I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but us Texans? We’re pretty proud that we’re Texans. I’m sure by now you have noticed that its hard to drive down any street in this state and not see at least one Texas flag flying or some other Texas pride decoration (and if you haven’t? Welcome to Tx…you’ll figure it out soon enough). That’s where this little beauty comes into play! I LOVE that its so easy to put together and aside from the fact that mine needs a much bigger star (lol it was all that I had on hand)? This DIY Texas State Flag Rag Wreath is the PERFECT weekend craft!

 

Looking for an awesome craft to showcase your love for Texas? This DIY Texas State Flag Rag Wreath should do the trick!

 

The best thing about this craft is that it really can double as a 4th of July, Labor Day or Memorial Day piece of decor as well. Just move the star and decorate however you want for the holiday you’re celebrating!

Cut your felt into strips approximately 9 ½ inches long and 1 inch wide. The strips don’t have to be perfect or completely straight just make sure their close to the right width and length.

You’ll end up with quite a few of each colored strip. Go ahead and do all 3 colors.

Starting with the blue felt strips, tie to wreath frame. I switched up where I tied the strips on the frame so the knots would all blend in.  Some strips I tied around all wires, and some I tied around just two. You can do it the way that I did or you can just tie them on. Either way is up to you.

Once you figure out which way you’re tying the strips, fill half of the frame with the blue strips.

Next, tie the white strips onto 1/4 of the empty side. Fill the rest in with the red strips.

I found my foam stars at Hobby Lobby.  Take a white star and hot glue a piece of fishing line to the back.  Tie to the wreath.  The fishing line is clear so you shouldn’t be able to see it on your wreath.  You can hot glue the star directly to the felt, but the fishing line will help it to be more secure.

 
That’s it! Hang with a wreath hanger and enjoy!
