This easy red, white and blue patriotic wreath came about because I needed a quick idea for a 4th of July front door decoration.
If you decide to make this wreath, don’t worry if you can’t find EXACTLY the same materials as what I used. You can make a totally unique wreath using any type of red, white and blue flowers along with any ribbon that fits the color scheme. I think it would even look great wrapped with burlap instead of ribbon. For a finishing touch add mini American flags (I still need to do that to mine).
What you’ll need:
- Grapevine Wreath
- Ribbon (long enough to wrap around the wreath)
- Red, White and Blue Flowers (mine are Gerber daisies)
- Floral Wire or hot glue gun
- Scissors or wire cutters
How to make:
Secure one end of the ribbon to the back side of your wreath. Wrap the ribbon around and around the entire wreath and secure (on the back side).
Cut the flower stems so they are only a couple inches long. Attach them to the wreath with hot glue OR you can wrap floral wire around the stem and then use the wire to attach the flower to the grapevines on the wreath. I placed my flowers in groups of 3 in Red, White and Blue order. My first group of flowers is at the top, slightly off center. I put a second group of flowers at the bottom, set diagonally from the top group.
*Tip: Find the perfect layout for your flowers by arranging them on top of the wreath before you start securing them with the wire so you can move them around and see where you like them the best.
If you want, embellish your wreath with mini American flags. I have not added the flags to mine yet, but hope to get around to it this weekend.
