Patriotic Red White and Blue Star Wreath. Celebrate summer with this easy and adorable wreath using wood stars.
Patriotic Red White and Blue Star Wreath
One of my favorite ways to decorate for Summer is using a patriotic theme! Red white and blue is so festive and perfect for Fourth of July, if you celebrate in the United States; and red and white for Canada Day. This year I created this festive little wreath using wood stars I ordered online. It is so easy to make!
Handcrafted Society June Challenge
It’s time for our monthly Handcrafted Society challenge. This month the challenge was paint something red, white and blue. So of course I immediately thought of the Fourth of July. And in Utah we also celebrate our state’s birthday on the 24th of July. So decorating with red white and blue is something I love to do in June and keep up throughout the month of July!

How to Easily Spray Paint Stars
I used to paint small items with a small brush and figured getting paint all over my hands was just part of the process. Then I discovered an easy way to do it! This is what you do:
- Get a cardboard box.
- Cut a piece of duct tape that is the length of the box.
- Cut two smaller pieces of duct tape.
- Put the longer piece of duct tap eon the box with the sticky side UP.
- Attach the two smaller piece of duct tape at both ends to secure the long piece. These pieces of duct tape are put down with the sticky side DOWN to secure the long piece.
- Then lay the stars on top of the sticky duct tape.
- Spray paint the stars and let them dry.
- Do this with each color spray paint that you want to use. I did it three times with red, white and blue spray paint.

Create a Patriotic Mantel
I used the red white and blue star wreath as the focal point for my patriotic mantel. I hung the wreath on top of a frame that has blue and white gingham fabric inside. To easily hang the wreath, I took a piece of white thread, wrapped it around the top of the wreath and then tied it into a large loop. I looped the other side of the thread over the finials at the top of the frame. If you are using a square frame, you can take the other end of the thread loop and put it over the top of the frame and secure it with tape so the wreath will hang in the middle of the picture frame.
Add Patriotic Elements
Other elements that I used to create this patriotic mantel are:
- Large White Frame
- Blue Gingham Fabric
- Red white and blue runner
- Patriotic pennant banner
- Small flags
- Red and white striped vase
