One of my little challenges for this year is to make a wreath for my front door for every season/holiday. I just love the welcoming feel a wreath provides.
So of course, I had to come up with a design for the 4th of July! I love the end result and I hope you will too.
Make a mix of red, white and blue cardstock different sized stars to create your very own wreath
It's the ultimate party decoration for your front door or a wall.
Make a fun and easy July 4th Patriotic Paper Wreath!
The paper stars are really easy to make and here is a tutorial to recreate the wreath.
- Wreath (I used a wire wreath but took out the inner and outer rings to make it thinner)
- Red, white, blue card stock (I found the lovely blue one at Michael's)
- Star template download
- Hot glue gun
- Optional: A scorer for easier folding
- Optional: Distress Ink (I used the color Frayed Burlap)
Directions:Use the template to cut out stars in three different sizes. For each star, score from one point to opposite inner angle like shown by the line. Repeat for all 5 points. Fold on every line.
Pinch each point to get the 3D effect (it helps to pinch the points two by two).
Once you have a selection of stars ready, you can hot glue them to the wireframe. Use a ribbon to hang (I used red burlap).July 4th party ideas and free July 4th party printables from our site!
