Hey, everyone! The Fourth of July is almost here, so I though I’d share a really easy patriotic 4th of July wreath tutorial. You can make this red, white and blue wreath with your kids using inexpensive supplies from the dollar store! I actually made this patriotic Fourth of July wreath last year with my kids, and I can’t wait to put it back up on the front door!
My kids and I love to decorate our front door for the holidays throughout the year, so we needed a Fourth of July wreath. Since we didn’t already have a red, white and blue wreath, we picked up some supplies from our local dollar store for our patriotic wreath craft project.
For just $3.21 in supplies, I purchased: a grapevine wreath, a red and white polka dot gift-wrapping bow, and a spool of red, white and blue ribbon. For the project, I also used some twine that I already had on hand at home.

One Saturday morning, my girls and I got to work. We cut small strands of red, white and blue ribbon and tied them on to the grapevine wreath. At the bottom of the wreath, I tied on our big red and white polka dot bow with some twine.
Using some stencils, one of my daughter cut out some red, white and blue stars from some old scrapbook paper that I had. She did a great job!
I punched holes in the center of each star with a hole punch, and we tied on our stars with twine. I also used the twine to secure the big polka dot bow. My girls had fun taking photos of our progress along the way – they are pretty good photographers!

After only about 30 minutes of work, we had a completed (and cute) Fourth of July wreath – crafting with my daughters makes any crafting job a lot quicker and a ton more fun! I just love crafting with my kids.
My family is looking forward to celebrating our Fourth of July holiday together!
