DIY Patriotic Wreath…

A few weeks ago I made this patriotic wreath! I took a few pictures as I made it. It is super easy to make, and I bought everything on SALE! Everything was purchased from JoAnn Fabric and Craft Store. They always have coupons, so make sure to check your phone so that you can see what deals they have before you check out. 
To begin, I purchased the stems that I wanted to use. 

Here is what I purchased:

10 white bud stems. 
Red Ranunculus stems
 1 Grapevine wreath
Ribbon 



I was not sure what I wanted to do, so I started with the white floral stems. I wrapped them in the grapevine wreath so that they were nice at tight. 
I kept adding more and more stems. I used 5 stems on this side. 

Once I got the white stems in, I started to add a pop of red. I cut some of the red ranunculus to separate it a bit more. I used wire cutters to cut the stems. 


This is how the first side turned out.  I repeated the same technique on the other side of the wreath.

For the bows, I made a video tutorial on my instastories. If you go to my Instagram @jacquelinerendine, you can find it in my highlights. They are so easy to make!

You will need a hot glue gun, ribbon of your choice, wire, and wire cutters. 
  You need to cut 4 strips of ribbon first.

1 30 inch strip
1 20 inch strip
1 15 inch strip
1 10 inch strip

Once you cut, take the 30 inch and the 15 inch strip. Hot glue the end of the strips together. You will have two just like the picture below. 



Place the 15 inch strip on top of the 30 inch strip and cinch at the middle. It will look like the photo below. 

 Using wire, tie them together at the middle. Cut any extra wire. 
 You will then add your 20 inch strip behind the 30 inch strip. Use wire to attach and trim off any extras. For some reason, I skipped a picture on this part! Sorry!



 To attach the bow, use wire and wrap around wreath. Cut off any extra. 
I made a few extra bows for the lanterns.
