Make this Red, White, and Blue Wreath

In case you missed a step or two, here are the instructions for the wreath. You can also print out the instructions with the tutorial card at the end of this post.

Step 1

Take your sign and glue the zip tie mounts to each corner on the back on the back. You only need a little bit.

Wait for the glue to dry completely before moving onto the next step.

Step 2

Fluff out and prepare your wreath form.

Step 3

Make 8″ poufs with your mesh between each wreath tie on the top of your wreath form. Then, make 10″ poufs around the bottom.

Step 4

Using the bottom twist ties, use the deco mesh and fill in the middle to give a fuller look, skipping every other bottom twist tie.

Step 5

Prepare your wreath sign by adding pipe cleaners to each of the mounts.

Step 6

Attach the sign to the right side of your wreath, using the pipe cleaners to tie around the metal frame.

Step 7

Get out your ribbon tail board, 2.5″ ribbon, and 1.5″ ribbon.

Cut 2.5″ ribbon into (36) 14″ strips. Then grab and cut 1.5″ ribbon into (36) 14″ strips.

Make sure to cut the ends of each ribbon into dovetails.

Step 8

Layer (2) 1.5″ ribbon strips on top of (1) 2.5″ ribbon strip, fold in half, scrunch in middle, and add to the wreath ties.

Step 9

Fan out the ribbon tails and make sure it all points out to make the wreath look bigger.

Step 10

Repeat the previous 2 steps until you add ribbon tails to each wreath tie on the bottom and then the top ties.

Step 11

Get a 2.5″ ribbon and cut (4) 26-inches long. Then, get another 2.5″ ribbon and cut (4) 25-inches long. After you’ve done those two, get 1.5″ ribbon and cut (4) 24-inches long.

Make sure to cut the ends of the ribbons into dovetails.

Step 12

Take the 25-inch long ribbon, fold in half, fold in half again, give it a little pinch, and add to wreath tie.

Step 13

Fold the 26-inch long ribbon in half, then fold in half again. Give it a little pinch and add it to the same wreath tie facing opposite of the previous ribbon.

Step 14

Fold the 24-inch long ribbon in half and then fold it in half again. Pinch it and add it to the same wreath tie facing opposite of the previous ribbon.

Step 15

Repeat last 3 steps to make your fake bow 3 more times.

Step 16

Get one of the 2.5″ ribbons, cut (2) 25-inches long, trim ends into dovetails, and make single loop bows and add to wreath.

Step 17

Get your 1.5″ ribbons, cut one 14-inch long, trim ends into dovetails, and add ribbon tail to the wreath.

Step 18

Curl in all wreath ties and you’re done!

Now you have a beautiful patriotic welcome wreath to decorate your door or home!
