Bandana Wreath

Author: Amanda Formaro


  • 12-15 bandanas I used 5 teal, 5 white and 3 coral
  • 12- inch wire wreath form
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun
  • 2 large trash bags or dollar store plastic tablecloth
  • Water-resistant fabric stiffener
  • Large paintbrush
  • 15 sheets of paper


  • Cut each bandana in half.
  • Take one of the bandana halves and gather it together lengthwise, then fold it in half so that you have a loop at one end.
  • Place the open ends of the bandana underneath the wreath form. The open ends will be in the center of the wreath form and the loop will be on the outside.
  • Pass the open ends of the bandana over the wreath form and insert into the loop end then pull tight.
  • Repeat this process with all the bandanas (or as many as you like), tightening and squishing them all together until it suits you.
  • Use hot glue to secure the knots so that they do not loosen.
  • Fluff out the ends of each bandana.
  • Line work surface with plastic trash bags or tablecloth.
  • use paintbrush to apply fabric stiffener to the ends of each bandana. Saturate each piece, but it shouldn't be dripping off.
  • Form each bandana end so that it is open and "poofed" out.
  • Tear each piece of paper in half and crumple into a ball. Place a crumpled ball into the end of each bandana to help hold its shape while the stiffener dries.
  • Allow to dry 24 hours or whatever is recommended on your stiffener bottle then remove crumpled paper and hang your wreath!
