Patriotic Bandana Wreath

I’m celebrating the USA with a Patriotic Bandana Wreath to display for patriotic holidays.

This will be either over my mantel or on my door for Flag Day, the 4th of July, and more.

I’m thrilled with this red, white, and blue patriotic bandana wreath and the good news is that it was easy to make.

Supplies


Bandana Wreath Supplies

Directions


1.  Cut a nine inch square from the corner of each bandana.

2.  Press each square to remove wrinkles.

3.  Apply Heat n Bond to the wrong side of each bandana square using an iron set on medium heat.  The paper should be against the ironing board.

4.  Peel the paper away, fold up one side and iron.  (I folded to the black line next to the small paisley pattern.)

5.  Fold down the other side and press.

6.  Bring the corner on the unfolded side to meet the corner on the folded sides.  Press in place.

7.  Each bandana triangle should be nice and crisp for wreath making.  These triangles are guaranteed not to wilt in the summer heat and humidity.

8.  Use floral wire to make a hanger and attach to the wire wreath form.

9.  Wrap the wreath form in batting to make it easier to glue the bandanas down and also to make the wreath a bit bulkier.

Use a glue gun to glue the bandanas in place.

Enjoy and Display!

I love how this bandana wreath looks in our living room hanging over our mantel!

  1. Is there anything more cheerful and fun than bandana print? The patriotic theme is great, but you could do this in thematic colors for fall, Halloween, Christmas, spring and summer too. Cute Cute!

  2. Love the wreath – question: what size wreath form did you use and where did you buy the bandanas. Thanks

  3. Adorable!!! Love this…already saw it Pinned and RePinned a bunch today on Pinterest. šŸ™‚ Scheduled this for a feature tomorrow!

  4. This is great, Paula! You’re wonderful at creating special decor for different seasons. This wreath is so patriotic but it’s also just plain summery–so yes, I think you could leave it up long after July 4. šŸ™‚

    Thank you so much for joining Grace at Home!

  5. Hi Paula! Oh, you’re just the smartest one! I love this and it’s so cute and now you’re ready for the holiday.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia;)

  6. Adorable!! You did an amazing job, I just love the Americana feel of the bandana print! Hope you had a nice weekend.

  11. IT sure does say summer, love how you positioned each one behind other, great idea to keep it neat. I have couple of those wire wreaths, have done and undone them so many times when I get tired of what’s on it. This is such a great idea and look. I’ll be going to see where I can find bandanas for $1 each.
    I love to put bandanas on our dog in winter. He has a big ruff around his neck so in summer I don’t put them on him since it’s so hot already with his black fur. He goes outside and tries any way to get bandanas off, in winter he hides them in snow or under something so we can’t find them, naughty boy. He’s alot smarter than we are.
    Love all the projects you’ve made, will be pinning this one. Happy summer days

  12. Hi, Just curious, what size wire wreath form did you use for the patriotic bandana wreath?

    Thanks

  13. Love this Paula. Why do I never think of bandanas? I would love to do this next year on a smaller scale for my shutter. Pinned!

    Have a great day!

  14. Paula, I love this! Of course, the first thing I thought was, oh, this is never going to hold up in the humidity of Florida, but I see you have assured me it will! I am thinking a set of these would look great on my front windows! Oh my, looks like a trip to Joann’s is in my future! Pinning this one!

  15. Bandana print is always fun! This is really clever and uses a material I wouldn’t have thought of immediately. I need a new wreath on my front door and this has me thinking!

  16. Such a fun idea! I love bandanas and the way you used them like this is very clever!

  17. Too cute! I love red, white, and blue especially from Memorial Day through July 4th! It’s a great summer color combo. its hard to go wrong with bandana prints!

  18. This is just the cutest wreath, Paula, and I appreciate your excellent tutorial. You are SO GOOD at teaching!!

    Thank you so much for joining the party at Imparting Grace. I’m featuring you this week!
