DIY Patriotic Wreath for Fourth of July

DIY Patriotic Wreath for Fourth of July

Can anyone believe that I am actually posting a holiday DIY before the actual holiday?  What is happening?  It’s the Twilight Zone, I am sure of it.

Fourth of July is coming which means all of the USA is covered in red, white, & blue for the next month.  My home felt wildly underdressed in the sea of flags and banners lining my block.

Enter this lovely DIY patriotic wreath for the Fourth of July.  Grab your handy glue gun and a good ol’ American Budweiser and get ready to craft like it’s 1776.

Did you hear that?  I think a bald eagle was just screeching in the name of freedom.

Supplies:

  • Foam wreath form
  • Stick pins
  • Hot glue gun + glue
  • Red, white, and blue burlap
  • Wooden stars painted white

Instructions:

1. Gather materials

2. Wrap the wreath form in the plain burlap (this works better if you cut a long, thin strip of burlap)

3. Cut the remainder of the burlap into 4x4in squares

4. Starting with the plain burlap, fold a square into a triangle, then fold the outer corners into the middle and pin onto the form.

5. Repeat by putting the plain burlap folds one in front of each other until they go all around the form.

6. Next, repeat steps 4 and 5 with the blue burlap, but space them between every 2 of the plain burlaps on the inside.

7. On the outside of the plain burlap, place and pin one red folded burlap in between every plain burlap fold.

8. Take the white stars and hot glue them around the wreath.

9. Once the stars are secure, flip the wreath over and hot glue/pin a strand of blue burlap to the back so it can be hung.

Hang it on the front door and let everyone know you are just as spirited as they are.

Happy DIYing!

My name is Colbie, I am 24 years old, and my life is a mess. Between two kids, work, a house, and college, I can barely keep up. And now, it’s all about being super mom… aka the one who is best dressed with the best crafts and best bake sale items. Forget the best dressed part, I normally don’t brush my teeth before running these ragamuffins around. However, on that other stuff, I kick ass. Most everything is homemade, gluten/nut free (because I was blessed with a bubble boy), and easy enough that you can do without wanting to pull a Sylvia Plath. Don’t worry, we can pull off this act together.
