DIY: 4th of July Wreath

June 22, 2017

Looking for a way to spruce up your front door for the 4th? Then grab your paints and some clothespins to build a simple 4th of July wreath, that won't go bad. 

Materials 

Instructions

  1. Start out by using metal clippers, separating the inner two rings of the wreath frame from the outer ring (in the one referenced above, you'll see there are four loops -- you only need two) 

  2. Lay out the clothespins on the wreath ring so you know how many you'll need -- be sure to alternate directions 
     

     

  3. Section off 1/3 of the clips -- you'll paint these blue

  4. From the remaining clips, paint in groups of three, alternating red and white

     

  5. When painting, be sure to paint the tips and a portion of the inside the same color to ensure that you have even color coverage
     

  6. Paint the stars white -- before they dry, sprinkle with glitter

  7. Once everything is dry, re-clip the painted clothespins onto the wreath ring -- grouping three white clothespins together, then three red, then three white and so on

  8. Lay out your stars on the blue space and attach with craft glue

  9. Hang, and enjoy!
