Hi crafters, Mary back here and so excited to share my Ribbon Tie 4th of July Wreath with you. This is an easy no sew project that you can sit and whip up in an afternoon. These can be made so many ways with all sorts of whatever ribbon your heart desires!

Supplies you will need:
•Glue gun
•Mix of ribbon, I used 30 yards
•Wreath form (I found mine at Hobby Lobby, Walmart also has them)
•Flowers for the middle if you choose

Patriotic Ribbon and Trim
First we need to wrap the wreath form in ribbon as part of it will show through, so I chose navy as my cover color. I used 3 inch ribbon which worked perfect for this. This ribbon was not included in the 30 yards, I counted by the way.

I cut my ribbon into 14.5 inch strips, tied on with double knots onto the wreath, cut the ends at a diagonal and heat sealed with my lighter. Repeat until your wreath is fully covered, using your 3/8 inch ribbon to fill in any gaps.

I really loved the glitter ribbon for this project. It really sets off the wreath and reminds me of fireworks and sparklers! I also used the cut out stars ribbon and backed it with white to make the stars pop. You could just stop here and have a great wreath, I’m going to go on and add a little more though!

For your next step if you would like something in the middle of the wreath measure a length of ribbon across and attach to the sides with your glue gun. I placed little sequin bows on top of where I attached the ribbon to the wreath. I attached three flowers to my ribbon strand in the middle and scrabble tiles to spell out “USA”. These items were top heavy and caused my ribbon to flip, so my easy solution was to create another ribbon strand with a wider width to the back and then glue my flower strand onto that!

So there you are, pretty easy right?!! As I was making this I thought another version of this that would be cool to make is to do a section with the cutout stars ribbon (upper left) and then the rest in stripes of red and white ribbon to make a flag! You can also make this more country style by using off whites and lace. Lots of possibilities!!

As always thank you so much for having me here, I really hope you enjoy making your very own ribbon tie wreath!!

Thank you so much Mary! This wreath is adorable and so patriotic. I love the other options that you suggest to create your very own, one of a kind wreath. With a little change in ribbon color and design, you could have a beautiful and festive wreath for any and every holiday, celebration or everyday fun. Thank you again Mary!

I have to admit…I love wreaths but I REALLLLLY love wreaths for a 4th of July celebration. My favorite color is radiant red so couple that with bold blue and whimsical white, and I think that may just be the main reason I especially love 4th of July specific wreaths. How about you? Here are a few more fabulous wreaths perfect for fireworks, parades, BBQs, and all of your other 4th of July festivities…

      Hi Tara, the white is a burlap flower and the others are the “large fleur” in cranberry and navy all from TRR, thank you so much for following along!
