The Fourth of July will be here before you know it, and my front door is all decked out to celebrate! I suppose I was also influenced to get started on some patriotic decor by seeing all of the great projects on Pinterest lately. And the 50% July 4th products at Hobby Lobby didn't hurt! So...I decided to make a wreath.
This wreath could not have been simpler to make. I started with a straw wreath form (left in the plastic) and this fun red, white and blue ribbon. In order to keep the stripes somewhat lined up, I cut the ribbon into lengths that would wrap around the wreath with a little extra to fold over. I fastened each piece of ribbon with a pin.
Once I finished wrapping the wreath, I turned my foam stars into pins. I made little wells in the back of the stars with scissors, filled with hot glue and fit straight pins into the wells. Voila - cute little star pins!
Then it was time to place the star pins in different places on the wreath. I decided to go with groups of 3.
I tied a piece of white grosgrain ribbon to the top, and fastened it in place with another pin.
I tied the ribbon to the hook on my front door, and now I have a little patriotic festivity on my porch.
Have you put up any Fourth of July decorations yet?
