I happen to love nearly all decorations that are Red, White & Blue. I keep one side of my fireplace mantle (we have a fireplace in the middle of the room) decorated with stars and stripes all year long. Some people think it’s out of place and that I just decorated for the 4th of July, but I didn’t. And I don’t care! 😉
Here’s an easy craft to get your home decked out with patriotic embellishments.
4th of July Craft: Patriotic Wreath
- Card Stock Paper in Red, White & Blue (or you could use an old wallpaper book like we did!)
- Star Stencil in multiple sizes.
First, start by cutting out a circle with a hole cut out of the middle of it for your wreath form.
Trace several red, white and blue stars in varying shapes. Cut them out.
Glue them all onto the cardboard wreath form. Place the larger ones on the bottom layer, overlapping a bit. Next, place the medium sized ones and then randomly place the smaller ones, being sure to alternate colors and sizes as much as possible.
Enjoy getting ready for food, fireworks, family and friends! In our town, they start selling fireworks on June 27th. Coming right up!
