School is almost out and the 4th of July is just around the corner~ I made a series of patriotic crafts for you guys to enjoy!
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.
Start wrapping your red and white stripes around the Styrofoam wreath, make sure you make the stripes equal distance apart and hot glue.
Next wrap the blue denim shorts around using the pockets and belt loops for the blue design area.
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!
