Ruffly Patriotic Wreath Tutorial


If you are here from Pinterest, I'm so glad to have you here at Capital B!
 This little blog is what it is, to some degree, thanks to this stunning little wreath...




It's easy to see why, eh? There is something about it that really is just stunning!

When my friend and I made these wreaths originally, we were just wanting to spend the afternoon making something cute.  Never would've guessed then that I'd do a tutorial and get to see lots of these made from it- I love that! Hopefully it will prove helpful for you too :) If you like the wreath and use the tutorial, I'd love for you to follow Capital B on Facebook or Twitter through my social media buttons in the sidebar too- thanks!

If you might be more interested in purchasing one instead, please email me through the button in my sidebar. I may possibly have them listed in my etsy shop also...

Ok, lets make it already! 


That crumpled baggie there is what is left of the exact wreath that I made originally... truth be told, it got split to pieces just a few days after I hung it on the door!



I love taking pictures of stacks of things- just makes me smile for some silly reason. :) Ok, so take your sheets of felt- I got mine and all of the supplies for this project at Michaels- and cut them into squares about 2"x2". I did not spend any time at all making sure they were perfect- I just eyeballed it. It is important to make sure all the squares are roughly the same size, but not exact for sure. Also, these stacks above are roughly half of what you'll actually need!


Regarding "nevermind the skewers"- when my friend and I first made these, we used hard, white styrofoam wreath forms that were flat on the back and skewers to punch each felt square inside it. We really were just wingin' it and it seemed to be working! But, all those big holes we made- like this one above- no doubt contributed to the reason my wreath simply did not hold up to any kind of test! The wreath had been so weakened by those huge holes! So that's why I'd say a rounded, softer wreath is better!


Instead, I got a box of straight pins and wow! Putting it together was easier and faster for sure! And I am not one bit worried about it holding up this time. Also, the pins never came close to poking through the other side. I did want to make sure the look would be the same, so as I was getting started, I made sure to keep looking at the pics of my old wreath... I really felt like the look was identical!

Work with just one square at a time, folding corner to corner in half and then half again. Again, no science here. I noticed that not matching the corners exactly worked fine too- there will be a fair amount of adjusting as you go anyways. Pin the piece (which now looks more like a triangle) straight in at the folded tip.

I started the very first few pins putting the points together and then opening them up to look more like a bloom (above). I didn't pin my pieces all the way around the wreath- the back is still empty. If you wanted, you could cover it all, though you'd need even more felt and whatever it was hung against would squish the look of it anyway. :) Just make sure you go around far enough that you won't see the green from side to side.


As you get more pieces pinned, you're no longer putting them point to point, more like row upon row. Kind of hold the pinned pieces back and tuck new piece in close, like below:


You do want to make sure the pieces are close together, though not too close- the tighter you pin them in, the more "squished" of a look you'll have- a titch of space in between the pieces give you more room to make it look fuller in the end.

And you'll just keep going, folding and pinning, folding and pinning! Think like two movies or maybe three worth of folding and pinning... Needless to say, I did NOT make this thing in one sitting! In fact, I took the makings with me on a trip with my husband and worked on it in our hotel to begin with so I didn't have the distraction of the boys!


As you go, you'll want to watch that the outer part of each section of color is a bit wider than the inner part- like this pic above. Just pin a few more pieces on the outer edge than the middle. Again,  this wasn't measured out, just eyeballed. Also look to try and keep the white sections about the same width as the red- so you don't have thin little pieces of one or the other, but a look more like our actual flag. :)


See what I mean about "just keep going!" As you go, you'll kinda pull and adjust on the corners to get the look you want and make sure your pins and spaces are covered, like below:


Notice above about how much space I left for the blue- could've been less if you prefer as well. I like the look of both the sections bordering the blue being white too. I did work from both sides of my red and white sections as I went along- not in just a big row sort of thing, if that makes sense. I wouldn't say this matters, but it may help you keep things uniform looking too. :) Carry on folding and pinning your blue pieces once you have about the right amount of space left! And when it's all filled- woo hoo! It's pretty, eh? ;) On to the springy stars:



I did cut the stars out with my Cricut, though it's certainly not a necessary tool for this- you could freehand them with pencil and cut, or use a star punch. Mine were 1 1/2" each. I cut 14 stars out of full sheet label paper, though plain cardstock and a glue stick would be just as fine.
With all your stars cut or punched, cut yourself seven pieces of craft wire (or whatever the number of stars you want on the wreath) about 10" long or so. There were only five stars on my original wreath, but I think they're pretty fun, so I wanted a few more on this one!

