If you don’t live in Utah you may not know, but we have a second holiday in July on the 24th. Pioneer Day. It’s the day that we celebrate that pioneers traveled across the country in covered wagons and hand carts to come and settle here. It’s also the day that we celebrate the fact that Utah later became a state. I love Pioneer Day, I love the local history behind it and all the festivities that go on all around the state. I also love that around here we celebrate by being patriotic the whole month! I needed a new patriotic decoration to display for this month of Patriotism, so I decided to make a wreath.
I have been trying to think of a fun new wreath to make and was having a hard time coming up with something other than flowers. Then I was looking through some pictures with my boys and saw one that we took of fireworks and I finally got my idea!
I just took the top of a card board box
and traced two circles on it with a couple of different sized bowls.
Then I cut out the circle.
I cut strips of yarn.
I used 20 strips of each color, for each section.
I wrapped the yarn around card board and tied it in a knot.
With this yarn that I used I think it looks like little fireworks exploding.
You could even turn it over and show the smooth side if you wanted to add some other decorations.
I really love it!
It made a really great and easy decoration.
I hope you like it too!
Lots of Love!
