What you need

6 inch square scraps of red, white and blue fabric
pins
straw wreath

Instructions

You will need the following materials:

straw wreath– heart shape is prefered, but any shape will do

6 inch squares in red, white and blue {or whatever colors you choose for you holiday}

straight pins

Now here is the tricky part— {not really} making a little puff thingie with your 6 inch square.

Step 1: Stick the pin in one corner of the square.

Step 2: Put the pin into the center –from the front to the back–

Step 3: Put the pin in the next corner– again front to the back–

Step 4: Repeat until you have put all the centers and all the corners on the pin. Fluff it a bit to give it some puff.

Step 5: Take that same pin and push it into the wreath. Repeat the process with each square.

You will need to use 3-4 squares on each ‘row’ of color. In one corner you will need to alternate the white and the blue. The rest will be red and white alternated.

And you’re done! Isn’t that super cute?! You could totally cut up a bunch of squares and have a little wreath party with your friendly neighbors don’t you think?
