How to Make an Americana Wreath

Decorate for the upcoming Patriotic holidays with this Americana Wreath! Wrap cording around the wreath and use red, white and blue felt to create beautiful flowers. Once complete, you'll have the perfect wreath to display during your next summertime picnic or party!
  • 1 Wrap wreath in cording

    Cut three foot sections of cording and wrap around the entire wreath. Tack the cording in place with hot glue as you wrap.

  • 2 Prepare the felt

    Cut the felt into 3" x 12" rectangles. Fold felt in half lengthwise and cut 1/4" strips down the length-leaving a 1/2" uncut border.

  • 3 Create flowers

    Roll the felt and glue the bottom end into place. Fluff the loops. Make some of the flowers smaller by cutting 3" from the end (3" x 9").

  • 4 Add flowers to wreath

    Arrange and glue the flowers onto the wreath.

  • 5 Add hook

    Cut a 16" length of ribbon. Loop the ribbon around the wreath and knot the ends.
