Indepence Day

What a great day a day to celebrate America's 235th Birthday, but a very cute craft. A flag wreath to put out on the door to welcome everyone that see's it.

I found a great tutorial here from My Green Brea Cottage. I saw it and instantly knew I had to make it. It was so cute and so festive and perfect to keep up all summer long.

This is how mine came out. I used about one yard in total of fabric, I bought the 2 3/4 yards the blog called for but didn't use anywhere near that amount.

I made the "stripes" the same way by alternating 5 ties of red and white, and a total of about 20 blue ties. They were all scrunched together and I just love it.

Hope you enjoy it as well.

Adding the ties.
