Any of these wreath ideas for 4th of July will bring out the patriotic spirit in you. Make one for your front door!
The 4th of July is coming up soon, hence, it’s time to bring out all things red, white, and blue!
One common way of displaying your American pride is hanging a patriotic wreath on your front door.
A wreath is a decorative ring that is typically placed on the front door to welcome guests (you might find some people hanging wreaths on their windows too).
Because it is on your front door, you should put some thought on the wreath that you choose to display to the neighborhood. It is also best if you choose an impressive wreath as it is the first thing your guests will see when they come over for your 4th of July party.
To help you out, we have gathered 20 patriotic wreaths for 4th of July that you can easily make for your home.
Here we go!
1. Star wreath
If you want a wreath that stands out, make one with stars! Use red, white and blue cardstock for the stars.
Yup! Those stars are made out of paper! It does not look like it at first glance! They have folded it in a certain way to create that 3D look.
If you want it to look rustic or old, get a distressed ink and apply it on the folded pleats to pull off the rustic look!
2. Clothespin wreath
Wooden clothespins can give you a totally unique wreath!
Simply paint the clothespins red, white, and blue. Add some stars on the blue part of the wreath and you have a wreath that instantly reminds you of the American flag!
3. Glitter stars wreath
Want something sparkly that people can see from across the street? This wreath will grab everyone’s attention with its glitter stars.
Decorate an ordinary willow wreath with red, white, and blue glitter stars. Top it off with an equally sparkly ribbon and you are good to go!
4. Tinsel wreath
If you want something sparkly but you do not want to deal with the mess that glitters can cause, try a tinsel wreath!
Here’s one that repurposes an old pool noodle. Hand paint the American flag and use popsicle sticks.

Does your home have a farmhouse or rustic theme? Make this Farmhouse American flag wreath!
Use a grapevine. Then adorn it with American flags, cotton stems, red berry cluster stems, and a red gingham ribbon! It sure looks like a warm, welcoming wreath that will impress your guests!
6. Patriotic rag wreath
Do you have red, white, and blue scrap fabrics in your craft room? You can use them to make a patriotic rag wreath like this one!
Although it is best to use plain colors, you can also make do with ones that have prints on them as long as the dominant color is clear. It’s a great way to repurpose some old clothes too!
The trick is to use a fabric that is stiff so that the ends will not flop over.
7. Floral wreath
This wreath gives out a sweet, cottage chic vibe. It definitely calls out to an old soul.

Add stars to the blue flowers and you easily get reminded of the American flag!

9. Paper rosette wreath

18. Patriotic pop can wreath
Recycling is good for the environment and this is a great DIY wreath that lets you recycle soda cans.
Collect soda cans that come in red, white, and blue, and some yellow for the stars. Cut these cans into star shapes to create this totally unique patriotic wreath! Hang it in a way that kids won’t be able to reach it because the edges can be sharp.
19. Necktie wreath
Do you have lots of old ties in the house? Repurpose them by creating this necktie wreath!
Choose ties that are dominantly red, white, and blue and wrap them around the wreath! It is very simple. And it gives a new purpose to an old set of ties that barely gets used!
