Recycled 4th of July Wreath with Bowdabra Firecracker Bow

I love decorating my home for the 4th of July. Some of my decor is always Americana but I do like to add special decor items for the actual 4th of July. I love wreaths and have them hanging on both doors. The front door wreath is a basket of flowers and I will often change out the bow and stick something in the basket to match the theme. Do you recycle wreaths by switching out bows? It is my frugal crafty specialty which saves me time and money!!

Materials Needed:

Instructions:

1. Begin by gathering all the materials you will need to make this project. Have a new wreath or take off the bow from an old one and reuse it for this project. Here is my door wreath before making the new one.
