Fourth of July Wreath

This Fourth of July wreath is simple to decorate and customize.

It makes it so much more special when you create something on your own, then to just buy a pre-made wreath, and it will save you money too!

This is a perfect wreath to display on your front door to show your patriotism for Memorial Day, the Fourth of July, and for Labor Day.

Materials Needed:   

  • A grapevine wreath
  • Red, white, and blue star garland
  • Patriotic ribbon (I used some with a red and white stripes)
  • Silk flowers in red, white, and blue (I purchased two bunches of patriotic flowers, complete with a little flag)
  • Wire for hanging
  • Scissors
  • Wire cutters

Instructions for the Fourth of July Wreath

1. Begin by wrapping the star garland around the wreath, as you wrap around the entire circle of the wreath, as shown. Secure by tying the garland together from where you started.

2. Continue by wrapping the patriotic ribbon around the wreath several times, placing it in between where the garland wraps. Secure the ribbon by tying it together from where you started. Make the tie in the back, or to the left where it will be covered with silk flowers.

3. Next get your silk flowers ready. Below you will see the two bunches of silk flowers I purchased. In the summertime you will probably find something similar in your local craft store. Or, just purchase silk flowers in red, white, and blue. Using the wire cutters, cut off each silk flower from the bunch.

4. Continue making the Fourth of July wreath by taking each flower, one at a time, and placing on the left side of the wreath. Secure each flower by bending the stem following the curve of the wreath, and pushing the stem through the grapevine wreath. The branches alone are usually enough to hold the flowers in place, or you can hot glue them if necessary. Arrange the flowers in a pretty pattern along the left side and bottom of the wreath.
