  23. Pick a blue to use from the set, either Blue Lagoon or True Blue. I chose to use True Blue. (TIP: plan where the red, white and blue will be placed. Paint enough blue area so there are even amounts of red and white areas.)

  36. Instruction #18
  37. (TIP: a great way to see how the accents look with the colors in your wreath is to paint out color swatches to see if you like the combinations!)
