This red, white and blue firework wreath was very fun to make. It only took me about 15 minutes to make… the fun part about this wreath is that I did not use any glue, hot glue, or tape. I simply used wire so I can easily remove the fabric, tulle ribbon, and other materials to repurpose them next year.
Memorial Day and Independence Day are such great holidays! I am so grateful for the freedoms I enjoy.
Both of my grandfathers served in the military. My dad’s dad was in the Air Force during the Korean War and my mom’s dad was in the Marines during WWII. I’m so proud of their service, bravery, and sacrifices as well as those currently serving and other veterans.
I am so excited to have decorated for Memorial Day and Independence Day early this year.
When I see my front porch it reminds me of the gratitude I have to live in a free land with opportunities and religious freedoms.
This red, white and blue firework wreath was super easy to put together. You just need a few supplies and you’ll be good to go.
If you live in a different country, this would be easy to customize to your own country’s flag/colors.

How to Make this Red, White and Blue Firework Wreath
Continue reading and/or watch the video tutorial on this page.
1- Rip 12″ seams of 2 yards of fabric to make 3 pieces that are 12″x 72″. Rip the edges of either end as well.
2- Wrap the hoop with each piece of yarn.
To begin, I tucked and wrapped the fabric around the hoop. At the end, I secured the fabric with the tulle ribbon and wire tinsel star garland. (See video if you are not sure how to begin or end).
Tip- Keep the tautness consistent as you wrap. I didn’t do the best job at this so one side of the wreath looks a little thinner than the other.
3- Wrap the tulle ribbon and tinsel star garland together around the entire wreath.
When I made my way around to the beginning of where I began wrapping the tulle ribbon, I cut the tulle ribbon to size but then I continued winding the 25′ of tinsel star garland wire around the wreath until its end.
4- Pull the three firework branch ends off of the spray stem and using the small wire/branches, wind it around the base of the wreath to form a group of three.
Please see video if this doesn’t make sense.
5-Using floral wire and wire cutters, thread wire into the glitter stars and place one on either side of the firework cluster and then secure the star with floral wire on the back of the wreath.
Hang the wreath.
