A fun & funky Fourth of July wreath

It’s Friday so let’s have a little fun. Can you guess the secret ingredient for this July 4th Wreath? I did a double take when I saw the tutorial for this patriotic wreath from Fit Crafty Stylish & Happy. Page on down to see how Cassidy made her patriotic summertime wreath.

What’s your guess? Pasta? Wood pieces? Beads? How about red licorice! How clever is that? Cassidy camouflaged the licorice by painting her wreath blue, though I think it’s pretty in red, too. (If you spray paint your wreath, be sure the foam is covered by the candy, as many spray paints contain solvents that might melt the foam.) She even painted red stripes on her muslin hanger, making it the perfect complement for the blue wreath.

Cassidy used Twizzler Bits to create the mosaic on her wreath. Genius!

Do you remember the Gumball Wreath from last week? That was Cassidy’s work, too. She’s so creative!
