Cristina Crafts DIY 4th of July Wreaths!

Things You'll Need:

  • Hot glue gun
  • Foam wreath body
  • Different colors of string (red, white, navy blue)
  • White cardboard or heavy construction paper
  • Sharpie
  • Scissors


  1. Go to your local Michael's or craft store to buy all these materials.
  2. Depending on how nice of materials you want to use, this project may cost between $5 and $10.
  3. On your foam wreath body, take your Sharpie or marker and mark off the sections of the wreath that will be each color.
  4. The blue string should generally take a quarter of the wreath and the red and white should evenly take up the rest.
  5. Now, it's just a matter of wrapping, but start with the blue.
  6. Hot glue the end of the navy blue to the back of the wreath, then start liberally wrapping the rest of the area.
  7. The string should be tightly wrapped together and glued every couple of rows.
  8. Repeat for the red and white string.
  9. Cut out your stars from the white cardboard or heavy construction paper.
  10. They can all be the same size or feel free to stagger the sizes (large, medium, small).
  11. The last step is to glue a piece of string on the back to hang the wreath from.
