DIY: Make Patriotic Wreath
I came across this wreath on Pinterest and just had to try it. After all, it looked simple enough - and it was! This is a great way to decorate your door for Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Flag Day or every day.
Log in below for instructions!
WHAT YOU NEED
- 16-inch plastic foam wreath form
- 2 white tulle, 6 inches by 25 yards
- 2 red tulle, 6 inches by 25 yards
- 1 blue tulle, 6 inches by 25 yards
- 3 wooden stars
- White paint
- Paint brush
- Spray glitter
- Clear packaging tape
- Glue gun
- Glue sticks
Wrap your wreath form with clear packing tape so it's smooth.
Paint the wooden stars white. Apply additional coats as needed.
Cut tulle into 22-inch long strips. Tip: Measure the distance from the edge of a table and mark with masking tape. It makes cutting easy.
Fold a strip in half and place it under the wreath form. Thread the two ends through the loop and pull. I alternated two red, two white.
Save one fourth section of the wreath for your blue tulle, fastening it just like you did the red and white.
Spray the stars and wreath with glitter spray. If you prefer, you can buy glitter tulle, but it's more expensive.
Glue the stars onto the blue section of your wreath.
Baseball: Choose your favorite team colors and decorate with mini plastic baseball helmets, wooden baseball cutouts or other team accessories.
Princess: Use pink and white tulle and add a play tiara, shoes and wand.
Holidays: Christmas, red and green tulle, ornaments; Valentine's Day, red and white tulle, heart cutouts; Easter, purple and yellow tulle, egg decorations; St. Patrick's Day, green and white tulle, clover cutouts; Halloween, orange and black tulle, plastic spiders and other scary stuff.
