First up is my Denim Flag Wreath! I love making wreaths and finding unique items to make into them. So I started thinking about what materials to use…when I think of red white & blue, my thoughts automatically went to denim.
What could be more American than Blue Jeans?!! So here is my cute version made from a pair of shorts and some old thrift store jeans!
Denim Flag Wreath
- 1 Styrofoam 18 inch wreath
- 1 pair of blue denim shorts
- 1 pair of red denim jeans
- 1 pair of white denim jeans
- Silk flowers
- Jute Twine
- Patriotic banner
- Small star glitter cut-outs
- Hot glue & gun
- Rotary cutter and mat
Using your rotary cutter and cut all three jeans up into 3 inch wide strips. I cut the shorts across the pockets so I could use them for added texture and design. The jeans I just cut up one leg of each.
For the flowers I pulled apart the silk flowers and added a fabric wrapped rosette flowers made from the denim to the center for a more handmade look. Hot glue them back together and add them to the wreath.
For the tutorial on how to make fabric flowers check out my Spring Wreath Tutorial. I took twine and hot glued it in a spiral pattern and added it to the center of the blue flower.
Add a cute little red white & blue paper banner and some single glittered stars to the blue denim and that’s it!! Soo cute & easy!
