Patriotic Wreath Project


If you are here from Pinterest and
would like a better tutorial for this wreath,
please CLICK HERE!
You can also find it in my etsy shop, HERE :)


This is one of my favorite things I've crafted in awhile- I love how these patriotic wreaths turned out! My friend Monica and I did them together (or rather, she completed hers while I got a little bit done in-between nursing and toddler refereeing)... so it blessedly goes around here!

A little midnight oil and we now have this adorable patriotic frosting on the front door! I have looked and looked to find where I first saw this idea and have finally decided I'm not wasting anymore time looking! I've seen this style around quite a lot and certainly didn't come up with it myself!


It's made using a foam wreath form and small squares of felt, pressed in to the foam with a skewer stick. We did have the idea to include some springy stars and they are a cute touch! Thanks Monica for a fun afternoon and fun project... click here to see her version and Happy Independence Day all!

  1. I love the way this looks, I saw it on pinterest. Do you mind telling me roughly the size of the felt squares you used? Very nice work!

  3. I saw this on pinterest and I want to try and make one. How big were the square pieces of felt, if you don't mind me asking...thanks :)

  4. Hope this is a semi-effective way to answer some questions... it's been a year now, so I'm just trying to remember. I believe we got something like 5 or 6 sheets of red and white felt and only 3 or so of the blue. I want to say each square was 2x2, may 2.5x2.5.

    One note: this did fall apart when a strong wind storm got ahold of it on my front door! I saved all the pieces and really wanted to re-do it on a stronger wreath form. The one I used was flat on the back. I'd recommend a totally rounded one instead to help keep it sturdy.

    We are in the middle of moving right now, but hopefully I get the chance to update this creation and re-post so I can be more helpful! :)

  7. So cute! Maybe putting a little hot glue on the felt tip before you poke it it will secure it longer? I think I might give it a try! :)

  8. If I may, I would suggest using S pins dipped in hot glue to attach the felt squares. The S pins can be found at any craft or floral supply store.

  9. Hi, I just wanted to let you know that I pinned your Patriotic wreath to my Wreath Inspiration board on Pinterest. To date it has been repinned almost FOUR THOUSAND times! YAY! Good for you! Keeping that in mind, I think you should do a pic tutorial on how you made it. Share the knowledge, then sell your second wreath or donate it to charity for sell. I think it would be a smashing sucess! Best of luck, congrats, and thanks for the inspiration!
