DIY 4th of July Fireworks WreathJune 26, 2014 | FILED UNDER: Wreaths, 4th of July
Light up your front door with this patriotic fireworks wreath just in time for the 4th of July! It takes minutes to make with a few supplies from the 4th of July aisle at your local craft store.
I love the scale of this wreath on our front door – it definitely catches your eye from the curb!
I found these pre-made paper pinwheels, popsicle sticks, and star stickers at Hobby Lobby making the wreath super easy to pull together.
Supplies for DIY Fourth of July Fireworks Wreath
- Foam wreath form (I used a curved one, but if you find a flat circle form those work even better!)
- Paper pinwheels
- Patriotic popsicle sticks
- Foam star stickers
- Hot glue
How to Make a Patriotic 4th of July Wreath
Step 1. Trim Paper Pinwheels
If desired, trim your pinwheels to make them smaller. I took a few folds at a time with my scissors and cut around the pinwheel to shorten the diameter. On a couple of them I also made little points by cutting out notches with my scissors as shown below. I then hot glued the ends of the pinwheel to stay together as a circle. If you are making your own pinwheels check out my easy tutorial!
Step 2. Glue on a cardboard tab to each pinwheel
I like to hot glue on a small piece of cardboard on the back of the pinwheel to give it a flat surface area to stick to the wreath.
Step 3: Make fireworks with craft sticks
I made a couple additional “fireworks” for the wreath using these printed craft sticks. To make them, I just criss-crossed them on top of each other and hot glued them together. Finish with a sticker on top.
Step 4: Glue Pinwheels and Fireworks to Wreath
Arrange your pinwheels and popsicle stick fireworks around the wreath form until you have a layout you like. Secure with a generous dab of hot glue and hang with a ribbon.
Even though the 4th of July is only a week away, you can make this wreath easily in under an hour and I say, keep it up on your door all of July! I added a little bucket of American flags from (only $1 for 3 at the Target Dollar Spot!).
