4 Easy Wreath Designs to Invite the Patriotic Spirit into Your Home

•  patriotic decoration •  Wreaths

Whether you are going to host a Veterans Day party, or you just have another plan, doing an Americana-inspired upgrade to your home décor is still a perfect way to mark the importance of this holiday. Whenever your front door, mantelpiece, or a headboard of your bed looks a bit “naked”, you can fix things up by creating one of these 20-minute DIY wreaths.

Poppy Wreath

Since the poppy is the symbol of Veterans Day, incorporating it into your wreath is a wise idea, especially if you are not completely head over heels for the red, white, and blue theme. To bring this project to life, you’ll need a 12’’ hard foam wreath, sheets of red, green, and black burlap for the poppies, and a template for the leaves. First up, cut out 80-90 red fabric flowers and 80-90 fabric flower centers. Then, to attach the flowers to the wreath, place a dab of glue in the middle of each red flower’s backside and randomly place them to the wreath, holding each one for a few seconds. Once you are done with all the flowers, do the same with the black flower centers. Cut out 8-14 green leaves and tuck them in and around the red poppies.

Polka Dot Americana Wreath

If you are looking to decorate your door or mantelpiece with something less fluffy, make no mistake –this easy project  will inspire you to drop everything and rush to TableclothsFactory for the needed materials. But while you are here, please keep in mind that you’ll need a 12’’ foam wreath form, grosgrain polka dotted ribbon, a bundle of red, white, and blue silk chrysanthemums, a red tulle roll, and a hot glue gun.

Wrap the wreath form with the polka dotted grosgrain ribbon, placing dabs of glue as you go. In the lower right corner, tie the piece of tulle, making a bow with long ends. Then, separate your flowers from the stems, and glue each one to the center of the bow. In the end, use another length of tulle to make a hanger.

Fabric Scraps Wreath

Got a stack of leftover pieces of red, white, and blue fabric? Instead of sending them to the dustbin, make them a part of something grandeur – something like this ruffled patriotic wreath. To begin with, cut your fabric sheets into squares of 2’’x2’’. Take the first square, fold it in half, and then, in half again (you’ll get a triangle). Using a straight pin, attach it to the foam wreath form. Do the same with a few more squares, pinning them down very close to each other to mimic a bloom, and then, open your “flower” up. Repeat these actions until the entire form is covered. In the end, attach our silver star shaped confetti.

Ombre Wreath

If you have a pile of leftover ribbons, don’t wave them “goodbye” – for example this fabulous ombre wreath is a perfect wat to give them a second life. To recreate this ombre effect, first up, stock up on our eggplant, purple, burgundy, red, fuchsia, navy blue, royal blue, serenity blue, light blue, white, and ivory thin trims from our online store, and don’t forget about an embroidery hoop. After that, transform your ribbons into 4-5-inch scraps and by making simple knots, cover the entire hoop – beginning from ivory and ending with navy blue. It’s recommended to scrunch your knots as close as you can and make them thinner by cutting them lengthwise.
