Some people in the USA like the July 4th holiday for barbecues. Some like it for the meaning behind Independence Day. And some like it for the fireworks. Me, I like any excuse to craft with my kids. And this Easy Paper July 4th Wreath Craft is a great craft to celebrate all the good about the day.
Not only is this a really easy craft that’s perfect for all ages, you simply cut a circle and glue red, white, and blue paper strips around it. But it’s also a great way to decorate your home for the occasion. Hang a bunch of these around your house in all different sizes, and you’re ready to celebrate!
Make a Paper Patriotic Wreath for July 4th
To make our Easy Paper Patriotic Wreath you will need cardstock in red, white, blue, and we used grey as our base. You will also need a star paper punch, scissors, and a glue stick.
Patriotic Paper Strip Wreath Craft Supplies Needed
- Cardstock – red, white, blue, and a base color
- Star paper punch
- Glue stick
Easy Paper July 4th Wreath Craft Step by Step Directions
Begin by choosing the size and color of the base of your wreath. This will mostly be covered up, but you don’t want to go with something wild like yellow. We chose a 6” sheet of grey cardstock, but your main red, white, or blue colors would work well, too.
Now, cut a circle out of the base. This doesn’t have to be a perfect circle.
Cut an inner circle out from the circle, leaving about a 1 inch wide ring.
Next, cut a bunch of red, white, and blue paper strips. They at least need to be long enough to cover the ring.
Begin gluing the strips all around the ring.
Continue gluing until the ring is filled.
Finally, make some stars with the star paper punch. Or, you can use stickers.
Affix the stars wherever you want around the wreath.
A simple and fun July 4th craft that everyone will love! These look so nice hanging up!
