I like to switch out the wreathes on the front door every month or so. Usually, I decorate for each holiday so that is pretty easy to do. However, there are times like now that have holidays I don’t really decorate for. I mean I like the Fourth of July but all that red, white, and blue drives me crazy.
I wanted to make a wreath that could be used for the Fourth of July but not one that was all red, white, and blue with stars and stripes everywhere. While shopping I found these bows that reminded me of fireworks. When I showed the bows to the girls they said pretty much the same thing. So I decided to make a Faux Fireworks Wreath.
Faux Fireworks Wreath
- Wooden wreath form
- Wooden welcome sign
- Gift bows
- Craft paint
- 2 Paint brushes
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Paint the front and sides of your wooden wreath form in the color of your choosing.
- While the wreath is drying, paint your welcome sign.
- Allow the wreath form and welcome sign to dry completely.
- After they have dried, plug in the hot glue gun.
- Position the welcome sign on the wreath form.
- Apply hot glue to the back of the welcome sign and attach it to the wooden wreath.
- Create a hanger using the star ribbon and hot glue it into place on the back top of the wreath.
- Apply hot glue to the back of a gift bow and attach it to the wreath.
- Repeat with remaining gift bows.
- Allow the entire wreath to dry completely before hanging it up.
The wooden wreath form I got at Jo-Ann’s along with the wooden welcome sign and the star ribbon. I picked up the gift bows that reminded me of fireworks at the Dollar General. I made a custom grey color for the wreath by mixing dark grey, sparkly sliver, and a drop of black and white together. Originally, I was going to paint the welcome sign a solid red color but I didn’t like the way it came out so I switched to the red, white, and blue pattern.
I love how this Faux Fireworks wreath turned out!
Have a great day!
