Patriotic Door Wreath

So, this Memorial Day wreath could easily be used for any patriotic holiday include July 4th or even Labor Day. Or, you can show off your American pride all year long by keeping it on the front door throughout the summer.

There are lots of different Memorial Day wreath ideas out there. But, I wanted to try to keep the expense down and some of the ideas I’ve seen are rather expensive.

When it comes to patriotic door decor, wreaths are the most common DIY project. This one is very easy to make and a lot less costly than the ones you’d find at Pier One or even Walmart.

Can I keep this on an outside door?

This wreath is really intended to be displayed somewhere that is protected from the weather. Rain and wind will probably damage it. It’s best to place this on a door that is protected by a storm door or even on a porch or apartment door.

Variations on a patriotic door wreath

As I mentioned, you can easily change up what you put on this wreath. I wanted a patriotic door wreath that was able to be used for different holidays or even all year round.

But, if you want a DIY patriotic eagle wreath, you can add an eagle to the front. This one would work well.

How to make a red, white, and blue wreath

So, here are the directions to make a patriotic door wreath:

  • Start by applying 2 coats of metallic gold paint to the wooden stars.
  • Allow for enough time to dry in between.
  • Using the wire cutters, trim the stems of all of the flowers leaving about 3-4 inches.
  • Start by adding the red, white, and blue daisies to both sides of the grapevine wreath.
  • You could hot glue the flowers into the wreath. Or, just weave them in between the grapevines.
  • For the carnation flowers, pop the flower off of the stem so you can hot glue these onto the wreath.
  • When applying add some hot glue to the bottom of the flower near where the stem is and then place it on the grapevine wreath.
  • Start with the red and blue flowers and then add the white flowers around it.
  • Next using hot glue, add it to the ends of the stars and apply it to the grapevine wreath.
  • Hang up and enjoy!
