Wreaths of the Heartland
North Dakota Wreath
The state's heritage of horses, cowboys, Native American culture and the frontier inspires our wreath.
To make this wreath: Find stainless steel barbed wire at a hardware or farm supply store. Wear heavy leather gloves and long sleeves while you wrap the barbed wire around a round form, such as a plastic bucket, as many times as you wish. Finish by looping more barbed wire around the circle (ours was 15 inches wide). Draw a star pattern on paper, then trace it on leather and cut out several. Cut more leather to form a bow and "ribbon" in proportion to the size of your wreath. Attach the leather stars and toy sheriff's stars to the wreath with hot glue and florists' wire. We wired spurs and a child's cowboy boot to the center opening.
