Easy Breezy 4th of July Wreath

This is probably the simplest thing I've ever done.



Seriously, it's taking me longer to write this post than it did to make it!




I used bandanna's and a wooden hoop (I think it was a 6" hoop).




I didn't measure the strips, but I cut the bandanna in half and then cut into about 1" strips.




Fold the strip in half and put it through the back of the hoop. Slide the ends through the loop you just made.




Pull it tight and...




keep adding strips.




I alternated the red and white.


And just to keep it real around here...


that's what I have to deal with when I'm trying to take photo's. See that brown blob? That's Gage's big ol' head! He tries his best to get in every shot.





Happy Friday!

Please disregard my previous comment...I had too many things going on when I typed it. Your wreath looks wonderful. And I see where it hangs on the door and looks great! But it would look good on a table display as a centerpiece too.

Great use of fabric to create a seasonal wreath- using the symbolism of our flag in a different orientation. I like it! A lot!
