Red, White and Blue Wreath

Welcome to Thankful Thursday! The challenge this week is to make a project using Red, White, and Blue! I can never have enough decorations for 4th of July, so I got my kids to help me pick out some nice fabric for this wreath. To begin, I cut about a yard of the fabric into 1"x15" strips, bought a 14" foam wreath, and this cute little freedom sign. We began to tie the strips so they overlap and none of the wreath showed underneath. The kids started out strong, but they got kind of got tired of that part, so I just finished tying it myself :)

I tied the sign in one of the loops and then made a hanger out of one of the longer pieces of fabric and tied it around to finish off the wreath.

Hope you're all having a wonderful summer and as always, we have an awesome prize, the Post-it prize pack!! So don't forget to head over to Crazy About Cricut, and enter your family project!
