For this Patriotic Craft DIY, I used a mini wreath from the dollar store. Besides the wire wreath base, I used all things I had in my stash.
I often save lots of scraps and never find a place to use them. This patriotic wreath DIY helped me use those scraps and a few other cute crafty things.

How to Assemble Your Patriotic Wreath
I started by wrapping the wire wreath base with the white burlap ribbon. Some of it does show through but we’ll be covering it later. Any neutral material, ribbon, or fabric will work. I just started wrapping it around and around at an angle, while I pulled it tight.
At the end, I hot glued it but didn’t glue it to start (I wasn’t sure I was going to use it but it looked great and stayed without the extra glue so I just went with it.)
I cut the stars out of card stock in various sizes. I simply used the star shape in Design Space. I made the colors match the size so it wasn’t so busy. The silver stars I had on hand and they were from Joann’s.
It was pretty simple to assemble. I used my favorite glue gun to attach the stars. I laid them on the base in a general area. At first it was very boring and I thought I’d have to scrap this project.
When I create I love to add layers and dimensions. Adding stars on top of stars really made it look better. Also, using the foam adhesive added to the layers helped bring them together.
I use the foam to make some stars pop! To add some extra dimension I used 2 layers of foam. The adhesive wasn’t very sticky to use on fabric, so I used the glue gun to add them to the wreath. Here’s a pic of the 2 layers.
