red, white, and blue clothespin wreath

Get ready for the summer holidays with this patriotic wreath that’s covered in red, white and blue! Just line up your clothespins and glue them into place, then decorate with some felt stars and a pretty burlap bow. Read on, and we’ll show you how easy it is to make your own!
Step 1
First, paint the entire craft ring, including its side edges, with Wedding Cake paint. Let the paint dry. 
Step 2
Working one at a time, add a dab of hot glue to each clothespin and fasten it to the wreath. As you work, be sure to line up the tips of the pins around the inside of the floral & craft ring, so they stay even all the way around the wreath.

TIP: If desired, lay the clothespins around the wreath before you glue so you get an idea of the space needed.
Step 3
Finally, place red and blue star stickers onto the wreath. 
Step 4
Cut a piece of burlap ribbon that’s about a yard long. Tie it into a shoelace-style bow, then secure the center knot with a tan chenille pipe cleaner. Use the chenille pipe cleaner to attach the bow to the bottom curve of the wreath. Once the ribbon’s attached to the wreath, you can trim its ends at an angle, or in a fishtail.
