DIY 4th Of July Wreath

This 4th of July Wreath is made with Clothes Pins. It is an easy, fun and a cute project that you can do with your children for the 4th of July Holiday.

Everywhere you turn, all you see is red, white and blue…reminding you that Independence Day is almost here. Everyone is planning what they are going to do and where they are going to celebrate the 4th of July fireworks display.

Besides the food preparation and the pool party, it’s nice to see the decoration displaying the beautiful combination of red, white and blue. If you are like me, I love to create a lovely wreath and that’s why I am sharing this 4th of July Clothes Pin Wreath with you.

It is a DIY project, a 4th of July Wreath that involves everyone in the family, which makes it much more fun.

Where to get the items?

I got all of the items at my local Dollar Tree and Walmart. The Clothes Pins, Star Foam Stickers and Paints were all bought at Walmart. The pack of Clothes Pins were $0.97 each with 50 in the pack. The paints were $0.50 each and the Star Foam Stickers were $1.97.

As for the 14″ wreath form and paint brushes, I got those at the Dollar Tree. So each item was for $1.00.

Thirdly, assemble the wreath by arranging 4 red clothespins, 4 white clothespins alternatively, until those are finish. Then do the same with the blue clothespins.

Finally, add the star foams stickers to the blue clothespins and use a piece of ribbon to tie onto the wreath. Display your 4th of July wreath on your front door for others to see.

DIY 4th Of July Wreath Project

Materials Needed

  • 1 14 inch wreath form
  • 3 different color acrylic paint (red, white and blue) or spray paints
  • 1 package of foam brush
  • 1 small paint brush (optional)
  • 2 packs of clothes pins (each pack has 50 and you will need about 74 Clothes Pins)
  • 1 pack of Star Foam Stickers

Instructions

  1. Use the scissor to open up the clothespin package. Divide out 74 of clothes pins. Separate them: 14, 28 and 32.
  2. Use the package Foam Paint Brush to paint the outside of the 14 blue, 28 red and 32 white and allow to dry for about an hour.
  3. Then use the small paint brush to paint the inside of the clothespins and allow to dry for at least an hour. This is optional, you don’t have to paint the inside.
  4. Once the clothespins are all dry, start to arrange the clothespins on the 14″ wreath form. For the red and white clothespins, it will be 4 for each color alternatively. The wreath has 4 circles, so I used the first 2 inner circle to make a pattern. The 1st pin on the 2nd circle from the middle and the 2nd pin on the 2 circles from the middle. Repeat the same for the 3rd and 4th clothes pins.
  5. As for the blue clothespins, arrange all 14 with the same pattern on the wreath.
  6. Use the Star Foam Stickers to arrange on the blue clothespins. The amount you use is your choice.
  7. Use a piece of ribbon or cord (your choice of color) to tie onto the wreath.
  8. Place your wreath on your front door, to display your design and creativity.

Notes

  1. You can paint the inside of each clothespin if you want.
  2. Use hot glue to secure each clothespin onto the wire wreath. This will keep each clothespin in place and stop it from flipping over.

Well, I hope you enjoy making this 4th of July Wreath made with Clothes Pins as much as I did.

Happy 4th of July to you and your family. Enjoy your Independence Day with your family and friend and please be safe.
