fourth of july wreath

I love having a cute wreath on my door for every season and holiday.  Call it Decorater ADD, I like to change things up frequently.

I found a big wooden star for 99 cents at goodwill a while back, knowing I wanted to use it for my Independence Day wreath.  I added the lettering, a clearance after the holiday find several years ago. Then, a little hot glue on the back of a taget star and I was done.

But....it still looked too plain, so I added the red forsythia wreath behind it and tied it altogether with a patriotic bow.  Now, I like it!  And less than $10 altogether.  Can't beat that!

Doesn't my front door look like a giant hershey bar? ;)

Are you a wreath person, or is your front door empty, 
and you like it that way?

    1. Thanks Therena! Whenever I make a wreath it takes me a couple of tries to get it right. Maybe I just need more practice. ;)

  7. I love that paired with the red wreath behind it, it really makes it pop. coming over from sugar bee crafts where I saw this featured.

    oh, and I usually have a wreath, but it's just seasonal not holiday-ish except for xmas/Chanukah. not as creative as you!

    1. My kids really enjoy the holidays, so I try to liven it up for them but I'm CHEAP (hence the creativity). I totally left the tags on the red forsythia wreath until I was sure it was going to work ;)

      Thanks for stopping by!

  10. I absolutely love this wreath! The star is just perfect and I would have never thought to put another wreath behind it for a pop of color. Great idea!
