wreath form- Dollar Tree
2 red handkerchiefs
2 white handkerchiefs
1 blue handkerchiefs
strip of burlap for bow/hanger
Begin but cutting all your handkerchiefs into strips, I cut mine in half, in half again and then each rectangle into thirds. If you use a larger wreath base you may need to cut your strips longer and perhaps buy 1 extra of each color.
Wrap strips around and tie off, alternating red and white.
On the upper left side place all your blue strips.
Now you will want to straighten and spread out each one to cover wreath well.
Tie a wide strip of burlap into a bow and wrap around the top of your wreath. You can add another one for the hanger or use a thinner piece of ribbon or twine to hang from.
This simple wreath makes a great decoration for your front door or inside, maybe over the fireplace?
I have never been one who thought I could make a beautiful wreath for my door, but this was so easy and cheap I know I’ll have to experiment more in the future.
