My husband always groans when I come home with supplies to make a new wreath, but I love how easily they can update a room or brighten our front door. With Memorial Day just a couple of weeks ago and the 4th of July coming up soon, I decided to pick up a few simple supplies from JoAnn’s to make a patriotic wreath that I can use in my decor. One of my favorite wreath forms to use are grapevine wreaths because the wreath itself is part of the decor and you don’t have to do a lot to add a little extra something to it to make it your own. The best part is that it only took 15 minutes to put together from start to finish!
To make your own patriotic wreath, you’ll want to grab the following supplies:
- 12″ grapevine wreath
- bead/berry picks (found by the wreath making supplies)
- 1/2″ ribbon
- safety pin
As for making the wreath, I decided to try something a little different and create a video tutorial! I’m hoping to incorporate more videos for recipes and crafts in my posts to change things up a bit. If you have any questions about the process, please let me know!
In all, I spent less than $10 for everything and for only 15 minutes of my time, which is important to me because I only have so much time to craft. I love how my new wreath turned out and it’s currently sitting in my kitchen/living room area being all patriotic and reminding me why I love the 4th of July. Independence Day is in my top 3 favorite holidays and I love everything about it (except parades, I know I’m probably in the minority).
Do you decorate for patriotic holidays? What do you usually do to celebrate?
