Fourth of July Wreath

So since it's almost July, I went ahead and finished my patriotic wreath in honor of the fourth of July. It didn't take much to do since I haven't got the funds or the time for a lavish one. I went to Hobby Lobby where they were selling Fourth of July items at 40% off and picked up a white garland with tiny flags all over it. Originally it cost $4.99 but at 40% off, I got it for $2.99. Yay!


So I took a Styrofoam wreath that I had on hand and wrapped the garland around it until it was sufficiently covered. I could have left it like that but it looked a little plain so I dug through my craft closet and came up with 3 patriotic pinwheels. So I broke them off the stick, put some hot glue on the end and stuck it into the Styrofoam. It turned out way better than I could have imagined!!
