Hooray for the Red, White, and Blue!




I made this to hang on the wall on our front porch. The base is a 14-inch diameter green Styrofoam wreath. I purchased 1/2 yard of red, white, and blue $2 per yard fabric from Wal-Mart. I used my rotary cutter and cut the fabric into 3-inch squares. I gathered up each square around a size 7 steel crochet hook using the blunt end and pushed it into the wreath. You can use a small screwdriver. The directions said to use glue, but I did not find it necessary. I made the bow using left-over fabric.
