A bandana wreath is a fun and playful wreath perfect for summer. Learn how easy it is to make a bandana wreath with this simple tutorial.
Have you seen a bandana wreath before? I just think they are so cute that I had to try my hand at making one. I chose a patriotic themed wreath for the Fourth of July, but you can easily change up the feel by what color bandanas you use.

To make your own bandana wreath, you only need these three items:
- 14 inch Wire Wreath Form (they have these at Dollar Tree right now!)
- 14 Bandanas (5 white, 5 red, 4 blue) approximate size 20-22 inches
- Fabric Scissors
I found bandanas 2/$1 at Dollar Tree, but they didn’t have white, so I picked up a few bandanas from Hobby Lobby too. They had a huge selection of awesome colors for $1 each.
If you use a wreath form that’s bigger than 14 inches, you’ll need to buy a few more bandanas. If you use a smaller wreath form, you can buy fewer bandanas.
Begin by cutting each bandana in half so you have two long, skinny pieces.
Fold each bandana strip in half, then wrap it around the wire wreath form and tie into a Lark’s Head knot. That’s just a fancy name for the kind of knot where you pull the ends through the center loop. Here’s a picture:
Repeat until the whole wreath form is full. I chose to do a red and white pattern around one side, then a patch of blue so that it would mimic the American flag.
Tighten the knots down and fluff the ends. If you’re worried about the bandanas coming loose, you could secure each knot with a bit of hot glue, but I don’t think it’s very necessary.
There you go! Isn’t that a fun project? It’s so easy, but turns out so cute. It would make a fantastic craft project to do with friends or to make at summer camp.
The big question is: what color of bandanas are you going to choose?
