Easiest 4th of July Wreath Ever

Dp you remember this? I loved this simple wreath which was on the guesthouse while our bride was there last week.

Wedding Bells Wreath on Pole

But she is on her honeymoon now! The wreath has to go. I decided to do a quick change and have a 4th of July wreath.

I’m working today, and I decided to do this at about 7 am. It only took about 15 minutes to get everything done, write this post and get in the shower. It’s “Independence Day for Wrinkles at About Face,” and we’re having a huge Botox/Dysport sale. It will be a fun day because we will be very busy and everyone will be excited about the great price! I work just enough for work to be fun.

I recalled having some red bandanas and scrap fabric that I’d used years ago when I lived in the suburbs and had to walk my dogs. (Tractors…they pulled me. It was awful.) When we moved back to Virginia, they no longer needed a leash since there was plenty of land for them to run and roam on. The bandanas were forgotten. Until now.

I treated them as if they were long pieces of burlap…

Bandana

I rolled, twisted and hot glued them into rosettes. Anyone can do this. I’ve seen instructions on You Tube, but it’s intuitive…it’s a just “do it” thing.

Rosette

Then..I added the rosettes to the wreath with just a drop of hot glue. The glue doesn’t damage the wreath, and I’ll use it for something else later.

I could insert a little flag into the right side. Or not. I am trying not to bring things into this house that end up in a drawer. Too much stuff!!

Simple, but festive enough to say “Happy 4th of July. I’m glad to be an American!”

Happy 4th

I hope you have a great 4th of July. We’re having a small picnic with family. Yum.
