Happy Sunday, all. I’ve been trying hard this weekend to get my front porch “made over” since we don’t tend to devote as much time to up-keeping the outdoors as we do the indoors. While I’m still in the midst of making over the porch, I did make a 4th of July wreath for the front door that I wanted to share with you guys! It’s something kind of different in the way of 4th of July wreathes, so I hope you like it!
Here’s what I used to make it:
Straw Wreath Form
Red and White Felt
Navy blue fabric stenciled with yellow stars
Gingham fabric for flowers
I wrapped small sheets of moss around my wreath and stapled them down with my staple gun. It’s a messy process.
I then stenciled my navy blue fabric with Martha Stewart yellow paint and one of her stencils.
From there, I stapled the blue fabric onto the wreath and cut out two thick strips of red and white felt and stapled them on either sides of the navy blue fabric. I wanted to adorn the wreath a bit more, so I used some red and blue gingham and made little flowers with them. I also took some of that same fabric and made a little rag tie garland to hang from the sides of the wreath.
Overall, it didn’t take me too long to make this, but I really like how it turned out and think it’s got a nice vintage fourth of July look to it. AND I love how it looks on my new Wythe Blue front door!! I have more to come on that! Lots more work to do!
ENJOY YOUR SUNDAY!
