I’m back with another wreath DIY for you! Like I mentioned in my last wreath DIY, I have totally been loving wreaths this year. I wanted to create something I can hang up for the 4th of July, so I actually used the wreath from my Spring and Summer wreath project, and took out the light blue flowers and replaced them with red ones. I took off our painted “J” and added in a painted American flag. I thought I would completely mess up the flag trying to paint tiny stars, which is the only reason I did one big one. I was thinking a red, white and blue painted star would look awesome too. I’ll show you below how I did the flag. All I needed for this project (since I used another wreath I had) was 3 red flowers, which were on sale at Michael’s for 60% off – I got them for about $1.20/flower. The little piece of wood was also from Michael’s, and it was 99 cents. I used paints I had for that – so to do this wreath, it cost me less than $5! If you need everything, you could get it all for under $15! You can literally use any type of wreath you have lying around.
Here’s the piece of wood I used for the flag:
I used Painter’s Tape to tape of the blue corner of the flag:
I pretty much free handed the rest, it doesn’t need to be perfect. I think it not looking perfect makes it look a little more original 🙂
The flower stems are pretty long, so I used wire cutters to cut to about this length here…I then just slide the flowers into the wreath since the one I used is a grapevine wreath…
And to hang it, I used a piece of burlap because our front door doesn’t have enough space at the top to fit a wreath hanger…
I’m super happy with the outcome!
What do you think?! Have you made a 4th of July wreath? I would love to see!
