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.
Turn the bow over and thread a 12 inch piece of floral wire through the loop.
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.
Secure the bow with the wire to the back 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!
I hope you enjoyed my post on how to make a patriotic door wreath from Dollar Tree supplies. I believe Dollar Tree also carries the mini American flags. This makes for one cheap craft project!
