Patriotic Wreath {Tutorial}

So remember that Christmas Wreath on my crafty "to-do" list?

Well I made it & remodeled it into a little
Fourth of July *Patriotic* Wreath

It's never too early to be Patriotic right?
The best part was that it was one of the easiest crafts to make!

Here's a tutorial so you can get into the Patriotic spirit early as well...



I bought a 12" foam wreath, some festive scrapbook paper,
and red, white, and blue buttons from Hobby Lobby.
The wreath was a little thicker than what I wanted
so I ended up cutting it in half

I used my cricut cutter to cut 3 1/2 inch white stars out
to cover the foam wreath & then hot glued them in place


I trimmed off the excess foam that was still showing

Then using some patriotic paper I cut twelve 4 inch stars.
You can make smaller stars depending
on the size of your wreath



After scoring each of the 5 points, crease the stars on each line then fold the inner points the opposite way so your star forms a 3-D shape

{Aren't they cute?}


Hot glue stars down while over lapping
then add buttons & embellishments





Final step is to add ribbon for hanging


I tied a bow with one ribbon, a loop knot with the other,
hot glued them together & then glued
them to the back of the wreath



And viola! You're done!
Then you sit back and admire your work.

Enjoy!
