The idea originated from this Dollar Store Craft. But I altered the design a little to make it more rustic and chic.

Now the first big difference with my wreath is the actual wreath itself! Most Patriotic Wreath crafts use a foam wreath. Which is still great. But for this Red, White, and Blue Patriotic Bandana Wreath I prefer the flatter look of a wire floral wreath. It gives more dimension to the stars and bandana ends.

To begin, take each bandana and unfold it.

Cut the bandana in half following the crease. (no need to measure)

Fold them in half and fold the jagged ends under.

Place the bandana under the wire wreath with the centerfold on the outside of the wreath.

Take the 2 ends and bring them over the wreath and through the center loop end. Pull tight. You may need to tug a little but be sure to keep the ends even.

Continue this technique all the way around the wreath alternating Red and White. When you run out of the red and white bandanas then add the blue bandanas in a block to finish off the bandana.

Spray paint the Mini Metal Stars first with the Gloss White Spray Paint. Allow to dry.

To attach the stars we are going to use a similar method that I used with my Patriotic Wreath tutorial. Take the gauge wire and cut it to the length you desire.

I did different lengths for each star as I wanted some to be longer and some shorter for a nice 3D effect. But a good starting point would be approximately 10-12 inches long.

Attach one end to the back of the star with glue. Allow the hot glue to cool before moving.

Attach the end of the wire (not attached to the star) to the wire wreath in the blue bandana section of the wreath by wrapping it around the wreath and wrapping back onto itself a few wraps to keep it secure.

Do this to all the stars you want to include.

Now you can hang your wreath and enjoy! Yet another reason why I love the wire wreath is that you don’t need to attach a hook to hand the wreath!

This Patriotic Bandana Wreath is much easier to put together in my opinion and still looks rustic and chic at the same time!
