I love celebrating all the holidays throughout the year. Everything from doing crafts, decorating and enjoying special foods makes the holidays fun. This year as a fun way to get ready for the 4th of July I made this DIY 4th of July Star Wreath.
Last year I shared how to make a star door hanger using popsicle sticks and it was so popular I decided to use those same stars to make a wreath.
This 4th of July star wreath is really easy to make and it’s cheap you can get all the supplies you need at the dollar store.
This craft is perfect to make as a DIY decoration or as a fun kids craft.
Supplies for the 4th of July Star Wreath
- 45 Popsicle Sticks – These are really cheap to get in bulk
- Red, White, and Blue Paint – I used the Apple Barrel Acrylic paint
- Twine – I got this at the Dollar Store
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue – Or super glue – or other glue
Making the Wreath
The first step to make this patriotic wreath is making the stars. You need 5 popsicle sticks for each star.
Paint 15 sticks in each color (red, white, and blue) and let them dry. That’s enough sticks for 3 stars in each color.
Using glue attach the 5 sticks together in a star shape by overlapping the ends with glue and making it into a star.
Once you have 9 stars have fun arranging them to form a wreath. I recommend laying out the wreath and making sure the stars overlap and it looks they way you wan it to before you start gluing the stars to each other.
Use the glue to attach the stars to each other to form a somewhat circular wreath shape.
Optional: Make a loop of twine at the top of the wreath to easily hang the wreath from.
This popsicle stick star wreath is a fun and simple way to decorate your front door or any door in your house. We have ours hanging on our pantry.
