Make One Wreath for All Seasons

PicMonkey-Collage

I love the idea of having a festive wreath for my front door for every season but I don’t have the space to store a bunch of different wreaths. So I thought it would be fun to have one wreath that can be transformed from season to season with removable accessories. Since the 4th of July is next week I decided to start with a patriotic wreath.

When planning out my decorations I had a few of requirements  — they had to be easy to attach (and remove) from the wreath, they had to be inexpensive, and they couldn’t be too complicated. I managed to accomplish all of those things with this fun wreath!

4th of July Wreath

Supplies 

  • 18 inch grapevine wreath
  • 1  1/2 yards of your choice of fabric
  • 8 feet of rope, twine, or ribbon
  • U, S, A letter cutouts
  • Banner

Instructions

Start by gathering your fabric. I decided to use 6 different colors/patterns. I used about a 1/4 yard of each type of fabric. Cut your fabric into strips, about 6 inches x 1.5 inches. The great thing about this project is that the strips really don’t need to be precisely cut, just make sure they are around the same length and width.

I cut the red gingham fabric with pinking shears but that took a lot longer than cutting with regular scissors. I cut the rest of the  fabric with regular scissors and thought the fraying just added a little character.

I tied my fabric strips to this rope that I found at Michael’s but ribbon or twine would work as well. The ends of the rope came undone pretty easily so I covered them with a little piece of blue tape. I used about 8 feet of rope but you may want to use more or less depending on how much coverage you want.

Tie the fabric strips to the rope with a simple knot, then slide into place.

Be sure to leave a bit of rope at the end so that you can tie it to the wreath.

Tie one end of the rope to the back of the grapevine wreath. Wrap the fabric around the wreath and secure the other end of the rope

I found these fun glitter letters at Hobby Lobby but you could easily DIY them or use other letters of your choice. I got the pre-cut banner at Michael’s. That could be DIY’d as well!

Attach the letters to the banner. My letters had adhesive on the back so I didn’t use any glue. I might end up adding some glue later on for a stronger hold.

Tie the banner to the wreath. I made sure to cover the knot with some of the fabric.

And there you have it! A simple and fun patriotic wreath for the 4th of July!

  • I made a different wreath for each month and yes, it is a storage issue. Luckily I have a large storage area under the stairs. I have since reduced the collection to half! Your idea is so practical and quite brilliant! Thank you for including my grapevine St. Patrick’s Day wreath in the round-up!

  • We live with very limited storage space. I love the idea of using one wreath all year! By changing out the decorations, I will never get bored with it. Thank you, Jillee, for yet another GREAT decorating idea!

  • What a great idea! One wreath for every month or season. Why didn’t “I”n think of that! LOL
    Thanks so much for including my Noel wreath in the round-up!

  • These are beautiful. I like the idea of just storing the decorations and reusing the wreath. I have always wanted to have a wreath on my door – they are so welcoming- but I don’t have storage space. Thanks for the great idea, Jillee!
