Once again the 4th of July is upon which means it’s time to get busy making all the patriotic decorations that you want to display.
Wreaths are usually a popular choice and there are plenty of cool and interesting designs to choose from so check out below some of our favorite 4th of July wreath ideas for this year and let us know if you like them as much as we do.
A festive wreath made of Skittles
This festive wreath is made with Skittles America Mix and looks fun while also being very quirky. The skittles are attached to a form wreath using hot glue so forget about eating them the next day. In addition to all this you’re also going to need some gold faux leather trim or ribbon and some faux flowers and succulents to hang and decorate the wreath with. You can find additional details about this project on akailochiclife.
Burlap ribbons and glow-in-the-dark stars
Patriotic wreaths come in all shapes and sizes and can be made of all sorts of different materials. This one was featured on inspirationsbyd and involves the following supplies: a metal wreath ring, burlap ribbons, pipe cleaners, glow in the dark stars and a hot glue gun. Make sure you get ribbons in red, blue and white or the natural burlap color.
Cute red, white and blue flowers
Burlap wreaths are very charming and for that reason they’re very popular and very versatile. It’s no surprise that there are so many interesting 4th of July wreath ideas involving burlap, including the one featured on pleasenotepaper. As usual, if you want to make something similar you’re going to need a metal wreath frame. The burlap can be plain and you can use red, white and blue flowers or other ornaments to give the wreath a themed look.
A creative use for clothespins
Less conventional materials such as clothespins can be used to make interesting-looking wreaths and it just so happens that there’s a really great tutorial on homecrafsbyali which shows you exactly how it’s done. For this project you need the following things: a wire wreath frame, wood cutout starts, acrylic paint (red, white and blue), a glue gun and clothespins (enough to cover the whole frame.
A fun display of paper pinwheels
If you want a 4th of July wreath that really pops, perhaps the idea from designimprovised can inspire you. Although it’s made around a circular foam wreath form, it looks irregular and that gives it lots of character. The design revolves around a series of paper pinwheels of different sizes and with different patterns, together forming a nice mix of red, white and blue.
The perfect straw wreath and ribbon combo
A straw wreath can also work and you can make some really cool things with it. For example, this is a 4th of July wreath featured on craftsaholicsanonymous which was decorated with red and white striped twill ribbon and blue stars burlap ribbon. There’s also a chalkboard pennant banner and that completes the design in a cool way.
A whole bunch of pom-poms
Pom-pom wreaths can also be really fun to make and you can play with all sorts of patterns and color combinations. If you’re looking to make this a patriotic 4th of July design then check out the wreath featured on flamingotoes. It’s made with red and white pom poms and little blue stars.
All the felt sheets in just the right colors
Since a 4th of July wreath uses predetermined colors that already gives you a good starting point for the design. You can play with these three colors in lots of interesting ways and achieve the combination in various different ways. A nice example is this ruffled wreath from busycreatingmemories. It’s made using a foam wreath, ribbon, felt sheets, cardstock stars, silver wire and glitter paint.
A super simple wreath wrapped in rope
We also find this rope wreath very cool. It’s basically just a foam wreath wrapped in rope (red and white), with three blue stars attached on one side. You can make the stars yourself out of cardboard or use wooden stars. Either way, this is a fairly simple project. You can find out all about it on justcraftyenough.
Textile wreath with lots of ruffles and buttons
Here’s another cool-looking 4th of July wreath, this time coming from thescrapshoppeblog. It has lots of ruffles and buttons instead of stars. If you want to craft something similar you’re going to need plenty of burlap and some denim. Don’t forget the buttons, yarn, glue and paint to color the burlap pieces.
Star-shaped wreath with lots of character
Instead of putting little stars on your 4th of July wreath, what if your entire wreath was shaped like a star? That’s exactly what this project featured on consumercrafts teaches you. Before you get started, made sure you have a grapevine wreath, a US flag star ornament for the center, spray paint, a hot glue gun and wire cutters.
A whole wreath made out of paper
You don’t need to spend much in order to make a beautiful wreath and if you like working with paper you’re really going to enjoy this project. It’s something that we found on bloominghomestead. This wreath is made using red, white and blue cardstock, a piece of cardboard, twine, white scrapbook paper, a paper mache star, silver spray paint, a paper towel tube and a glue gun.
Cute flags in a basket
What if your 4th of July wreath didn’t really look anything like a typical wreath? That could look really cool. Perhaps you’d like your wreath to be a little woven basket filled with little flags. You could hang it on your front door and everyone could grab a flag as they come in. This wonderful idea comes from dreyne.
