The Fourth of July is just around the corner and my family is ready.  We enjoy a low-key celebration with family and friends, complete with a parade, good food and fireworks of course.  I decorate my front porch with flags every year and like to add a few red white and blue items inside too.  This year I was inspired to create by a pack of patriotic napkins I found at Dollar Tree.  I used these napkins to create pretty patriotic paper flowers for a wreath.  I have all the details below along with more red white and blue projects from some very talented bloggers.

Most of my supplies are from Dollar Tree,  I love their selection and always find what I need when I shop there.  I used these simple supplies to create a small wreath for my eating area.  A few red white and blue items around my house give it a patriotic feel perfect for summer.  

Supplies:

  • Foam wreath form
  • Burlap
  • Paper napkins
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue
  • White tissue paper
  • Wood pick or toothpick

I started by wrapping the wreath form in burlap and securing it with hot glue.  Then set that aside and started assembling the flowers.  

To make these patriotic paper flowers, I cut petals in 2 sizes from the napkins. I used about 12 petals for each flower.

To make the center of the flower I folded a piece of white tissue paper into a rectangle so there were 4 layers and cut fringe along one long edge.

Once the fringe was cut, I rolled the tissue paper around a pick and secured it with hot glue to create the center of the flower.

 To build the flower, I attached petals to the center with hot glue and worked my way around until the flower looked full.

Then I stuck the pick into the foam wreath. I repeated this process with red and blue napkins to create a cluster of patriotic paper flowers on my burlap wreath.

This red white and blue patriotic wreath is a nice, portable, addition to my summer decor.  It can be moved outside for a party, or hung above a buffet table.  I also like that I can easily remove the flowers and repurpose this basic burlap wreath for another season.

Now take a look at these inspiring red white and blue Dollar Store projects, I hope they inspire you to create this week.
