Patriotic Decorations – Wreath


In just over 2 weeks it will be time to BBQ and watch fireworks for the 4th of July. For some reason the decorating part of my brain goes on vacation during the summer and I forget to put up decorations to for Independence Day. Well not this year! I got my act together and this week I have 4 great posts for 4th of July. For decorations, I have this easy wreath, and tomorrow will be DIY Patriotic Sand Candles. There will also be red, white and blue Jello Stars and Patriotic Ice Cream Sandwiches later in the week. Now I’m ready to rock for the 4th, how about you?

DIY #Patriotic Wreath - I made this #wreath in a few hours with a pool noodle, yarn and some foam stars. Easy peasy! Tested and reviewed by one of the 3 crazy sisters at: https://madefrompinterest.net

Supplies Needed:

  • 1 Pool Noodle $1.97
  • 3 Skeins Yarn Red, White, Blue $9
  • Felt Stars $1.99
  • Duct Tape: I already had some.

Total Cost $12.96

First, you need to tape the ends of your pool noodle together. Make sure you hold the two ends of the noodle snug against each other while taping. You can do this by yourself, but it is easier if one person holds the noodle ends together while another person tapes over them. If you don’t keep the ends together while taping, there will be a slight bulge in your wreath under the duct tape. Don’t worry too much about the duct tape being a little lumpy. Once you wrap your yarn over it, it will look fine.

I started by wrapping my blue yarn over the duct tape. I used my low temp glue gun to secure the end of the yarn. As long as the tip of my glue gun did not touch the pool noodle it worked fine. Once the tip of the glue gun touched the noodle and it melted slightly. If you don’t want to use a glue gun, another option that would work well is clear nail polish.

Here is a look at the back of my wreath where the blue yarn ends and the red yarn begins.Once my wreath was completely wrapped with yarn, I put on my glitter stars. I purchased the kind that are self adhesive and they worked just fine. It took about 2 1/2 – 3 hours to make my wreath. Or 5 1/2 to 6 episodes of Duck Dynasty. Yes I love their show, quack!

Just have to say that….This Pin Rocks!

  1. Tracy, this turned out soooo dang cute! I loved it. Very professional looking. Thanks for the cute craft idea!

    what is the size of the wreath? I’m thinking I may try a regular wreath. I did the pool noodle once, and i just kept bending it…

  3. I am the opposite of crafty but love this wreath enough to want to attempt to make it. Can you tell me the width of the red, white and blue stripes? Not sure how far to. Take them on the foam . Hope that makes sense. Thanks!

    • Hi Tracy,

      I am so sorry for the delay in my response to your questions about making this wreath. I would give you the exact measurements of each colored section but I gave my wreath away. The good thing about this wreath is that you do not need to worry about the spacing of the sections being perfect. I started my wreath by making the blue section first. I then alternated the red and cream sections. If you look closely at my wreath you will notice some sections are slightly wider than others. When you look at it as a whole you don’t notice the imperfections. Start with the blue yarn, make it the widest section, next alternate the red and cream sections. Don’t worry too much about it being perfect and it will turn out fine. Thanks for following us! Best, Tracy

    Great idea using a pool noodle! Most of the craft stores don’t have big styro wreaths. LOVE the one you have made up. Soooo simple too. You could even take a bout pin and pin the stars in place just to make sure any dampness would not cause them to drop off.

  5. Thanks so much for featuring us today! Happy 4th of July!