Curl your wire around the crayon or pencil or whatever you are using- like in the left corner above. I used a bigger crayon, but it's all the same really. Once you pull off the curly wire, straighten it a bit again in the mid section. Then stick or glue your stars back to back on that straight part! See why I used label paper? No need for the glue made it a bit quicker, but again, anything goes. A dab of hot glue would be swell also. :)


Now adjust your curly star so it looks like you want- there really is quite a lot of adjusting and twisting the curly stars as you go, at least there was for me- making sure they bend the direction you want and all. I also liked my curl being a bit smaller at the end- just lightly grab that last bit of curl and twist by hand. :) Then straighten the opposite end a bit again- you'll stick it into the foam just like you have been the pins! It's quite a lot more flimsy, so hold it close to the base, maybe kinda move it a bit as you go. I also had to kinda push back the felt to find a place for each star.


Woo hoo- we're so close! And aren't they so cute?! I used four stars around the outer part of the wreath and then the other three just underneath and in-between those four. Again, adjust and re-curl the wires lightly to make sure they are going the way you want and compliment each other. :)


Last thing, grab whatever ribbon you desire for a hanger- I wanted mine to blend in with the door rather than stand out, so it's small and white- and trim about a 12" piece or so. Put the ends of your ribbon on top of each other to form a loop. I thought I'd be able to just use a couple of pins to hold the ribbon on the back, but they were too small at the head and the ribbon tore through. So, I punched out two straight staples from my stapler and pushed them in crisscross of each other at the ends like above instead- it held just fine for me while I was hanging and adjusting!

And there you have it!
My four year old said it "Looks like the pledge of allegiance!"
which he apparently says in preschool- bless his teacher!



Indeed, I was tempted to leave it on my door and just pretend it was summer... but then I realized I was standing in an inch of snow from the night before and wearing my awesome purple snow boots. :) So it is now listed in my previously empty etsy shop, for better or worse!

I will say, I think this is one of my favorite crafty accomplishments ever- both the original and this one. It just looks pretty and catchy. :) It takes time, but it's simple. It has feeling and movement to it. God Bless America!


I hope anyone wanting a tutorial from Pinterest (or wherever else)
finds this and finds it helpful! 
Thanks for looking!

  6. Sky - Thank you for the great tutorial. This wreath will look perfect with my bunting this summer. Your blog is lovely and I am enjoying it very much. Your life with boys is so different than my life with girls. We have one boy and seven girls so there is tons of glitter and makeup these days with three girls left at home. I am having a giveaway so I hope you will pop by. ~Kelly

  7. Sky, thank you for the amazing idea! I made this wreath and donated it to a charity auction, it was so popular I have been asked to make some more, not sure if that is ok with you? Thanks, Tracy

  9. I plan to get the supplies and make one of your flag wreaths soon. Thanks so much for the great tutorial. I'm intend to use my flag wreath year-round (I'll bring it in when it's yucky outside though). Also, I will probably laminate my stars. Didn't read every word of your tut yet so maybe you did that too. By the end I'll have read your tutorial many, many times I'm sure so that mine will look close to yours. Love, love, love it!!!

  13. I am so excited to make this wreath! My husband is about to head home from his year long deployment and I'm excited to deck out our house with the Americana theme and this is going to add the perfect touch! Once my banana bread is out of the stove I'm heading to the store! Thanks again! and God Bless :)

  16. Thanks Sky. I broke my leg a couple of weeks ago, and needed a project I can do from the couch. This looks perfect! Got my supplies today. Had to carry the foam wreaths around my neck at Michael's so I could walk with my crutches!

