Good morning! I hope everyone had a nice weekend! It was nice and sunny here and we enjoyed playing outside and gardening! I’m looking forward to Fourth of July weekend – which is all of sudden here in two weeks! June really flew by! I created this patriotic Fourth of July wreath, perfect for this time of year!
I have some gaps in my outdoor wreath collection and go from an Easter wreath to an Autumn wreath. I’d like to get a nice neutral wreath that could work all year-round, like a nice boxwood wreath. For now though, this wreath helps fill in the gap and was a snap to put together! I know I have seen many similar wreaths on Pinterest and love the look of red, white and blue with the grapevine wreath. I had an extra grapevine wreath laying around so I’m glad it finally has a purpose!!
Supplies Needed for Fourth of July Wreath:
- Grapevine wreath
- Patriotic striped ribbon
- Patriotic star ribbon
- Burlap rosette
- Miniature flags
- Hot Glue
- Needle and thread
Step One: The first thing I did was to wrap the striped ribbon around the grapevine wreath. I tucked both ends into the wreath so I didn’t need to glue anything.
Step Two: I wanted to create a rosette with the star ribbon. To do this, I cut three pieces of ribbon about 20″ long and folded each end under. I think I actually made one piece longer than 20″ so you could do the same or keep them all the same. I brought the two ends of each piece to the center and stitched them together using a small running stitch.
I pinched the center and stitched it creating a little bow.
Step Three: Sew all three of the bows together to create the rosette. I added a red burlap flower to the center.
Step Four: I broke out my hot glue gun and adhered the rosette and two miniature American flags to one side of the wreath and I was all finished!
I love how simple this wreath was to put together! It looks great on our door and looks especially pretty with our red flowers in the front yard :) I’ll be back later this week with a fun summer project tutorial. Have a great week!
