Fourth of July WreathMaterials:

18 inch eucalyptus wreath

Blueberry spray paint

Hotmelt adhesive

Dried artemisia

8 large strawflowers in cream, pink and burgundy

1 bunch each of pink and purple dried statice sinuata

Spray the wreath with the blueberry spray paint. After the paint dries, glue small bunches of artemisia into the wreath, following the direction of the eucalyptus stems. Arrange the bunches so they suggest fan-shape bouquets spaces evenly around the wreath.

Glue a strawflower at the base of each of the small bunches of artemisia, alternating the colors. Press the flowers firmly but gently to make sure they're well secured to the wreath base.

Assemble the statice into bunches, keeping the colors separate. Glue one bunch beside each strawflower, over the artemisia bouquets.
