Shabby Chic Patriotic Wreath

This Shabby Chic Patriotic Wreath will appeal to the Teen and Tween age kids. It is a simple craft that can be created in just a few minutes with a dramatic and patriotic outcome.

Trivia: July 4, 1776 wasn’t the day that the Continental Congress decided to declare independence (they did that on July 2, 1776).


8" Embroidery Hoop (Makes 2)
3 Bandannas (red, white and blue) torn into 1" x 7" pieces (Makes 2)


Separate the embroidery hoop so that you have two rounds.

Tear Bandanna into 1" x  7"  pieces.

Using the picture as a reference, tie half of the bandanna strips around one hoop. It's that simple.

You can do this project with a friend or make a second one for yourself or as a gift.

    Great ideas, but they need to include ALL the directions. The patriotic wind sock I had to figure out, as the directiens were vague! But, I loved it and my whole class of Pre-K and K kids loved it, and it was easy enough yet still challenging for them. Thanks! Susan in Texas
