Instructions
1. Lay out a bandana on the work surface and cut out a diagonal strip approximately 2 or 3 inches wide from the middle of the bandana.
2. Repeat step 1 on four additional bandanas.
3. Wrap one of the bandana pieces around the wreath form to verify the position.
4. Wrap the same bandana piece from the previous step around the wreath form again, this time gluing it to the form with a hot-glue gun.
5. Cut another piece of bandana in half and repeat steps 3 and 4 using one half of the piece.
6. Continue cutting and gluing bandana pieces onto the wreath form until it is completely covered.
7. Fold a bandana in half, forming a triangle. Cut off the top of the triangle, leaving approximately 5 inches of fabric on the remaining piece.
8. Fold the 5-inch section of fabric in half lengthwise and tie it into a bow. Arrange the bow until you are happy with its shape.
9. Place the faux flowers on the bottom of the wreath to verify their size and position. Cut off any excess stem using wire cutters.
10. Glue the faux flowers to the bottom of the wreath using a hot-glue gun.
11. Glue the bow onto the bottom of the wreath, between the faux flowers.
12. Cut off a section of twine. Wrap the twine around the top of the wreath, creating a loop. This will serve as a hanger for the wreath.
