  • Red, white, and blue fabrics
  • Wreath form (in any size)
  • Cutting tools

Assemble the Wreath:

IMG_5797web1. Cut fabric into 1×12″ strips. We used 50 strips for our 12″ wreath form. If you’re using a smaller or larger wreath form, you may need to adjust the amount of strips.

2. Tie all the strips around the wreath form, overlapping the strips slightly to hide the wreath form.
