Can you believe the 4th of July is just a few weeks away? It has always been one of my favorite holidays, I love the fireworks, the food and gathering around the bon fire on a warm summer night. Love.
Anyway, I’m excited to be part of a fun Celebrate Summer Series that includes 10 other bloggers. Yesterday, Kristin from Bliss At Home shared a fun DIY Butterfly Art, today I’m sharing a DIY Fourth of July Wreath and tomorrow be sure to check out Kelly over at The Lilypad Cottage.
DIY Fourth of July Wreath
My little mini DIY Fourth of July Wreath is my own take on a patriotic wreath. I generally lean toward more neutral home decor and I really liked the simplicity of the read and the cream.
And now that I have a mini wreath, I may just have to do a full Fourth of July vignette! What do you think?
Tips For An Easy Fourth of July Wreath
When starting a project, I never really know how it is going to turn out. I am really indecisive and generally my final product ends up looking nothing of what I originally envisioned. I play around a lot! Take for a example all of the supplies I brought out for this project. I dug through my fabric bins and pulled out every red, white, blue and gray piece of fabric I could find and gathered a collection of buttons. But alas, I went with the neutrals :)
Supplies for this project:
– Small 8″ Floral Wreath
– Cream Linen (I actually cut up an old basket liner)
– Red Burlap
– Iron on Fabric Interfacing
– Straight Pins for fastening and/or hot glue
– Old Buttons
I tarted by covering the foam wreath in the cream linen material and fastening it with straight pins. This way it will be easier to remove the fabric if I ever decided to take it a part and make something new!
Next, I ironing on the fabric interfacing to help make the fabric more stiff and easier to work with. And then I cut out both large and small stars and put it all together with hot glue. So easy and a nice little addition of patriotic home decor.
