Make this insanely simple wreath and look like a star this 4th of July. Hang it on your front door to welcome your friends and family to your get together or take it with you as a gift to YOUR host.

You will need:

11 yards 1″ wide red-white-and-blue ribbon

20″ grapevine wreath

Three 4″ x 6″ American flags

Floral wire

we’d love to see it! Just send your photos and comments to the editor and it may get published on our Facebook fan page !

Instructions:

Weave 2 1/2 yards of ribbon through the grapevine wreath. Glue the ends of the ribbons together; this is the bottom of the wreath. // Arrange three flags at the bottom of the wreath in a fan shape so they slightly overlap; glue the flags in place. Use a small amount of glue to secure the edges of the flags where they overlap. Cut two 36″ lengths of ribbon and fashion a small multi-loop bow from each piece; tie with floral wire. Glue a bow to each side of the wreath. Use the remaining ribbon to make one large multi-loop bow. Glue bow to the bottom of the wreath to cover glued sections of ribbon and flags.
