Use a yard of fabric and wrap it around a grapevine wreath to make a fun and easy fabric patriotic wreath!

Welcome friends & family to your home all summer long with this simple Patriotic wreath! Made with stars & stripes fabric, wooden stars, & a grapevine base.

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
  • Paint
  • 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?

Yes!

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!

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.

  1. 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.

  2. This is such a cute idea. I’m a little crafty DIY challenged and even I can do this. Thanks.
