I hope this Thursday is treating you well. It has been an interesting day to say the least.
I don’t know about you but I’m so excited for this 4th of July weekend. I love long, summer nights that include s’mores and fireworks.
So here is an easy DIY that will help you and your home get into the 4th of July mood.
What you’ll need:
- Wreath (any size)
- Red, white, and blue tulle
- Star embellishments (or appliqués)
- Hot glue gun and glue
Step 1: Cut tulle into strips
I cut mine into 18 inch strips but you can cut them longer or shorter depending on the look you want.
Step 2: Fold tulle strip in half
Step 3: Place tulle strip under wreath
Step 4: Pull each end up and pull the 2 ‘open ends’ through the ‘loop’ part and pull tight
I wrapped my wreath in a white and red ribbon because I thought it looked boring but that step is totally optional.
Step 5: Continue steps 2-4 all the way around the wreath
I did the classic red, white, and blue pattern (with 5 strips each) but you can do whatever pattern you like.
Step 6: Glue the tulle ‘knots’ down
This step is completely optional but it gets windy here in Utah and I really didn’t want pieces of tulle flying down the street.
Step 7: Add embellishments
I used red, white, and blue stars but you can use whatever kind you like.
Step 8: Hang up and enjoy
I love the way this turned out. I think it looks like a firework (I love fireworks!) When I started making this I had a completely different idea in my head. But I’m glad I let my creativity take over and I love the end result.
Well I hope you enjoy and let your creativity flow.😁
