Easy Patriotic Wreath

Even though July 4 is still several weeks away, I can’t resist decorating early for this important holiday.  Our front door has a new wreath for Independence Day, an Easy Patriotic Wreath that I crafted from fleece.

Red, white, and blue wreath made with fleece strips.

Easy Patriotic Wreath

I love to decorate our house patriotically for Memorial Day, Flag Day, July 4, and Labor Day.

I used a wire wreath form and strips of fleece to make a patriotic wreath for our door.

I inherited all of my mother-in-law’s material including this fleece.

I love how colorful this looks on our front door.

Our Patriotic Front Porch

Along with the patriotic wreath on our front door, our pots are planted with red and white flowers, and I add flags to the pots.

    1. Thanks, Christy! I actually made it over the winter while I watched tv on a snow day. I have so much enjoyed having it on my door and will be sad to take it down after July 4th.
