How to Make an Old Glory Patriotic Wreath in less than 5 minutes!
Old Glory Patriotic Wreath DIY

When I was a little girl growing up my Father flew the American flag for every national holiday.  Our front porch had white pillars and I remember a silver bracket being attached to the pillar closest to the sidewalk.  I used to look forward to the days when the flag would be hung.   I loved to sit on the porch and just watch the flag blow gently with the wind.

Moments like those (and so many more) helped to give me a love for this country and all things American.  When I bought my house one of the very first things I did was buy an American flag, a pole and a bracket and I hung the flag proudly from my porch.  I still fly the American Flag often.  Over the years I’ve gone through quite a few and have always retired them properly.  I did have one, though, that I have not taken the proper steps with (yet) and since the 4th of July is just a few days away I  decided to display it in the form of a wreath.

I recycled a grapevine wreath that I previously used for autumn door decor.  I took everything off but there was one very stubborn faux hydrangea that refused to come off so I decided to go with it and just leave it in place.  Works for me! You could instead add some other greenery or a metal star in its place.

I tucked the flag, stars to the left, over one side of the grapevine wreath, holding in place with safety pins.

I draped the flag across the wreath gathering it with raffia and tied it tightly around the opposite side of the wreath.

I then tied the raffia in a bow allowing the ends to hang and flow with the striped side of the wreath.

I really love how this turned out.  The flag looks beautiful and gets another chance to be respected and admired and it’s a wonderful way to welcome guests!
