How To Make An American Flag Grapevine Wreath

| | |

I want to show you a beautiful patriotic wreath. This post will show you how to make an American flag grapevine wreath for your front door.

For some time now, I have wanted to make an American Flag Wreath for my front door. Did you know that in some States the purchasing of an American flag is tax exempt? That was a pleasant surprise. In fact, I did a little research on it.

American Flags are tax exempt in Connecticut, Florida, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. California and Vermont, if sold by or to tax-exempt Veteran’s organizations. Tennessee, it is tax exempt if sold by a nonprofit organization. Virginia, if sold by a government agency.

The American Flag

Why is the American flag an important symbol?

The American flag is a symbol of freedom, liberty, justice and a love for one’s country. It represents a source of pride and unity for all Americans.

What do the colors on the flags mean?

  • Red: valor and bravery
  • White: purity and innocence
  • Blue: vigilance, perseverance, and justice

Why are there 7 red and 6 white stripes?

Today the flag consists of 13 horizontal stripes, seven red alternating with six white. The stripes represent the original 13 Colonies.

How many stars are on the American Flag?

There are 50 stars that represent the 50 states of the Union.

AMAZING that there have been 27 versions of the American Flag since the original in 1777!

  • 20″ Grapevine Wreath
  • 5 x 3 Cotton Fade Proof American Flag
  • Rubber Band
  • Bunch White Flowers of Choice (cut a part)
  • Ribbon (to hide the rubber band & to hang)

1. Drape The Flag

I am using a 20″ grapevine wreath. A 3 x 5 fabric flag will fit a 20″ or smaller grapevine wreath. If you want a larger wreath, you will need a larger flag as well.

You will neatly gather the flag and wrap it around from one side to the other. Try to let the blue and white stars show.

You can use a rubber band or ponytail holder to tie the two ends of the flag together. A decorative piece of ribbon can be used to hide the rubber band. A knot is tied to the back and trim the extra ribbon.

2. Add White Flowers

Cut the stems of the miniature white roses approximately 1 inch. Begin to work the roses around one side of the flag into the grapevine. You will not need glue. Of course, you can use hot glue gun or Quick Dry Tacky Glue. However, I worked the stems into the grapevine, and they were pretty secured.

3. Create Loop To hang

You can use a piece of strap ribbon to make a loop and knot tie it on the back of the grapevine wreath. With scissors, you can trim the long tails of the ribbons.

  4. (d) The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery. It should never be festooned, drawn back, nor up, in folds, but always allowed to fall free.
