- We have two fabrics, a navy blue corduroy and a white bottomweight fabric. I got a 3/8 of a yard and had plenty of extra, so you can get away with 1/4 yard of each. I purposely chose two different textured fabrics just to make the strips more interesting. But you can easy use any two fabric you would like.
- 12 inch Styrofoam wreath
- One spool (30m) of red topstitching thread. This is important because I wanted that stitching will really show.
- Precut felt star stickers
- Loose Star sequence
- One 4x6 American Flag
- One package of craft pins
Step 3: Now you are going to stitch the navy and white strip together. Slightly overlap the navy strip on the white strip. ZigZag stitch down the middle so that it catches both fabrics. You should then have one long strip of fabric.
Step 6: Decorate with the felt Star stickers. If the stickers do not stay down, add a couple of pins to hold them down.
Step 7: Take a craft pin and place in the center of the sequence and decorate as you see fit.
Step 8: Hang and enjoy!
Something that I would like to share is how much this wreath cost. Especially when you are a one income family like we are, I want to make sure that my crafting ventures are not taking us under. I like to think that I am the master of Joann deals, so I want to share with you how much the project is. And that way for you all, you will know upfront if this is project worth your time and money.
