    How to Make a Patriotic Duck-oration Wreath

    How to Make a Patriotic Duck-oration Wreath

    My kiddos and I love rubber ducks! The obsession began a few years ago when my daughter was a young toddler. She absolutely loved ducks, so I started buying her new ducks whenever I saw one in the baby department at the store. At one point I order a bunch of ducks offline. However, when the package arrived, I discovered that these particular ducks were not safe or recommended for young children. After much thought and consideration, I decided to use the unsafe ducks as craft materials so that I could safely display the rubber ducks out of reach of my daughter but within sight for her to enjoy. My toddler son now loves rubber ducks just like his big sister!

    I started by making a Halloween duck-oration wreath and then created a Thanksgiving duck-oration wreath followed by a Christmas duck-oration wreath. I also recently made ducky wreaths for Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, and Easter. I am also a bit obsessed with making wreaths for all the other holidays and seasons of the year. Most recently I purchased some patriotic rubber ducks from Amazon so that I could create a wreath to display in my home from Memorial Day through Labor Day.

    If you too love rubber ducks, here are my simple instructions for making a patriotic duck-oration wreath.

    Materials

    Instructions

    1. Wrap the clear tape around the wire wreath.
    2. Use the needle and thread to sew the rubber ducks securely onto the wreath. Sew the ducks on with two or more stitches for maximum stability.
    3. Wrap the garland around the wreath. Weave the garland around the ducks.
    4. Use the hot glue to secure the garland as necessary on the back of the wreath.
    5. Display the patriotic duck-oration wreath.
