I don’t know about you but whenever I see the color combination of red, white and blue I think of summer. The summer months of BBQs and holidays like Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day and Labor always come to mind for me when I see stars and stripes decor. Of course, all patriotic decor makes a great year-round decor which I think is especially true for the DIY Yarn Wreath that I have to share with you today.

How to Make DIY Yarn Wreath Red, White & Blue Patriotic Decor

Just follow the steps below and you’ll be able to make your own patriotic DIY Yarn Wreath! I like using a 12-inch straw wreath for this project and I prefer to leave my straw wreath wrapped in the plastic covering; however, you can remove the plastic before you begin if preferred. An alternative to the desired thickness of the straw wreath would be stacking two foam wreaths. (You can see where I did that here.)

YARN WREATH TUTORIAL:

START WITH NAVY.

Begin by using a dot of hot glue to secure the end of the navy yarn onto the wreath. This side will be considered the “back” of your wreath.

Allow the glue a minute to set then continually wrap the yarn around the wreath. Keep the yarn pulled tight as you wrap. After you reach the desired thickness for the navy section of your wreath secure the end of the yarn to the backside of the wreath with another dot of hot glue.

ALTERNATE RED AND WHITE STRIPES.

Next follow the same steps to cover the rest of the wreath in the desired thickness of red and white stripes. Alternate the red and white stripe sections until your DIY Yarn Wreath is completely covered in yarn.

ADD A HANGER AND STARS.

After your wreath is covered in red, white and blue attach either a piece of yarn to the backside of the wreath to serve as a hanger.

I braided two pieces of yarn in all three colors to create my hanger but a simple piece of yarn, ribbon or jute secured with hot glue will do the trick just fine. Finally, use hot glue to secure the white felt stars to the navy blue section of your patriotic wreath to emulate the look of the American flag.
