This 4th of July Patriotic Wreath tutorial is perfect for Independence day or Memorial Day. It’s so simple and only requires a few supplies.
This summer I was determined to get the kids involved for the holidays. We have done an assortment of crafts and activities and this one was so much fun. This 4th of July patriotic wreath tutorial is easy for toddlers to be involved. My son was such a helper with painting, clipping and gluing.
For this activity, you will need the following:
- 12″ Wire Wreath
- 60 Clothes Pins
- White Wooden Stars
- Red, White & Blue Paint
- Paint Brushes
- Hot glue gun
- Hot Glue
This project is fun to do with your kids. I let my son help me paint. He had so much fun being involved.
- Paint the clothes pins. About 10 clothes pins will be painted blue. The others should be split evenly and painted red and blue
- Paint the wooden stars white. You can also buy white stickers but I really like the wooden stars since they kept a cohesive wooden overall look. I let my son paint this part because it was a little messy. You could also spray paint.
- Start clipping the clothes pins on the inner ring of the wreath. Use the pattern 3 red, 3 white all the way around. Next, fill the remaining space with the navy pins.
- Hot glue the stars to the blue area. This is an eyeball situation and depends on the size of the stars. I stuck mine on in a very calculated pattern because I’m type A.
- Hang up and admire. This is always my favorite part. Hang your wreath and then admire your craftiness. I can’t place mine on my front door because it is hot pink. So I created an outdoor space for our 4th of July party!
