4th of July Wreath

I have a very large twig wreath in my entryway that I like to decorate according to the holidays. For the summer I have it decorated in red, white and blue from Memorial day to Labor day. I wrapped the wreath in red and white stripped ribbon. I then strung some gold star garland around the wreath, sticking it behind twigs occassionally to keep it in place. Finally, I took some leftover red and white ribbon and blue ribbon and made 2 bows which I placed on top of each other to one side of the wreath, again using a twig to hold them in place. It is very simple and inexpensive to decorate. Often you can buy spools of holiday themed ribbon for anywhere from $1-$5. The possibilities for decorating this wreath would really be endless.
