Patriotic Felt Squares Wreath

There are so many fun ways to decorate for July 4th. Wreaths are my go to decor items and this is a really easy one to make. The end result lets you show off your American pride. It doesn’t get much easier than pinning felt squares to a foam wreath!
Begin with a floral foam wreath, felt fabric, straight pins, and a small bit of ribbon. I chose stars and a circle with jingle bells for embellishments. You’ll also need some hot glue. What project doesn’t need hot glue?

Step One: Cut felt fabric into 4″ squares. To make this wreath, I used 120 red squares, 80 blue squares and 80 white squares.

Step Two: Fold a square into a triangle.
Step Three: Fold again into a second triangle by folding one side over the other.

Step Four:Pinch the point together and insert a straight pin into the felt.
Step Five:Pin the square into the wreath.
Decide how large you want each section to be and begin alternating colors. Make sure to place each square tightly against the previous one. This will give you a nice, full and fluffy wreath. I placed squares over the top and inside and outside of the wreath.
Step Six: Add embellishments.

I added stars that I found for $1.99 for a package of six at Michaels. They were on a stick, so I just removed the stick and hot glued them onto the felt.
I found the circle with jingles at Dollar Tree. I gave the letters a quick white paint job and glued them on.
Step Seven: Add a ribbon for hanging.

The looped red ribbon is hot glued to the back for hanging. Of course, there are lots of different ways to embellish. It just needs something to make it pop.
This is such an easy wreath to put together. It took me a little over two hours from start to finish and it's a great way to show off your Red, White and Blue for the 4th of July. To see more, please click the link below.
