Since 4th of July is tomorrow, I thought it might be fitting if I share My Fourth of July Wreath. Gotta love me some red, white and blue!!
I headed over to Hobby Lobby since most of the fabric was on sale-Yay!! I purchased 1/2 yard big red polka dots and 1/2 yard small navy blue polka dot fabric. I had no idea what I would do with it until I got home.
I have an 12 inch straw wreath, some vintage lace, and some burlap that I was thinking about incorporating, somehow.
Hmmm…what should I do???
Since I like raw edges, I tore 4 inch strips from the width of each fabric.
I wrapped the navy blue polka dot fabric around 2/3 rds of the wreath. I cut 3 inch strips of burlap to wrap around the other 3rd of the wreath, hot gluing each end as I held the fabric tight.
Using the red polka dot strip, I used a gathering stitch along the length of my fabric. I gathered the fabric very carefully as not to break the thread. I gathered it so tight that it made a rosette. Using hot glue I attached it on the burlap. I found an antique button to hot glue in the middle of the rosette. Love it!!
Tying a loop with the vintage lace I now had a hanger for my wreath.
Doesn’t she look so patriotic on our front door?
With a few strips of fabric, a wreath and some burlap, I was able to create my Fourth of July Wreath. Such a cinch with a big impact.
Thanks for stopping by to visit today. I truly am grateful.
