Fourth of July Wreath
I wanted to do something a little different for my front door for the Independence Day and came up with this fun Fourth of July Wreath a couple of years ago. I am using the term “wreath” loosely here. I spotted this fabric on sale at JoAnn and decided it would go perfect with my Ikea UNG DRILL frame.

I have three of these frames and have used them so many times in different ways, but this is the first time I used one one a door. I don’t think this will be the last time, I am already imagining how I can style this for other holidays!
My frames were all black when I bought them, but have been all kinds of colors since then. The last time I used them was for my Cinderella Party which they were painted gold for. There are so many great patriotic fabric, but this one had the look I was going for. You have to love those coupons at JoAnn that are good for sale items! I saved twice on this one!
I began by gathering the fabric into a pouf at the top and simply tied the fabric on with some nondescript ribbon that wouldn’t really show.
I just gathered the fabric in two more locations along the frame, letting it flow down the side of the frame. Just play with your fabric until you get the look you want. After I had the fabric attached I tucked small American flags in a couple of spots and secured them with wire. You could add as many or as few flags as you would like.
I love the look of this with the gold ornate frame decked with the vintage look fabric. The Ikea Ung Drill frame is plastic and could be painted any color to change up the look. One of the things I really like about this decor for my door, is that nothing on this ie permanent, I can untie the ribbon holding on the fabric, cut the wire holding the flags on and my frame will be ready for whatever the next project is. The fabric will be folded up and may somehow be used in a different way for next year’s Fourth of July! I am still looking forward to painting our house later this year and getting rid of the green front door, but I am happy with how I will be greeting my guests from now through the Fourth of July holiday. Do you decorate your door for the Fourth of July? Maybe with my new light blue door, I will get out my frame and paint it silver this year! Look for my Fourth of July Patriotic Porch next week!
