Happy 4th of July! Plus a Pennant Rope Wreath

HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY LOVELIES!!! 

I hope you’re enjoying the day with your family and friends!

I wanted to share my patriotic wreath with you dolls today, just for fun…

Fourth of July Door

Here’s my front door – one patriotic rope wreath, two flags from Wal-Mart and a cute doggie later. 😉

To make the rope wreath I used one of the hubs’ old discarded ropes. I’ve talked about them before here.
Then I used some old denim jeans and some red/white bandanna paisley fabric to make the pennants.

You can see my “pattern” in the above photo. I just cut a triangle out of cardboard then cut around it through the fabric.
I placed two pieces of denim for one pennant then two pieces of the paisley front to back to make each of the alternating pennants. Then I sewed up the sides leaving the top quarter inch on each side un-sewn.

I used some red cord and sewed the top of each pennant closed with the cord towards the inside. See the photo above.
I sewed a hanger from the paisley fabric, wrapped it around the rope and sewed it closed by hand.

That’s it! Super easy and fairly quick!

Please ignore the scratches on the door… They’re from my barbed wire wreath…
Guess the door needs another coat of paint.

Enjoy the rest of your Fourth celebrations friends!

Linking this here and here and to these.
