4th of July Wreath ~ Independence Day

This time of year signifies true summer season in full swing – at least on this side of the globe. It also means that for us in the U.S.A. we celebrate the birth of our nation. It’s one of my favorite holidays. So, of course, in true Reduce, Reuse, REFASHION fun, I wanted to share with you this easy and simple DIY 4th of July wreath for Independence Day.

If you remember, a few years ago I made buntings from a denim curtain panel and two flat sheets. (tutorial HERE). I’ve been wanting to make a simple wreath to coordinate with those, so I thought today’s Reduce, Reuse, REFASHION Tuesday is the perfect time to get one done.

While you can make this 4th of July wreath in the same fashion I did, you can also make it in any color scheme for any holiday or decor situation. Here’s what you’ll need to make one too:

Tools & Supplies:

STEP 1

First, I take my pool noodle and cut it to make a 13″ diameter circle with ends joined. Tape the ends together flush. Feel free to make it any size you like. I’m just sharing what I did for mine.

STEP 2

Next, we take our burlap (or other fabric) and wrap it around the wreath. I cut lengths of 3″ width and as long as I could make each one. Because I’m using my scraps, I have two different colors of burlap that fit the job. Also, you could use burlap ribbon. This is just a more cost-effective option.

STEP 3

In this step we take our fabric choices and start to shape the wreath. I begin by cutting 4 pieces of denim approximately 3″ x 5″. Using a fan folding method, I take each piece, fold it in half on the long side, glue ends together.

Then, take each separate fanned piece and glue them together.

If you notice in the finished wreath, I made one large denim one, and then the rest were a bit smaller. For those cut sizes, I used pieces cut 2″ x 4″ and assembled in the same manner.

STEP 4

Now it’s time to add the florets we’re making to the wreath. Simply add a bead of glue to the back and let cool.

Then, continue to make florets and layer them around your wreath.

STEP 5

Either before you add florets, or before you get all the way around, add a hanger. I used upholstery webbing to make a hanger. Feel free to use whatever you like.

Last, but not least, add as many wooden stars as you like. Feel free to add other embellishments too.

WRAP-UP

Our wreath is finished and ready to dress up any door, window, wall…you get the idea.

Also, I wanted to show you my gift to self for my birthday a few weeks ago in my blogger interview. I shared how I was yanking out the ugly pine bushes and dead holly bush that had been hiding the front of my house for years.

It will all fill in beautifully over the next few years. Not only does it open up the front of our house for wheelchairs, etc. to actually pass by on our sidewalk, but it really updated the feel of our home.
