This sunflower bandana wreath is so adorable and perfect for summer. Best of all, bandana wreaths are so easy to assemble. I made a quick video tutorial for how to create your very own adorable sunflower bandana wreath. I will show you tips on how to keep it from drooping and I’ve also included a video tutorial for a no-fail wreath creation. Summer is officially here! If you have been following Smart School House for awhile, then you know I love making quick and easy decorations for various holidays and seasons.
Sunflower Bandana Wreath
Where can you find bandanas for this wreath? Check your local craft store! I got these at Hobby Lobby and I’m pretty sure they have them at Walmart too. Or, you can order them online for a great price. Find the yellow ones HERE and the green ones HERE. You will also need a wreath frame like THIS.
In all, you will need about 11 bandanas. You will begin by cutting each bandana in half. They are square so this part is very easy. Once they are cut in half, you will then fold them (as seen in the video below).
DIY Sunflower Bandana Wreath Video:
The yellow bandanas are secured to the wreath frame in knots. Make a loop around the wire wreath and then pull the ends through the loop you just made.
I made the sunflower’s stem by cutting green bandanas in half and tying them together
Once the wreath frame is filled with bandanas, “fluff” the sunflower petals so the wreath has a fuller appearance. Now you’re reading to hang it! A sunflower bandana wreath is very light, so it can be hung easily using a wreath hanger or garden hook. I put ours outside on a hook:)
Depending on the weather and amount of time the sunflower wreath is hanging, the fluffed up sunflower petals might begin to droop. To prevent this from happening, fabric stiffening spray (LIKE THIS) works great!
