Use a yard of fabric and wrap it around a grapevine wreath to make a fun and easy fabric patriotic wreath!
Besides making t-shirts and Disney crafts, the other thing I love making are wreaths for our front door.
I was actually sad to take my last wreath off the door because I loved it so much, but I wanted to reuse my grapevine base so the old one had to go!
Since it’s summer the perfect solution was to replace it with a fabric patriotic wreath instead!
I’m not a huge 4th of July person. Sitting outside in the heat waiting for the sun to go down to watch a 30 minute show is not my idea of fun.
I also hate sitting in traffic trying to get home. Sometimes I can be such a grinch!
But we live on a golf course now and can go sit out on the green and watch the fireworks the county puts on. Which is my kind of celebration: close to home and I don’t have to get in the car.
But even though I don’t really care for the holiday I do love to decorate! So of course I had to throw together a simple wreath for the holiday.
What materials do you need to make this fabric Patriotic wreath?
To make this 4th of July wreath you need only 5 materials!
- Grapevine wreath
- Patriotic Fabric (found at Joann’s)
- Wooden Stars
- Hot Glue
How much fabric do you need for this project?
I bought one yard to use for this wreath.
It really depends on the size of the grapevine wreath you’re working with but one yard is a safe bet to work with!
How do you secure the fabric to the grapevine wreath?
In all honesty, draping the fabric over the wreath was not something I planned. But as I was pulling all of the materials I bought out of the bag the fabric landed on the wreath and I loved the look so much I went with it.
I folded the fabric around the wreath and then used a hair tie to secure the fabric.
Just use it like you’re putting hair in a ponytail!
Can you hang this wreath on a front door?
I would suggest only hanging it where it is covered, like on a front porch or in-between a front door/storm door.
The fabric will not hold up to the elements so keep that in mind when you go to hang it on your door!
This simple fabric patriotic wreath takes 20 minutes to make and is a fun afternoon craft to throw together.
You can use any type of fabric to customize the look of your wreath but my favorite is cotton because it’s thin and easy to manipulate.
This simple fabric patriotic wreath is:
- perfect for beginners,
- easy to make, and
- uses only 5 materials!
I think I was spoiled as a kid when it comes to 4th of July fireworks. We lived on the water so I could watch the fireworks from the comfort of home. Every now and again we would be in another city for the 4th, but somehow we always managed to find the perfect spot. I love the wreath idea. It is festive and has a rustic feel.
This is such a cute idea. I’m a little crafty DIY challenged and even I can do this. Thanks.
Oh my gosh, I love that fabric! I’m not the craftiest person in the world, but I think I could do this!
This is such a cute idea. I’d love to give it a try.
I love your patriotic wreath! It would be perfect for 4th of July celebrations and you will have the coolest wreath in the neighborhood.
This is a super cute idea. We love celebrating 4th of July where we live with parades and fireworks!
That is so cute! I am so not crafty. I really admire those that can make such beautiful things!
This is just too cute!! I love the 4th of July and am a sucker for cute wreaths! Pinning!
that is too cute. I really like the simple and patriotic look it has.
So cute and easy to make. I made one last year that was so time consuming. This looks easier.
How beautiful! I’ve never made a wreath, but I have seen so many great DIYs on the blogs I read.
I don’t know why, but I have always been drawn to red, white and blue decor. I absolutely love it and will gladly display it any time of year. This is a super cute wreath. I love it’s rustic look!
this is so cute and I am like you as I am always making a new wreath for something. I am not even kidding when I say this but I just made one over the weekend! lol
I’d definitely hang something like this to celebrate the holidays. I love the simplicity of this craft….we normally don’t do anything decorative for the Fourth.
I love how just a few small things brought together can make for a special craft for the holidays. I can’t wait to give this a try.
