4th of July Wreath with Bow

4th of july wreath

I love the 4th of July! It is one of the best holidays because we get to celebrate our country and the freedoms that come with being an American. I love this country and I am so thankful that I was born an American. I love American decor so much that I my family room is completely decorated in red, white & blue. Right down to the pillows on the couches.
I made my burlap wreath a while ago around Halloween time. I had a orange bow in it at that time. Then at Christmas I put a red bow in it. Now it’s got a red,white & blue bow for the 4th! I love my burlap wreath because I can use it for all different holidays or seasons. I don’t permanently attach the bows for that reason.
I used Little Lovely Leaders Burlap Wreath post to make my wreath. Head on over to check out Bridget’s directions to make your wreath.

I hope that you all have a lovely 4th of July this year. Celebrate safely and have fun!
Now for the cute patriotic bow to add to your wreath:
You will need a roll of wired patriotic ribbon: 2.5in X 18ft in size
a opposite pattern ribbon that is half the size of the wired ribbon: you need 12 inches of less of it
hot glue
safety pins
scissors
Cut a long piece of your wired ribbon and lay it on the floor. Cross the two as shown in photo.

Then fold to back of folds to make another loop on each side that are slightly bigger then the loops in the front of the bow.

Take your smaller ribbon and wrap it around the center of the loops a couple of times. Then hot glue it to hold the bow tight.

Trim the ends of the ribbon at an angle. Then attach the bow to your burlap wreath with the safety pins and hang it on your door. 4th of july bow finish
