Don’t’ you just love 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? I went to my fav thrift spot and bought up some red, white and blue denim jeans to make this fun wreath project. All you do is cut the jeans into strips and wrap around a foam wreath form. Add some flowers and a cute banner and your door is going to glean this holiday season! Let’s get started! 

Red White & Blue American Denim Flag Wreath

Supplies:

red jeans, blue jeans, white jeans, crafts with denim

Instructions:

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.

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!

    Kim this is so creative and adorable! What a great idea to use denim for the wreath. It’s perfect for the 4th of July! #MerryMonday

    This is such a clever upcycle! I actually have a white and a red pair of jeans that don’t fit me anymore. I could totally use them on this instead letting them continue to take up space in my dresser. Lol. Thanks for the awesome idea!
