4th of July Wreath DIY

With the Fourth of July holiday fast approaching, have you thought about how you will decorate your home this year? Have no fear, there are many ways you can display your patriotism! We are sharing one of them today – creating a festive wreath for your home!

There are many types of wreaths you can create, such as ones made of bandanas, tulle, burlap, straws, yarn, and more. This is more about having fun – get your children involved now that school is out for the summer!

Today, we are sharing one wreath idea that is simple and festive – using the fun material, tulle. But, first things first, you will need to take a quick trip to your nearest craft store (check for coupons online first – many offer 40-50% off a single item) and pick up the following supplies, if you do not already have them:

  • Metal wreath frame
  • Red, white, and blue tulle (1 20-yard roll of each)
  • 6-inch square cardboard piece
  • Sewing shears
  • Star embellishments
  • Hot glue gun and glue

Directions:

1. Wrap the tulle around the cardboard square, starting at one end and then wrapping until you reach the end of the roll. Trim each of the folded ends of the rolled tulle with your sewing shears to form a stack of squares. Repeat this step with the red and blue tulle.

2. Gather a square of the blue tulle together, and fold the tube in half. Attach the piece to the ring of the metal wreath using a slipknot. Continue adding blue pieces in this fashion to cover 1/3 of the wreath.

3. When the blue section is complete, add alternating sections of red and white tulle using this same technique. Continue until you have covered all of the wreath with tulle.

4. To finish, use your hot glue gun to affix your star embellishments onto the blue section of your wreath. 

5. Done! Now hang that bad boy up to display your patriotism to the entire neighborhood this coming Fourth of July!
