4th of July Yarn Wreath

Next week is the 4th of July. I don’t have a lot of 4th of July decor, besides a couple of flags, so I wanted to make something nice for our front door. I decided to make a wreath. So I browsed Pinterest until I found a few wreaths to use as my inspiration. My wreath was inspired by two specefic wreaths, one posted by The Cellar Door Stories and the other posted by Landee See Landee Do.  This took a little while to do, mostly because it took so long to wrap the yarn around the wreath base. I think it turned out pretty good and what’s great is that it can be used for other patriotic holidays such as Veterans Day and Memorial Day.


What you will need:

1 wreath base (I used foam)
Red, white and blue yarn
Card stock (4th of July style or colors)
Hot glue gun


1.  Wrap the yarn around the wreath base, alternating colors.
2.  Make the card stock flowers. Here is a tutorial on how to make them.
3.  Affix the flowers to the wreath with hot glue.
4.  Hang on your front door, securing to a wreath holder with ribbon or yarn.

  1. I think I might be able to pull this one off! It looks fabulous. I have yet to hang a wreath on my door for any occasion other than Christmas…lol. I think about it…it just never happens. ;)

  2. Thank you, Sherry! Same here. I only ever hang a Christmas wreath on my door. I enjoyed making this wreath so I think I'll make more in the future. :)

  3. I really like this wreath Julie. I too don't have any July 4th decorations. I really like the card stock flowers. It's definitely something I want to craft. :)

  4. Thank you, Jess! :)

  5. Wow, it looks great!!

  6. Thank you, Kathie!

  7. I've been seeing more and more of these wrapped yarn wreaths and definitely think I might attempt one soon. Great job, it looks wonderful!

  8. Thank you! They take a while to do but they look great! I got the idea off of Pinterest. I think I may make some for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. :)


  9. Great wreath! I love the flowers! Thanks for linking up with me for Friday Favorites. I'm featuring you this week. Come by and grab my featured button if you'd like one.

  10. Julie Ann, this is such a fun & clever wreath. I totally need more FOJ decor, too. Maybe if I start now, I'll make some stuff by next year! Thanks bunches for linking up at Mop It Up Mondays last week. I'm featuring this at tomorrow night's party! Hope you can stop by.


  11. Julie, this is super cute and what a great way to use up extra yarn piling up in my closet!! I do think I will seal the paper flowers with decoupage. It's really humid where I live – they wouldn't make it a day around here but I have found decoupage to be my best friend for things I want to display outside!!

  12. Very cute! The card stock flowers are a unique twist. Great job.

  13. Thank you, Stephanie! :)
