Fourth of July Wreath

Surprise, surprise–The Fourth of July is just around the corner! Have you started decorating yet? Not to worry if not. We have just the thing. Introducing our Fourth of July star wreath! Remember how we’ve been obsessed with accordion wreaths this year? It started with this Valentine’s wreath, then this variation for St. Patrick’s Day. Oh, and I think our Palm Leaf Wreath also fits into the accordion category. Now we thought it fitting to transform all the accordions into a festive wreath to celebrate the Fourth. Follow along to see how to make one!

You'll Need:

Custom Gradient Accordion Stars

I’m in love with the accordion stars on this Fourth of July Wreath! They manage to look delicate, lovely, and festive all at the same time. Don’t get me wrong, the traditional red white and blue of the Fourth of July are nice. But I love the way the gradient softens the colors into cotton candy hues of pinks, reds and blues. Oh, and I’m also in love with how simple this wreath is to make!

Here’s how to do it:

How to Make a Fourth of July Wreath

Constructing the Stars

  1. First, download, print and cut out the accordion gradient templates found here
  2. Next, fold each strip back and forth to make the accordion folds. Make each fold roughly ¼ inch thick.
  3. Now, connect the two ends of the accordion strip so you have one continuous circle.
  4. Next, flatten the circle out like a fan, points facing out to make the stars.
  5. Now, bring the center of the star together nice and tight and secure with hot glue. For extra security, glue a paper circle onto the back of the star’s center.

Assembling the Wreath

  1. For the wreath form, cut a piece of wire that’s a little bigger than you’d like your wreath to be. Then wrap the excess around itself to secure.
  2. Next, hot glue the stars onto the wreath form until it’s as full as you’d like.
  3. Now, add the silver strips wherever you’d like for extra fullness.
  4. Done!
