4th Of July Wreath Makeover

Can you believe we are coming to the end of June?
I don't know about you, but it seems like I was just pulling out my warm clothes for the winter
and now it's already summertime.


Speaking of winter,
remember this Christmas wreath I made out of wrapping paper?

Well, it's still in great shape so I decided to give it a little makeover for the 4th of July.
Click on the link below and it will tell you how to make your own wreath.

For the extra patriotic look I used a star paper punch.

Then I sewed the stars together on my sewing machine to create a star banner.

I used blue thread on the red just to make it more patriotic.

Tape the ends of the star banner on the back of the wreath.

That's it, you now have a delightful wreath for the 4th of July.


























The good ol' red, white and blue :)
Have a great day!

It's creative and very easy to make too. Who knew a wreath could be made out of wrapping papers; bookmarking the tutorial against December.

(Can't believe we are halfway through the year already. Here's grace to accomplish all we set out to do before the year runs out)

Cheers.

That is one pretty and unique wreath! I like the "patriotic flower" from the other post too.

I actually have that star cutout :)
The 4th of July is such a fun holiday..probably because it is in the summer and everybody is more relaxed. As vs. Memorial day which seems sadder.

That is so cute! You are so talented...how long does it take to remake a wreath?

I agree with time just blowing by. The fourth of July always was the signal for the middle of summer. NOOOOO!!

Peace in Christ,

You are so creative! I love those stars and how you attached them by sewing them together. Have a great weekend!

Leah Rose said...

You are so good at adding small touches that make a big impact, (like that shirt you recently added flowers to!)

Very nice, Stephanie!

Conniecrafter said...

great idea to update it that way for a patriotic feel!

This is great! So innovative. Also, another reason why I want to find a sewing machine at a garage sale this summer!!!! I don't need a fancy one. I don't sew. But, for this type of thing!! So So cute!

Cute! The fourth is always a huge affair at our home with dozens of guests. This year we are expecting the baby so we won't be hosting for the first time in 21 years!! It's strange not getting fully engrossed in the red, white and blue...

Blessings, Debbie
