4th of July Wreath

4th of July Wreath

Light up your front door with this patriotic fireworks wreath just in time for the 4th of July! It takes minutes to make with a few supplies from the 4th of July aisle at your local craft store.

I love the scale of this wreath on our front door - it definitely catches your eye from the curb!

I found these pre-made paper pinwheels, popsicle sticks, and star stickers at Hobby Lobby making the wreath super easy to pull together.

Supplies for 4th of July Wreath


  • Foam wreath form (I used a curved one, but if you find a flat circle form those work even better!)
  • Paper pinwheels (I found pre-made ones at Hobby Lobby, but you can make your own using my easy tutorial and some red,white, and blue paper)
  • Patriotic popsicle sticks
  • Foam star stickers
  • Hot glue
  • Scissors

How to Make 4th of July Wreath


1. If desired, trim your pinwheels to make them smaller. I took a few folds at a time with my scissors and cut around the pinwheel to shorten the diameter. On a couple of them I also made little points by cutting out notches with my scissors as shown below. I then hot glued the ends of the pinwheel to stay together as a circle.

2. I like to hot glue on a small piece of cardboard on the back of the pinwheel to give it a flat surface area to stick to the wreath.

3. I made a couple additional "fireworks" for the wreath using these printed popsicle sticks. I criss-crossed them on top of each other and hot glued them together. I finished with a sticker on top.

4. Arrange your pinwheels and popsicle stick fireworks around the wreath form until you have a layout you like. Secure with a generous dab of hot glue and hang with a ribbon.

Even though the 4th of July is only a week away, you can make this wreath easily in under an hour and I say, keep it up on your door all of July!

I added a little bucket of American flags from (only $1 for 3 at the Target Dollar Spot!).
