I love making wreaths for each individual holiday and Independence Day is no exception! Summer is almost upon us which means even though I have the best intentions, I don’t have a lot of time to craft since the kids are home and we’re busy making memories. Here’s an easy Fourth of July wreath DIY you can pull together while your kids nap or watch a quick episode of their favorite show. Just a few supplies and you can have an adorable wreath DIY that lights up!
I’m absolutely in love with Darice Moon Lights so I love adding them as a little bit of extra flare to my wreaths. They’re optional, of course, and this wreath will look just as great without them!
Easy Fourth of July Wreath DIY Supplies:
- Darice White Star Moon Lights
- Darice 16″ Metal Wreath Form
- Darice Star Garland 25″ Strands in Red, Silver, Blue & Multi (5)
- Darice 1.5″ Red Grosgrain Ribbon
Step One. First things first, you’re going to need to pick supplies. I used three solid color strands (red, silver, and blue) and two multi-colored strands. If you decide to go with all solids I would suggest getting two strands of each. Or if you want to go with only the multi-colored garland, you’ll probably get by with just 5.
Step Two. If you’re adding lights to the wreath, wrap the strand of star moon lights first and then cover with the garland. It’s ok if some of the stars end up on the back of the wreath, you’ll pull them forward while you’re covering.
Step Three. Using small 3′ strips at a time, wrap the garland around the wreath form. You don’t have to make it super tight, just make sure the coverage is adequate. When you come to a star light try to sandwich two strands of garland around the light to secure in place.
Step Four. Wrap a generous amount of garland around the battery pack to hold in place. Don’t make it too tight because you want to be able to remove the pack to replace batteries. Make a simple grosgrain ribbon bow and attach to your wreath DIY with either an extra piece of garland or a small wire.
