My sister and I made this 4th of July patriotic wreath in under an hour. We made it for the 4th of July but you could certainly use it Memorial Day, or Labor Day too. I love showing my patriotism for our great nation.
-12 in wreath frame
– 2 packs of clothespins (This wreath takes 60 clothespins to make but there are only packs of 50 at Walmart which are $1 each.)
– wooden stars (you can order these from Amazon or buy them at Hobby Lobby)
– red, white and blue spray paint
Start by dividing out your 60 clothespins. For mine I painted 15 blue, 22 white and 23 red. Next step is to paint them. I spray painted them, you could use acrylic paint and a paint brush if you would like. I will tell you it takes a while for the clothes pins to dry so be patient. Next Stagger them on the wreath frame doing all the blue clothespins together then 4 reds followed by 4 whites. Lastly, attach the wooden stars to the blue clothespins and hang!
This is a fun project to do with the kids and get them involved in all the patriotic festivities.
