Be proud to be an American, and hang a Patriotic Rag Wreath on your door this summer. So easy, even small hands can get involved making it.
Start by cutting the fabric in strips measuring 1″ by 6″. Any smaller and they won’t fluff out as nicely. too long and they’ll look droopy.
Using a simple knot, tie the strips around the wreath. Depending on the fabric you chose, you can make it a pattern to look more Flag like with the blue and stars on one side and striped red and white around, or scatter the colors around for a more mixed look like I have.
Of course, you have to have a little fun while crafting, right? It really makes the perfect picture frame with Nana.
Finally, add a longer strip of fabric or some coordinating ribbon to the back of your frame. Hang it on your door for all visitors and passersby to enjoy! You now have a Patriotic Rag Wreath that will never go out of style.
Leave it up all year, or pull it out whenever you’re feeling especially patriotic. Enjoy your 4th of July!

It turned out beautifully. I'm sure a sweet girl DID have fun with Nana.
I'm Christmas hopping! 🙂
That's gorgeous Adelina!!
It looks beautiful!! You know – wreath is American. In my country people don’t even know what wreath is 🙂
That is fascinating Winnie. Do they hang anything on doors in your country?
This wreath really came out fantastic! It seems a tad time consuming, but easy enough for all three of my kids to get in on the action and assist.

This wreath would be perfect for my front door! I made something similar when I was little using a coat hanger and tissue paper and my mom proudly hung it every Christmas. I think the fabric and an actual wreath wire makes it look so much prettier than mine lol. I’ll have to recreate this for all of the holidays to keep my door looking festive.
