If you prefer creating your own front door wreaths rather than shelling out a bunch of cash at the store for one, there’s a chance you once considered making a wreath out of bandanas – just like this one!
Even if the thought never crossed your mind, many craftsmen will likely tell you that bandana wreaths look great – right until the bandanas start drooping straight down thanks to gravity, which does not make for a pretty sight. However, this guide will perfectly demonstrate how bandanas can still make for some beautiful, creative wreaths – in no small part thanks to some handy fabric stiffener that will hold up in rain and high humidity! If you think you want to try taking on this easy, fun arts and crafts project, check out our guide below and get started.
Materials and Supplies
- 1-foot wire wreath
- 15 bandanas in preferred colors
- Hot glue gun
- 2 larger trash bags or plastic tablecloth
- 15 sheets of paper
- Large paintbrush
- Water-resistant fabric stiffener
Directions for Bandana Wreaths
- To begin, cut every bandana into halves to produce 30 bandana pieces.
- Take one bandana half, gather it lengthwise, and then fold it in half. There should be a loop on one end.
- Set the bandana half’s open ends beneath the wire wreath. The bandana’s open ends will be at the wreath’s center, with the loop on the wreath’s outside.
- Then, pass the bandana’s open ends over the wreath, inserting them into the loop end before pulling tight.
- Repeat the process with every bandana half (or however many you can fit), tightening and squeezing them together until you are satisfied.
- Using the hot glue gun, secure the bandana knots to ensure they don’t become loose. Fluff out each bandana’s ends.
- Now, choose a work surface and line it with a tablecloth or trash bags.
- Use a paintbrush to apply the fabric stiffener onto each bandana’s ends. Get every piece saturated, but they should not be dripping.
- Work the bandana ends so that they are “poofed” out and open.
- Regarding your 15 sheets of paper, tear each one in half before crumpling each half into individual balls. Place one crumpled paper ball into each bandana end to help it maintain its shape until the fabric stiffener dries.
- Let the bandanas dry for about 24 hours or for however long your chosen stiffener recommends. Once dry, remove the crumpled paper balls and hang up your bandana wreath!
