DIY: Make A Patriotic Wreath


I love how this wreath turned out. It's perfect for Fourth of July, Flag Day, Memorial Day or every day!

WHAT YOU NEED




Step 1

Wrap your wreath form with clear packing tape so it's smooth.


Step 2

Paint the wooden stars white. Apply additional coats as needed.


Step 3

Cut tulle into 22-inch long strips.


Tip: Measure the distance from the edge of a table and mark with masking tape. It makes cutting easy.


Step 4

Fold a strip in half and place it under the wreath form. Thread the two ends through the loop and pull. I alternated two red, two white.


Step 5

Save one fourth section of the wreath for your blue tulle, fastening it just like you did the red and white.


Step 6

Spray the stars and wreath with glitter spray. If you prefer, you can buy glitter tulle, but it's more expensive.


Step 7

Glue the stars onto the blue section of your wreath.
