July 4th Wreath – Patriotic Update to a Burlap Bubble Wreath

Hello friends, I’m going to share a quick, and I mean quick, update you can make to get this patriotic July 4th Wreath from a basic bubble wreath.

A shoestring hangs the July 4th Wreath from the door for 4th of July.

I made a seasonal wreath last year.  After I first shared the seasonal wreath I updated it as an Easter Bunny wreath.  And now I’ll show you how easy it is to make a July 4th Wreath.

I don’t have a lot of storage space, which is why I created a Seasonal Wreath that I could easily update for the current season when the mood strikes me.  This has worked out very well for me so far.  And since I’m making the decorations temporary there is no need for a glue gun.  So the process goes pretty quickly.

July 4th Wreath – Supplies

First deconstruct the Easter Wreath and save the parts to use later.

Make a July 4th Wreath from a deconstructed bubble wreath.

Cut carnations from the stems using a wire cutter.  Leave about 6 ” of stem on each one.  You can cut excess later if needed.

Gather a red, a white, and a blue carnation and twist the stems together a bit.

Determine where you want your flowers then poke around a bit until you find an opening like below.  Then insert your stems.

Turn the wreath over and bend the flower stems and tuck them into the underside of the wreath or under a support wire.

Keep working in groups of three until you have the flowers in an arrangement that looks perfect for your July 4th Wreath.

You are so clever to use the same frame and change out the seasonal decor. I love the red, white, and blue flowers as 4th focal points! I'll stop by and pick up the items to get this wreath going. I'll also put you on speed dial just in case I get into trouble. LOL... Hugs---Susie from The Chelsea Project ....Stumbling!!!

You're smart to make a neutral wreath and then embellish as needed. Love this one for the 4th. We're always on vacation over the 4th of July so I rarely decorate for it:( Love seeing yours, though! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm! xo Kathleen|Our Hopeful Home

I can't take credit for the idea but it is pretty smart, and thank you, those Dollar Store flowers really jazz it up. I also don't do much decorating inside for the 4th, usually only on the patio if we're having guests over. But I've made a few things this year so maybe I'll get more serious about it in the coming years.

Your patriotic wreath is fabulous! I love the pops of color with the neutral color. Updating a wreath seasonally is such a great idea. Thanks for sharing at Celebrate the USA Party. Pinning.

Thank you Beverly, it's not my idea originally but I'm sure glad I learned about it. Such a space saver, now I need to plan my wreath updates for Summer, Halloween and Fall.

Perfect idea not using a glue gun as you can use the basic wreath anytime during the year. Very beautiful wreath for July 4th

Thank you Christina, my last update at Easter I used wire to hold a few parts in place. You have to get creative but it makes updating it later so much easier.
