Create a patriotic Fourth of July Grapevine wreath with ribbon and small American flags! Display for Independence Day and also for Memorial Day.
Hello crafty friends! June has flown by and it is almost July! After realizing my outdoor wreath collection skips from Easter to Autumn, I decided it was time to create some summer wreaths starting with a patriotic fourth of July grapevine wreath. I had an extra grapevine wreath not being used so it was meant to be! This wreath can be hung up for more holidays than just Independence Day including Memorial Day. It’s really easy to create and is made mostly of wired ribbon you can find at your local craft store.
Fourth of July Grapevine Wreath
- Grapevine Wreath
- Burlap Patriotic Stripe Wired Ribbon
- Burlap Patriotic star ribbon
- Small American Flags
- Red Burlap Flower
- Hot Glue
- Needle and thread
Step One: First, wrap the red, white and blue striped ribbon around the grapevine wreath. You should be able to tuck both ends of the ribbon into the wreath so you can skip using glue.
Step Two: Next, create the rosette using the blue and white star ribbon. Cut two pieces of ribbon about 20″ long and one piece of ribbon about 21″. Fold the ends over about 1/2″. Bring the two folded ends of each piece to the center and stitch them together using a small running stitch and blue thread.
After you have sewn the ribbon into a loop, pinch the center and stitch creating a little bow.
Step Three: Sew all three of the bows together to create the rosette.
Add a flower to the center of the ribbon rosette. You can do this by hand sewing it on or use a hot glue gun.
Step Four: Finally, attach the ribbon rosette to the wreath using a hot glue gun. Add two miniature American flags behind the rosette and thew wreath is finished! Depending on how you plan to hang it, you may want to add a small ribbon loop to the top of the wreath.
I love how simple this wreath was to put together! It looks great on our door and looks especially pretty with our red flowers in the front yard :) I’ll be back later this week with a fun summer project tutorial. Have a great week and happy crafting!
