Easy 4th of July Wreath

Hi Friends !
 
I hope you are doing well.
 
 I am enjoying a break from our early heat wave !
 
I was working on this easy wreath.
 

 
 
 
This is the base that I used,  It was a Christmas wreath.
 
The diameter is 9''. 
 
My dollar store had SO MANY after Mardi Gras was over, they marked them down to FREE !
 
 
Yes, please and thank you very much!
 

 
 
I just cut off the tinsel.....and this is the wreath frame.
 
I used scissors to cut off the top hanging loop.
 
 

 
 
 
I used this velvet type bow, but you can use other ribbon or fabric
 
with stars and stripes.
 
The bow was easy to take apart. It was held together with a twist tie.
 


 
 
To make the number 4,  I used 3 of these thin wood
 
plant sticks.

 
 
 
 

I started with the star material, I wrapped about 1/4 of the wreath.
 
 
Then used hot glue to hold in place.
 
 

 

 
 
Then wrapped the stripes
 
 
 
 
When I finished the wreath it looked like this-
 
 
 
 
Lay your wood pieces out. Mark where you need to cut.
 
This thin wood can be cut with scissors.

 


Use wood glue or white glue to hold your '4' together.
 


 I use white acrylic paint, and a black paint pen to write July.







 

 
I used hot glue to attach to wreath.
 

 

This small wreath can sit on a shelf.

I put mine on the mantle.

What do you think ?

Let me know if you like this wreath and plan to make it !

    1. Jennifer,
      A long while after the holiday....when it has been hanging around too long. My 99 cent store puts a cart out marked free. People go crazy. In Febuary we had candy canes and wrapping paper...for about 20 mins. :)
      I just happened to be there when these MARDI GRAS wreaths were free. xo Lisa S