An unexpected use for bandanas
Speaking of unusual designs, check out this cool bandana wreath from isavea22. Obviously, you’re going to need a lot of bandanas if you’re going to make a 4th of July wreath just like this one, 6 red ones, 6 blue ones and 6 white ones to be more exact. You’ll also need a metal mesh wreath, stars and a hook for hanging.
Ombre wreath made of fabric strips
This beautiful wreath featured on tellloveandparty doesn’t necessarily have a 4th of July-inspired design but it can definitely look festive if used in this regard. You can also use it as a decoration all year round or with other occasions.
The supplies needed to make such a wreath include a 12” embroidery hoop, fabric in nine color shades and scissors. You can obviously customize the design by choosing whatever colors you prefer.
Simple grapevine and berry wreath
Beautiful things are rarely complicated so it’s not surprising to find out just how easy it can be to make an amazing 4th of July wreath out of just a couple of basic things.
Take this one for instance. It’s just a grapevine wreath decorated with some ribbon and berry branches but it looks great and the addition of a few little stars adds a lot to it. You can find a tutorial for it on sunshineandmunchkins, not that you really need one given how simple this project is.
Patriotic wreath made of paper straws
It’s always super interesting and inspiring to see items and basic things being used in new and unexpected ways. Paper straws may not seem like the best candidate but look at them being used here to make a magnificent patriotic wreath.
All you need to make your own straw wreath is a craft ring or a big piece of cardboard, a bunch of red, white and blue paper straws, a glue gun and a few little stars to use as decorations. Check out homecraftsbyali for more details.
A perfect use for some patriotic ribbon
There’s all these craft supplies like ribbon, little flags and ornaments that you can find in various styles and with different prints. For instance, you can find a bunch of 4th of July supplies around this time of the year and it’s tempting to get some.
If you’re unsure how to actually put them to good use, a wreath is always a good idea. Head over to craftboxgirls to see how you can make a beautiful wreath using ribbon and a bunch of themed ornaments.
A cute wreath wrapped in a flag
There’s no shortage of American flags during summer so how about a way to incorporate them into one of your creative projects? One idea is to make a cute little 4th of July wreath.
You can start with a simple grapevine wreath and wrap a small flag or bandana around it. Decorate the remaining exposed section of the wreath with a few flowers in festive colors. You can find out more about this project on elvamdesign.
Colorful ribbon flag wreath
This doesn’t really look like a wreath but it can definitely be a cool alternative for one. It’s actually a sort of flag-inspired wall décor that you can make using ribbons. You can customize it in lots of different ways including with a 4th of July design using red, white and blue as your primary colors. For more details about the project you can check out the tutorial on seelindsay.
A simple yet complex 4th of July wreath
It has a simple aesthetic but there’s actually quite a lot going on in the design of this wreath featured on thescrapshoppeblog. The project starts with a basic straw wreath. First you wrap the whole thing with wide burlap ribbon and then you add the little details like the silver stems, the star-shaped doily, the firecracker candles and so on.
Stylish wreath with a bold design
Don’t you just love the casual way in which the flag hangs off to the side and wraps around this beautiful grapevine wreath? It looks amazing in combination with the big burlap bow and the little touches of greenery. You can find out more about this wreath and about how you can make one just like it from this tutorial on stonegableblog.
Stars, stripes and ruffles
Here’s another iteration of a ruffled 4th of July wreath. This one features natural burlap, red and cyan ruffles which gives it a nice and unique aesthetic but at the same time is quite suggestive. It’s also decorated with three cute silver stars nicely aligned at the top. Check it out on awesomewithsprinkles to get some inspiration for some of your own projects.
Puffy tulle wreath
Tulle wreaths have a charm of their own. They’re pretty easy and straightforward to make too. Begin with a solid wreath form (a straw or foam one would do just fine) and tie tulle around it in small bunches until the whole surface is covered. If you mix red, white and blue tulle you can make a lovely 4th of July wreath like the one featured on anightowlblog.
Galvanized wreath with farmhouse vibes
The type of base you use for your wreath is important because it dictates the end design in a way. That’s especially true when you use something special, like a galvanized wreath base for example. That’s just what this project from tatertotsandjello involves. In addition to that, this wreath also requires a few other things like small flags, silk flowers, greenery and a cute wooden star.
Straw wreath with removable stars
If you take away the stars, this wreath can fit in a lot of different decors and settings and is really versatile. That’s actually a great idea if you want to simply give your everyday wreath a quick makeover for the 4th of July celebration.