  17. Thanks for the tutorial! I'm making this as we speak! Do the straight pins seem to be holding up pretty well for you over time? I'm doing mine with foam safe hot glue in the hope that it will stay well put together over time and through storage. It's definitely turning out to be a lot more time consuming, so hopefully it's worth it!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Kelly- I've found that the straight pins are super sturdy for me so far :) I've actually taken a completed wreath and shaken it to test and it didn't even flinch! If it were stored flat during the time it wasn't being displayed, I have no doubt it would need nothing more than to be "re-zested" a bit when taken from storage. Hope the hot glue works out as well! I'd love to hear how it turns out! :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Super cute! Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Sky- the hot glue seems to have worked :) It probably took at least twice as long as pinning would have, so I think I will try that on my next one! It looks great though, thanks so much for sharing. Can't wait to see what I can come up with for other holidays using this idea!

  27. Great tutorial... Beautiful wreath!! Would love to have it for Memorial Day but will probably be more like July 4th! :). Going to get my supplies today! Thanks so much!

  28. Apparently I was one of the nearly 4,000 pinterest followers who pinned this to my board! I pinned it months ago and was so excited about the awesome tutorial you put together. I finished my wreath today and just adore it! Thanks! (I know Pinterest never gives credit where it is due, so I wanted to make sure to "personally" thank you!!!)

  30. Thank so very much for updating the instructions on this Beautiful Wreath! Found it via Pinterest - and added to my 4th of July Board. Being a Military Family (son in Navy -16 yrs) we love to have a Patriotic Corner set up in the living room, and this will go so nicely, I might try to make it a bit smaller tho, and use the hot glue and add in some dabs of Navy themed fabric - Your wreath is just stunning! Love it! Thanks again!

  31. Thank you for taking the time to make this tutorial for us all! I can't wait to make this and put it up soon - now that summer is almost here!

  32. Really cute! I MUST try this. I have made a red, white, and blue ribbon wreath before, but never tried one like this. It kind of has the look of the "burlap" wreaths I have seen. I really like it. What size wreath form did you use? Just a medium size? Or was it a small one? And thanks for posting the tutorial! :-)

    1. I used a 12" wreath form for this one in the tutorial, makes it about 14" across when done. I have done some on a 16" wreath form using larger felt squares- was about 20" when done- I really liked how it turned out too! Good luck in making yours! It will turn out great I'm sure! :)

    1. I bought all the supplies for this one at Michaels. I've also bought wreath forms at JoAnn's. I have a smaller local craft store that has special ordered them for me before too. Good luck in finding some and in making your wreath! :)

  35. do you happen to know what it the difference between the green foam wreaths and the white found this threw pinterest and we are making it for a pinterest night that we try to do monthly and this month it is your wreath, so i was just wondering if there is a differnce?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Some of the white foam that you see in craft stores is kinda "crispy" like. It kinda flakes off if you brush your hands on it. I have found, and used for the wreaths I've sold, some white foam wreath forms that were softer just like the green. So long as the form you are using has the more soft, smooth feel to it, rather than the flaky, crispy type, you should be good to go with either color! The crispy white foam is just more prone to break apart as it gets stressed with all the pins and weight you'll add to it, so that's why the smoother type is better :) Hope that helps and Good luck- what a fun idea to have a Pinterest night!

  37. I just wanted to say I made mine with a straw wreath because it was so much cheaper than a foam wreath (my dollar store did not have any foam ones). I just left it wrapped in plastic so it didn't make a mess. It worked out great! I also found awesome glitter star stickers in different sizes at Micheals that were super cute on the wreath as well. I think they were in the aisle with the felt.

  39. This is beautiful! I'm hoping to make it not only for the Patriotic holidays like the 4th of July but also to celebrate my daughter's birthday which is on the 4th of July and to celebrate her receiving the Stars and Stripes Award in American Heritage Girls which is equal to the Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts. Thank you so much for sharing such a great idea!

  45. Hi! It has been brought to my attention that the blog Honestly, Dyea copied one of my posts word for word and with all the pictures. There is a vague reference to my blog, but it sounds like she is presenting it as her own. I saw your tutorial on her blog as well and wanted to let you know. It's such a cute idea, and I don't think she is being very ethical. Anyway, just a heads up!

I started cutting the felt with scissors and then remembered that I had a rotary cutter that I had not used it a long time. Boy, did that make cutting the squares faster. After that, everything went together so easy. Also enjoyed my movie time. :-) Thanks for sharing.
