Two Patriotic Wreaths for a Festive Door

In honor of Memorial Day, I made two patriotic wreaths to hang in our home. Both wreaths are also good to be used for Fourth of July wreaths! Every Memorial Day and Fourth of July holiday I like to decorate our home and garden with a patriotic theme. This year, I thought I’d try making patriotic home decor myself.

Both of the wreaths are easy to make and won’t cost you a lot of money for the supplies. With the exception of the glue gun, I bought all of my supplies from the Dollar Tree.

P.S.– One of the fourth of July wreaths I made using a pool noodle!

The process to make both of the wreaths is very similar to my DIY Fruity Summer Wreaths. I bought Fourth of July-themed crafts from the Dollar Tree and used my glue gun to attach them to each wreath.

USA FOURTH OF JULY WREATH DIRECTIONS:

1. Put the pool noodle ends together to form a circular shape and secure it with duct tape or packaging tape.

2. Tightly wrap the first American flag scarf around the pool noodle. Make sure you spread the fabric while you are wrapping it so the design of scarf shows.

3. Secure both ends of the scarf with your hot glue gun. Remember, the glue gun is very hot so be careful when touching the scarf and using the glue.

4. Repeat step 3 for the second American flag scarf.

5. After you securely wrap and seal both scarves around the pool noodle, it’s time to place the USA hanging wall sign pieces and foam glitter stars on your wreath.

Cut the letter boards off of the ribbon of the hanging wall sign. Before gluing the letters onto your Fourth of July wreath, place the letters on the wreath to get a good idea of how you would like it to look. You can also do the same for the glitter stars.

6. Once you know where you would like the USA letter boards and foam glitter stars to go, use your hot glue gun to attach each piece to the wreath.
