Well friends, the Fourth of July decorating has begun over here. The 4th has always been one of my favorite holidays to decorate However, this year I cannot find my 4th decor anywhere… SO I’m starting from scratch. I don’t want to spend any money right now, so I’ll be re-purposing things I already have around my home. First up is this cute $1 scrap wreath!
Remember this old window from my junk yard finds? Well I’ve been trying to find a spot for it and I think I finally found it’s new home. I thought it would be cute to put a wreath in the middle of the window. I made a square wreath for Halloweeen and thought the square/rectangle wreath would look great in this vintage window. So here’s how I made my $1 scrap wreath. :)
Fourth of July decorating
1. First, I cut my rectangle from a white foam board I picked up from the dollar store. I used a ruler to make my measurements and then cut the board with my XACTO knife. 18 x 14 x 3in
2. Then I found a bunch of scrap fabric I had laying around and cut about 20 strips 15×2 in.
3. I tied the strips in a knot around my wreath. I did about 3-5 knots and then added a piece of white fabric.
4. For the white fabric (6x8in) I bunched it together and then hot glued the ends to the back of the wreath.
I continued this pattern all the way around. Don’t worry about making it look perfect… I think the raw edges give it a fun look.
I added a star I had laying around to the center and hung it up with some white rope (found at Hobby Lobby).
So there you have a simple and cute wreath you can make for around a buck! Gather some scrap fabric and you’ll have a fun piece of decor in no time. Come back tomorrow to see my finished Fourth of July “mantel.” Have a great day! :)
