Combine a wreath base and a paper fan to create this super cute 4th of July wreath!
Hi! I’m Lisa from My Joyful Spirit and I am so happy to share this easy 4th of July wreath that can be made in no time.
I love the idea of decorating with wreaths. I use them on the door, over my fireplace mantel and sometimes, even on the walls. They can provide instant holiday decor and are really simple to create. For this 4th of July wreath, I decided to use one of the paper fans that I found in my local Target discount section. That’s the section with all of the awesome stuff that ranges anywhere from $1 to around $5 that you see as you walk in the door.

I bought this kit at Target for $3 and decided to use the middle fan for my wreath. If you don’t have a Target close by, here is something similar.
Here’s what I used to make my 4th of July wreath:
- Styrofoam Beveled Wreath (mine is 11.8″)
- 1 spool of Patriotic ribbon (1.5 in x 4 yrs)
- Fan Kit (This one is similar.)
- Hot Glue Gun
Using a hot glue gun, glue one end of the ribbon to the styrofoam wreath. Wrap around the wreath until it is completely covered. Glue the other end to the styrofoam when finished.
All wrapped up!
Put one of the fans together by adhering the ends together.
This kit came with some stars, so I glued one star on top of the other and adhered them to the paper fan. If yours doesn’t, you can get some here.
Glue the paper fan to the wreath base. Tie some string to the top for hanging and that’s it! You have a beautiful paper fan 4th of July wreath!
