With the 4th of July right around the corner, I wanted to make an easy and fun last minute project to decorate our home. I love having red white and blue decorations up all summer long, and I came up with this quick wreath to combine some of my favorite trends- burlap and tin stars- in a fabulous nod to the fourth of July!
This wreath is super easy, which makes it a great project for beginner crafters, or an extra festive design before a 4th of July BBQ! It’s also cute enough to keep up all summer long!
To make this wreath, you’ll need:
1 Large Styrofoam wreath form
1 ½ yards burlap
6 tin stars- 2 each of red, white and blue
Hot Glue and Hot Glue Gun
To start, cut burlap in half, width-wise.
Next, cut into long thin strips, about 2” thick. These don’t need to be exact, but they do need to be thin enough to fold easily.
When you’ve cut your burlap into strips, fold the strips into large, fluffy flower-like shapes and glue onto wreath form.
Work around the wreath until the entire wreath form is filled in.
Place tin stars around wreath and space out evenly.
Pin in place (you can hot glue them, but I like to pin them so the wreath can be re-purposed for another holiday).
Hang and enjoy!
If you can’t hang the wreath form directly on your door, I like to wrap a jute string around the wreath at the top to hang it from. It’s a quick and easy solution that matches the burlap perfectly!
