I saw this last spring and really loved it.

Um, hi, can you say so so stinkin adorable?!?! I loved it.
I, however, had just finished making my spring wreath.
Boo. So I decided to put it on the back burner...until I had the idea to make a festive 4th of July wreath instead.
I basically love it. I followed Linda’s tutorial for the most part, which is fantastic by the way.
I did make a few changes.
Here’s what I did.
Linda used felt. Walmart basically sucks noodles and didn’t have ANY blue felt.
So I decided to improvise and use ribbon.
I gathered all the red, white, and blue ribbon and buttons I could find. And I bought a wreath.
Then I followed Linda’s instructions for making the flowers.
Just make loops and then fold the ribbon at an angle and put a little hot glue to hold it. The angle you fold makes all the difference, as you might see with some of my flowers. It took me a minute to figure out how to make them all the same.
I ran out of ribbon while making this flower
So I just glued the start of new ribbon where it left off and kept going.
I had fun figuring out how to make different shapes and loops and little ones and big ones.
I love this little guy.
And this one’s a star. Cute cute cute!!
Then I just glued them onto the wreath and fastened a ribbon on with more hot glue.
I think it turned out perfectly!
Festive and oh so cute!
And fairly simple. It took me an hour, start to finish.
It was a naptime masterpiece!!
There I am in the reflection. Nice.
Thank you, Linda! You rock!!!
