I wasn't sure how to photograph the last step. You take the ends and cross them through the middle of the wreath and then tie them on the outside.
We celebrated the Fourth on the third at our next door neighbor's house. They throw a big shindig every year and last year we went. They host a big ladder ball tournament. Players are teamed by lot and everyone throws a couple of dollars in the pot. The tournament is two pools with double elimination.
Last year me and my partner won after losing and coming from the bottom of our bracket (my first time playing ladder ball). So this year we were asked to defend our title. We won again (this time without losing a single match). They plan to split us up next year.
