Last week, we made what we ended up naming The LA Police Gear Tactical Wreath. Now that we are giving it away as part of our Instagram contest, some of you probably would like to know how we came up with the idea, a step-by-step process on how we made it, and what items are on it. And even if you don’t care about any of that, we’re going to talk about how you can have a chance at winning this Tactical Wreath!


Part One: The Idea

You’ve definitely seen “tactical” wreaths before. And if you haven’t, go ahead and search it on Google. See all the cool wreaths made of tactical gear?


We don’t either. The closest you get is shotgun shell wreaths, which are cool, but are not really what we would consider tactical. Where’s the paracord? An EDC flashlight? Airport-friendly belt? A folding knife? Work gloves? So we got to the drawing board and came up with the idea of just making our very own Tactical Wreath.




Part Two: The Components

The LA Police Gear Tactical Wreath is made with:

Tru-Spec Paracord

Mechanix Wear The Original and Utility Gloves

Voodoo Tactical Desert Scarf

LA Police Gear American Flag Hat

Humvee Lightsticks

LA Police Gear Patch

.50 Cal Bottle Opener

5.11 Tactical TDU Belt

Brite Strike Light Strip

LA Police Gear Sport Watch

Streamlight ProTac HL

Plus some promotional trinkets thrown in.

Once you have all of this, follow these step-by-step instructions to make your own tactical wreath.


Part Three: The Wreath


Step One – Acquire wreath frame


Step Two – Make the rest of the wreath


Instructions unclear? Maybe you should just try and win the one that we’ve made.
