Looking for something festive to hang on your door to celebrate the upcoming patriotic holidays? Let me show you how to make a patriotic door wreath from Dollar Tree. It’s a simple and budget friendly craft!

It’s time again for the monthly Creative Craft Blog Hop, graciously hosted by Andrea from Design Morsels. Be sure to check out what my talented friends have created this month! You can find links to all of their blogs at the bottom of this post.

The inspiration for my wreath came from the items I purchased at Dollar Tree while shopping for some patriotic decor for my Vintage Style Patriotic Tiered Tray.

I found this burlap style bow and the red star garland at Dollar Tree. I already had the grapevine wreath form in my stash. I never pass up a grapevine wreath form when I’m out thrifting!

Start by cutting a bunch of 5 inch pieces of floral wire and set aside.

The garland is wired, so I started by attaching it to the underside of the grapevine wreath form.

Then I began wrapping the garland around the wreath form.

Tie the garland as needed to the underside of the wreath form with floral wire to hold it in place.

Continue wrapping the garland around the wreath until you run out. Secure the end of the garland to the back of the wreath.

Twist the two ends of the wire together to create a single piece of wire. Insert it through the layers of grapevine at the top of the wreath.

At this point I could’ve stopped, but the wreath seemed like it needed something more. I tried adding some mini American flags from my stash, but it still didn’t look right.

The flags were too white against the burlap bow and the brown wreath form. So, I decided to tea stain them!

The result was subtle, but I liked it a lot better!

I stuck the flag toothpicks into the wreath in a pleasing arrangement. Use hot glue if you want the wreath to be somewhat permanent. I didn’t use glue so I can take the wreath apart later and reuse the grapevine form.

I love how it looks against my blue front door!

  1. Rebecca, this wreath is perfect for Memorial Day and the upcoming July 4th holiday! I love how you tea stained your flags. It looks wonderful! I hope you are having a good weekend, my friend!

  2. Just love a Dollar Store craft, Rebecca! And tea staining the flags makes them look vintage. Wonderful to blog hop with you 🙂

  3. Rebecca, I love how you used the tea staining to give a vintage element to the wreath. I don’t know why I always feel like Independence day needs a touch of vintage to it. You brought the vintage style perfectly with the grapevine wreath and the burlap bow! It is time for all things patriotic, isn’t it?

  4. Pinned it! Tea staining the flags is brilliant. The wreath looks especially pretty on your blue foor. Dollar Tree is great for wreath goodies. I bought quite a bit last year and am just now getting starting on the wreath for the front porch and one for the living room.

  5. I do the same thing– I don’t use hot glue so I can remake the wreath later. : ) And I can see why the flags would be too white– great idea to use the tea stain! I’ve pinned it!

  6. How fun and inspiring! I wish I could find mini flags like this; we’re actually still in lockdown so I’ll just have to live vicariously through you 🙂

  7. It’s adorable Rebecca! How smart to dye the flags with tea to give them a vintage look~ Dollar Tree is a crafter’s treasure trove sometimes, and you can’t beat grapevine wreaths, they are so fun and easy to style. You are all set for a festive Memorial Day weekend!

  8. This turned out great! What a good idea to soak the flags to give them a vintage look. It worked. The wreath really pops against your blue door. Love it.

  9. I always struggle with what type of patriotic crafts to make, Rebecca – perhaps because I’m into purple so much! But your patriotic wreath is so adorable and cute, that you’ve really inspired me to create one of my own! Thanks!

  10. Such a festive patriotic wreath Rebecca! I love that found all your embellishments at Dollar Tree and the addition of your tea-stained mini flag picks! Happy to be crafting with you again. Wishing you a Happy Memorial Day Weekend ♥
