Make a fun and easy July 4th Patriotic Paper Wreath!

by Jillian Leslie on

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.

The paper stars are really easy to make and here is a tutorial to recreate the wreath.

Supplies:

  • 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
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun
  • Ribbon
  • 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).

If you wish to distress the stars, simply use a small sponge or applicator to apply the Distress Ink. I started by making the fold lines dark and then applied some lighter stains in between the points.

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).
