If there’s one piece of seasonal decor that I love to display, it’s a wreath. Wreaths are the perfect way to not only welcome guests to your home, but also to welcome upcoming holidays and seasons! The only drawback to seasonal wreaths is that you hang them on your door for a few weeks, and before you know it the holiday is over and it’s time to decorate for the next one. Then you have to find a place to store all these wreaths until next year. And trust me, they can take up a lot of space, and it adds up quickly! Luckily, I’ve come up with a super sneaky way that allows me to hang the same wreath on my door all year round and nobody can tell the difference!
My secret is that I’ve created an interchangeable wreath. I attach everything to the wreath using things like pins and threads so that when it’s time to switch it out, everything will easily come off of the wreath. Just by getting a little creative, I can have a new wreath hanging on my door for every holiday and season without having to buy and store a bunch of wreath forms. You can check out some of the previous versions of my wreath below.
One wreath… so many possibilities!
Having an interchangeable wreath really saves me so much money, and the best part is I don’t need to worry about storing boxes and bins full of wreaths that I’ll only use a few weeks every year. I am all about anything that’ll save space in our small home, so this wreath is a huge win in my book!
Even though I recently changed out the wreath for summer, it was pretty much a no-brainer that I’d be making a festive 4th of July wreath and other decor to celebrate the holiday. My husband has spent over 10 years serving in the military, so we are all about that red, white, and blue!
This DIY interchangeable 4th of July wreath is seriously one of the easiest versions of the wreath I’ve done. Not to mention, since I was reusing my wreath form, the only thing I needed to buy was the fabric, which cost me all of $3 (love that cheap broadcloth!). Where else can you get a handmade 4th of July wreath for $3?
Supplies Needed to Create DIY Interchangeable 4th of July Wreath
This post contains affiliate links. For more information, see my disclosure.
- Wreath form (I use a burlap-wrapped straw wreath.)
- Red, white, and blue fabric (I got 1/2 yard of each and had some left over.)
- Cereal box, white paint, & foam brush OR thick white card stock/foam
Steps to Create DIY Interchangeable 4th of July Wreath
1. Start out by making your stars. If you’re super thrifty like me, you can make them from a cereal box. Cut out stars from a cereal box and paint them white. If you want to save some time, instead of painting a cereal box you can just cut out stars from thick white card stock or foam.
2. Cut your fabric into strips. Tie them around the front of the wreath. Alternate red and white stripes for 3/4 of the wreath. Do the last quarter of the wreath with blue stripes. My strips were about 2.5 inches wide by 18 inches long. I was kind of in a hurry and didn’t mind a raggedy look, so I just tore my fabric into strips.
3. Secure your stars to the wreath using pins. I used white pins right in the center of the stars, and I think they make it look really neat.
Hang your wreath up and admire your festive DIY interchangeable 4th of July wreath! I use these awesome hooks to hang my wreaths without damaging the door or weatherstripping. Because I love my wreaths, but I love my home more!
This was probably the quickest, easiest version of my interchangeable wreath I’ve ever done. Short and sweet, and perfect for summer! Because who has time to spend all day crafting a wreath when there are beaches to lay on, books to read, and gardens to plant? Well, a girl can dream anyways.
