Looking for a patriotic wreath to display this Fourth of July or Memorial Day? Look no further than this red, white, and blue wreath!
If you want to add a little spirit to your patriotic celebrations this year, why not start at the front door? Y’all know I’m a sucker for decorating for pretty much any holiday, and the Fourth of July is no exception.
Red, White, and Blue Wreath
There really isn’t another color options for this red, white, and blue wreath. I mean, you could try one, but it wouldn’t have that U.S.A. flare.
This wreath has pretty 10″ mesh poufs around the bottom of the wreath, topped with some 8″ poufs on the top. Then we’ll attach a cute sign to the top using a combination of superglue and pipe cleaners. Next, we’ll layer on some gorgeous handmade bows. Trust me, it’ll make sense in the video below.
How to Make a Red, White, and Blue Wreath
