I love celebrating patriotic holidays. We are so blessed to live in the land of the free and the home of the brave.
Psalm 33:12—Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.
Since July 4th holiday is coming up in less than a month, I recently decided to make a patriotic farmhouse style wreath. Farmhouse style is so trendy and makes a home feel welcoming and inviting, so what’s better than patriotic farmhouse décor to welcome my family as we go to-and-from home during these hot summer months?!!
When it comes to decorating with red, white, and blue for the holidays, I am pretty picky about the style with which I decorate.
Fake flowers in red, white, and blue are definitely not my favorite, so it’s always difficult to find a flower arrangement for patriotic celebrations. I prefer to stick to real flowers! Dollar stores have plenty of those faux flowers, but I tried my best to steer clear of those when selecting my materials.
All materials, with the exception of the toile fabric pieces, were purchased very reasonably at the dollar store. The project can easily be made for under $15.
Materials for Red, White, and Blue Farmhouse Wreath
3 small foam wreath forms
hot glue gun and glue
4 spools of red burlap ribbon (3 in. x 3 yd.)
3 spools of cream lace ribbon (5/8 in. x 9 ft.)
blue and white toile fabric pieces cut into strips
1 spool of red grosgrain ribbon (5/8 in. x 15 ft.)
Steps to Create the Red, White, and Blue Farmhouse Wreath
1. Wrap each foam wreath with red burlap ribbon, slightly overlapping the ribbon with each wrap. Secure the ribbon to the wreath with hot glue when beginning and ending the wrapping. Each wreath requires one spool of ribbon plus a little more from the extra spool.
2. Wrap the cream lace ribbon leaving spaces between to show larger sections of the red burlap. Secure the ribbon with glue as in Step 1.
3. Make the desired number of rosettes for embellishing the wreath. For a full tutorial explanation of how to make the rosettes, please watch the video in my post Pretty in Pink Spring Wreath ~ Dollar Store Craft Challenge Blog Hop. Arrange and glue the rosettes in preferred locations on the wreath. I glued my rosettes in various places so each wreath is unique.
4. Cut the red grosgrain ribbon to lengths of your choice so the wreaths hang at different lengths. Loop the ribbon through the wreath and tie in a double knot at the top. Since this project is made with three small wreaths, I could not use a regular wreath hanger. To display the wreaths on my front door, I used an over-the-door hanger with multiple hooks.
I am super thrilled with the way my patriotic wreaths turned out. This is one of my favorite projects ever, and you still have plenty of time to make your own Red, White, and Blue Farmhouse Décor before July the 4th. There are multiple patriotic holidays to display your wreaths throughout different months of the year, so what are you waiting for?!!

This month, I am participating in the Dollar Store Craft Challenge with a great group of creative bloggers. All of our projects use items from the dollar store, and I hope you will enjoy the summer inspiration from this blog hop.
