The summer months always give me an itch to add some patriotic elements to my home decor, and one of my favorite ways to do so is by crafting a fun wreath in red, white and blue. Today, I’m sharing a fourth of July DIY star wreath that is fun and easy to make and will add tons of personality to your front door, or anywhere else needing a touch of patriotic personality.
- Darice 4-inch 3D Wood Stars (3).
- Darice 12-inch Grapevine Wreath.
- Darice Rustic Tin Stars (package of 14).
- Darice 2.5-inch Red Burlap Ribbon.
- Darice 2.5-inch Ivory Burlap Ribbon.
- Blue Craft Paint.
- Foam Brush.
- Hot Glue.
Arrange the stars on the surface of the burlap-wrapped portion of the wreath until you are satisfied with the overall design. Secure each star to the wreath with hot glue, overlapping the edges of the stars for added dimension. I opted to layer some of the smallest tin stars on top of the wooden stars to create a center on each one. Note: As you adhere the stars, leave a 2-inch gap for the bow (not pictured), which will be added in the next step.
This fourth of July DIY star wreath would make a lovely statement on a front door, or displayed indoors on a wreath stand. I love to create wreaths like this one to tuck into bookshelves or display on my mantel throughout the year. Wreaths truly are one of my favorite creative projects!
I hope you’re inspired to try your hand at making a pretty Fourth of July DIY wreath for your own home. It really only takes a very small investment of time and materials to create something special to enjoy throughout the summer season!
