Bonus Tutorial: How to make a Fourth of July Wreath (Easy!)

This post may contain affiliate links or sponsored content, read our Disclosure Policy.

This project uses items from my Fourth of July Printable collection.  I love this 4th of July wreath tutorial.  It comes with these free printable pinwheels to really make it pop!  Great DIY idea for summer.Be sure to check out all of the collection for more fun patriotic decor ideas.  For Fun I decided to try taking my pinwheels from my 1776 collection and put them on a vine wreath.  If was fun, fast and looks great.

You will need:

pdf print outs of the large pinwheels from the 1776 Collection

pdf print out of the small pinwheels from the 1776 collection

3.5 inch round  punch

2 inch round punch

hot glue gun

vine wreath

Here’s how to make the wreath:

1. Make several large and small pinwheels (you can learn how from my video tutorials  here and here) Tip:  to make my pinwheels double sided I glued two printouts together(white sides together) and then cut the diagonal lines and made the pinwheel.

2. Once all your pinwheels are made take your wreath and play with the placement of them.

3.  Once you are satisfied with the Placement, glue down the pinwheels.  for the small pinwheels sitting on top of the larger I glued a pipe cleaner to the back side of the small pin wheel and then glued the other end of the pope cleaner to the wreath to give it a more 3D effect.

4. Place on your door and show off your patriotism.


BTW – did you grab your free iron on printable that matches the 1776 collection?  It looks really good on an apron – great for cook outs!  You can grab that here.
