How to make a DIY Red, White, and Blue Rag Wreath

You’re going to start making this adorable patriotic wreath by cutting several strips of your red, white, and blue fabrics. If you want a frayed edge on the fabric strips, you can rip each of the strips instead of cutting them.

Then, you’re going to start tying them onto your wreath form. Alternate colors so that you don’t have two pieces of the same color fabric side by side. 

It’s going to be tedious,  but keep tying the fabric strips, alternating colors, until the entire wreath form is covered. Then, you’re going to make the centerpiece for your wreath!

I made a star out of paint sticks, but you can choose to put something different in the center of yours. If you decide to do a star as I did, here is how I made mine. 

DIY Red White and Blue Rag Wreath

Start by laying your paint sticks in the shape of a star. Once you’re happy with the shape, hot glue them together. Next, use metallic silver paint and cover the entire star, including the sides. 

Now, apply a coat of Mod Podge over the coat of metallic silver paint, and sprinkle the extra fine silver glitter onto the star. You want to have a tray or sheet of paper underneath the star to catch the glitter that doesn’t attach to the star. We don’t want to be wasteful! 

The finishing touches

Finally,  you need to attach the star to the wreath! I hot glued a piece of jute twine (in a V shape) onto the back of each point of the star. Keep the twine pieces long so you can tie them together behind the wreath.

Place the star on the wreath and flip them both upside down. One end of the twine should go above the form and the other end should go below the form. Then, tie the ends together around the wreath to hold the star in place.
