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!
Fourth of July Pinwheel Wreath
- 1 Large Grapevine Wreath Form
- 3 Felt Sheets in Red, Navy Blue, and White
- Red Twine
- Miniature Clothespin
- Stars & Stripe Ribbon
- Hot Glue Gun with Glue
Begin by cutting out 4, 3×3 squares in both Navy Blue and White using this template.
Stack one blue square on top of a white square and trim to size as needed.
Starting with a stack of squares, carefully cut slits inwards from each corner, without going all of the way.
Begin bringing every other corner to the center, hot gluing as you go.
Below is what it will look like completed.
Lastly, glue a small red circle to the center of the pinwheel.
Repeat process for remaining pinwheels. For variation, I did two with the white side facing up, and two with the navy side facing up.
Next, hot glue the pinwheels onto the grapevine wreath.
Cut out three stars (2 red, 1 white) using this template, and hang by twine with miniature clothespin. I secured the twine on the wreath by tying it at an angle towards the back part of the wreath.
Hang wreath on door with ribbon and enjoy your beautiful, patriotic Fourth of July wreath!
