Patriotic Stars and Stripes Wreath

Add a festive touch of red, white and blue to your home this summer by crafting this patriotic stars and stripes wreath. A whimsical take on the American flag, this wreath features red ribbon stripes and a spray of white stars on a navy grosgrain bow. This wreath makes such a statement, you’ll never believe how easy it is to make!

DIY Patriotic Wreath--Perfect for Memorial Day and July 4th!

For this project, you will need…

  • Grapevine wreath
  • 3 yards of 2″ red grosgrain ribbon
  • 2 yards of 2.5″ navy grosgrain ribbon
  • 2 yards of wired burlap ribbon
  • 20-25 small wood star cutouts
  • White spray paint
  • Hot glue


  • Spray paint the wood stars and allow them to dry completely.
  • Wrap the red ribbon around the perimeter of the wreath, securing with hot glue as you go.
  • Create a large bow with the wired burlap ribbon, leaving two long tails. Affix the bow to the wreath with hot glue.
  • Tie a bow with the navy grosgrain ribbon, leaving two long tails. Use hot glue to affix the painted stars to the tails in a random pattern. Affix an additional star to the center of the bow, and then affix the bow to the wreath with hot glue, positioning it on top of the burlap bow.

Your patriotic stars and stripes wreath is complete!

Lovely patriotic wreath at Positively Splendid. Perfect for displaying all summer long!

I love how the white stars pop against the bold blue ribbon…

Embellish navy grosgrain ribbon with painted wooden stars. Great idea!

…and the wrapped red ribbon mimics the stripes on the American flag. 

This patriotic wreath is so pretty, and SO easy to make!

I can’t wait to display this wreath all summer long!
