Are you ready to make a Patriotic Wreath? I was on the fence of what type of summer wreath I wanted to make. I happened to stop by our local Dollar Store for a few things for Sammie’s summer party when I spotted red, white and blue mesh and a few other floral supplies. I grabbed the supplies for the wreath tossed them into the cart. I remember thinking I saw several ways to make a mesh wreath, so why not give it a try. Typically I like making grapevine wreaths but, every now and again I love trying other ideas for wreath making. 

There are several ways to DIY patriotic wreaths, such as cutting strips of fabric, using bandanas, painted clothes pins… For this wreath, we used floral mesh and a wire frame to make the wreath. You just weave the mesh through the openings of the wreath. To decorate it I grabbed my red, white and blue stars I purchased last year and a patriotic bow. The bonus to making this patriotic door wreath is that it’s quick, easy, budget-friendly and fun. Perfect for a last minute wreath.

  7. Repeat this process for each color of mesh, or each roll if using a tri-color mesh.

  13. You are done.


There are several tutorials on You Tube. Some cut the mesh and create different looks. I enjoyed how quick and easy it is to use this method. This makes the perfect patriotic wreath and last minute patriotic decorations.

The total cost may vary depending on supplies you purchase and where you purchase them. But, even if you get supplies at Amazon this is a very budget friendly wreath. Not all Dollar Stores have the supplies.

Time may vary by skill level.

If you want an even fuller look grab 2 rolls of each color! (Our store was out and I got mine back in May!)
