You know I love a good wreath. Wreathes were one of the first crafts I ever made and I still love making them. From yarn to ribbon to paint, I am always up for making a new wreath.
For July 4th, I decided to start with ribbon for my wreath.
I actually started this wreath with just the solid blue wreath you see at the bottom but then I fell in love with the stars and stripes ribbon. So, I wrapped the larger portion in that ribbon. I had found the little sparkly sticks at the craft store and attached them to the bottom of the wreath.
To cover the place where I had attached the different decorations, I attached a wood shim that I painted with chalkboard paint. I used chalkboard paint so I could change the message anytime I wanted. For now, it says “freedom” but I can definitely see us changing that message up to include other patriotic ones.
Have you started doing any crafting for July 4th? I am completely astonished by how fast the summer is already slipping by! July 4th will definitely be here before we know it!
