Patriotic Clothespin Wreath

Clothes pin patriotic wreath

This Independence Day, Jill Bauer, QVC’s Home-Savvy Hostess, has the perfect patriotic décor tips to help celebrate America in style and she’s allowed me to share her easy peasy tutorial with you all.  I don’t know about you but I can’t wait to make this craft!  I think it will be one that my little girl will like to help me out with!

To make this Red, White and Blue Patriotic Clothespin Wreath, you’ll need:

  • – 12” wire wreath
  • – Red, white, and blue spray paint
  • – Clothespins
  • – Cardstock
  • – Starpunch (I might use foam stars with my daughter)
  • – Hot glue gun

To assemble:

  1. Spray paint the wire wreath white to hide the metal frame.
  2. On old newspapers or a drop cloth, line up all of the clothespins. Spray paint them red, white, and blue. (I did an equal amount in each color.) Let them dry for 1 hour.
  3. Meanwhile, punch several stars out of the card stock. If you didn’t use white card stock, just spray paint the stars white and let them dry.
  4. Clip the clothespins onto the wire wreath, alternating them between the second and third rings. (I started with the red clothes pins, then did the white, and finished with the blue.)
  5. Hot glue the stars over the blue clothespins.

Fall Tulle Wreath

Fall Tulle Wreath

This lovely wreath was made quickly using tulle and a metal wreath frame.  Simply curl the tulle and tie small sections around the metal frame.  Repeat until you get the thickness you’d like.  This wreath was completed by tying a cheap “Welcome” sign to the front of the wreath.  Voila!  This inexpensive wreath is adorable and can be made while watching TV one evening.

Patriotic Wreath DIY

Patriotic Wreath

The combination of textures, patterns and patriotic color palette is perfection!  It i’s sure to give your guests a warm welcome.  The best thing about this patriotic wreath is that you can easily remove the additional decorations and keep your burlap base the same.

One wreath + endless seasonal decorations = less clutter and more cute!

The supplies needed to make this exact wreath above include strips of burlap (from any craft store, Walmart, or Amazon), a Styrofoam wreath form (available at same locations), red and blue piping (from Michael’s), paper stars (from Party City), floral pins, and a handy pair of scissors.

You can check out the basic burlap pinning technique here at Create Inspire.  Once the wreath is decorated in beautiful burlap the piping is woven in and out and pinned using floral pins.  The stars are also secured using pins.

Voila!!  That’s it!  This wreath can easily be done in twenty minutes and it will take even less time to change out the seasonal embellishments.
