Supplies You’ll Need

Wire Wreath Frame (we chose 12″)
Clothespins (approx. 73, depending on the size of the wreath frame size)
Wooden Stars (depends on how many you want to add)
Spray Paint, Red
Spray Paint, Blue
Spray Paint, White
Hot Glue Gun
Hot Glue
Ribbon
Wreath Hanger

Step By Step Tutorial

  1. Head outside and put down a tarp, or painters cloth, to protect the ground/grass.
  2. Spray paint the wire wreath frame. It’s up to you what color you want to spray it. You can also leave it the color it is, if you prefer.
  3. Figure out how many of each color clothespins you’ll need and separate them.
  4. Take the first bunch of clothespins, clip them to a cardboard box, upright.
  5. Make sure to spray with the wind so the spray paint doesn’t hit you in the face (this may or may not have happened to us).
  6. Spray the first bunch of clothespins and then set aside.
  7. Repeat for the next two bunches of clothespins.
  8. You can either spray paint or hand paint the wooden stars, white.
  9. Let wreath frame, clothespins and stars dry fully.
  10. Clip the clothespins to the wreath, one by one. You’ll want to get them as close together as possible.
  11. We chose to clip 4 red and 4 white to make each stripe. This is completely up to your discretion.
  12. Hot glue each star to the blue section of the wreath. Choose how many you want to add. In our case, we wanted to add 50 but we ran out of space.
