Fourth of July Pinwheel Wreath- DIY

Hey everyone! I’m so excited to be sharing my latest craft concoction with you today on the blog just in time for the Fourth of July!

I don’t know about you all, but the Fourth of July is one of my absolute favorite holidays. Not only do I love celebrating our independence and freedom as a nation, but I love all of the traditions. Red, white, and blue everything, waving American flags, grilling out with family and friends, and of course who can forget the amazing fireworks?! I mean, it’s pretty much the perfect celebration.

So of course I love decorating for the 4th and showing off my patriotism, which is why today I’m sharing how to make this beautiful and easy Fourth of July Pinwheel Wreath. The pinwheels just scream summertime to me, and the beautiful red, white, and blue felt colors really pop with the rustic grapevine wreath.

Want to know how to make it? Let’s get started!
