It was time to update our front door wreath from the Easter Butterfly Wreath to something more summery. With just a few supplies and 15 minutes, I was able to give the wreath a patriotic makeover.
I bought three of these dishtowels from Dollar Tree a few years back, not really knowing what I might do with them. I stumbled upon them when I was searching my fabric stash for some red, white, and blue fabrics to use for a patriotic bunting. I was super geeked to be able to make the whole thing out of just one dishtowel, with tons of fabric to spare.
I measured off triangles that would be big enough to fit one of the dishtowel’s stars without cutting it in two. The pennants ended up being 3 3/4” by 4”. I used my pinking sheers to cut the triangles so that I wouldn’t worry about having to hem up each of the triangles.
I quickly sewed each of the triangles to a length of white grosgrain ribbon.
Depending on how long you make your bunting, you could drape it from your mantel, along your porch railing, or from the top of a doorway. I cut my bunting into two pieces and pinned them to my Year Round Wreath.
The bunting-decorated wreath matches with the rest of our red, white, and blue front porch decor. I hope you give the tutorial a try. It’s a quick and inexpensive way to make bunting that can stay up all summer long.
