The 4th of July brings to mind for me a time gone by; Parades, picnics, and ice cream cones, cookouts with hot dogs, cheeseburgers and corn on the cob, banners on every door and the flag flying high and of course, fireworks! It's America at it's best!

RELATED: How to Make Your Front Porch a Showstopper this July 4th

With the Independence Day quickly approaching, it is time to get into the holiday and patriotic spirit! What better way than dressing up your front door in a Patriotic Wreath with red, white and blue decorations!? This wreath, with tea-stained fabric, lends a touch of vintage Americana style and the grapevine wreath base along with the raffia embellishments, both provide a rustic feel. It's the perfect addition to your front porch.

How to Make a Patriotic Wreath with Red, White and Blue Decorations

You'll need:

1 oval grapevine wreath form
1 yard of patriotic-themed cotton fabric
3-fat quarters of coordinating fabrics
Push pins
Glue and Glue Gun
Stitch Witchery
Pipe Cleaners
Raffia strands
White, red, and blue 8"x8" square cardstock
Star Pattern
Black craft paint and paintbrush
Needle and Thread

To make it:


1. Hem all raw edges of the fabric by either pressing and sewing a 1/2" hem or using stitch-witchery.2. To begin the swag, create small pleats on one short end of the fabric, pinning as you go.3. Stitch, or glue folds into place.
4. Attach to the bottom left of the wreath form using glue.

5. Stretch the other end of the fabric across the wreath and gather together. Secure the pleats to the wreath form in the top right corner using a coordinating color pipe cleaner.

6. Take the bottom right corner of the remaining fabric and tuck, securing with glue under the gather, creating a swag.

7. Follow the instructions below to create the felt flower.

8. Apply the flower directly on the swag at the attachment point on the top right, thereby hiding the attachment.
9. Add the raffia, by wrapping around and under the flower and glue to secure.
10. Follow the instructions below to create the stars.
11. Glue the stars to the wreath.



1. Print out the flower template and cut out the pattern pieces.

2. Using the large petal pattern, pin and cut two pieces from a fat quarter. Repeat with each petal pattern piece, changing the fat quarter fabric for each pattern piece size.
3. Starting with the large petal piece, pinch each of the heart-shaped petals together at the base and sew through the pinch from behind, taking about three or four stitches to secure
4. Repeat on each of the remaining two petals and tie off.
5. Stack petals in a staggered pattern, largest to smallest, and secure with thread.


1. Print off and cut out the star patterns.
2. On heavy card stock, trace and cut out the three stars, one in each color - red, white, and blue.
3. On each of the three stars, gently score from tips to center as shown on the pattern.
Gently push and fold on the scoreline for each star, forming a slight ridge from each point to the center.

4. To "age" the stars, brush very lightly in black along the scoreline of each star. Let dry.

5. Paint the stars in red, white and blue.

6. To complete, apply a clear coat for protection.

7. Hang - and enjoy your holiday! Happy 4th of July!
