The Best Patriotic Wreath Tutorials for Memorial Day Weekend & the 4th of July

Are you ready to celebrate Memorial Day with a patriotic wreath? How about the 4 of July? These holidays are a great way for Americans to celebrate their love of their country, to honor the troops, and to break out the barbecue! But don’t forget that they’re also a great excuse to do some patriotic decorating! Who doesn’t love a little Red, White, and Blue???

So we thought we’d give you some tips on how to make a patriotic wreath for your home decorating and party planning. After all, America sure is beautiful, and you should have a wreath to match! Memorial Day and 4 of July decorating ideas start here!

Red, White & Blue and American Symbolism

When you think of The United States of America, of course the first colors you think of are Red, White, and Blue! At the very minimum, a patriotic wreath includes these traditional colors, as they make it instantly recognizable as a wreath celebrating the great US of A.

On top of this triad of patriotic colors, think about the patterning of the American flag – stars and stripes! One hot tip we received: When you’re including stars, make sure they’re never on the bottom of the wreath, but towards the top! This is proper flag etiquette.

You can start to take your patriotic decorating to the next level with some additional symbolism. Incorporate an American Eagle, Uncle Sam, the Constitution, fireworks imagery, or inspiring American words, phrases, or lyrics. For example “Home of the Free and the Brave” is a popular choice. (One of the best ways to incorporate some of this imagery is with our Character Board and vinyl decals! More on that later.)

How to Make a Patriotic Wreath

One thing we love about decorating for Memorial Day and the 4 of July is that as long as you use Red, White, and Blue, you have a lot of flexibility. You can create just about any kind of design and it will immediately feel ramped up for great for American patriotism. By working with these colours, you’ve actually got a lot of room for creativity.

That means that you don’t actually have to make it a specific way, unless you prefer to follow a very specific tutorial. You could just use the classic American colors and let your imagination and creativity run wild! Add some stars and stripes to take it to the next level, and you’re golden!
