I came across a grapevine star wreath at a thrift store and even though it was a little ragged looking, I knew it would be easy to re-wrap with jute and turn it into a fresh, new patriotic star shaped wreath DIY project.
Decorating this type of wreath is super easy and quick to make! It’s basically just pulling apart some flower buds and leaves, cutting some ribbon, and hot glueing everything on the wreath. Follow along to get the visual idea for how to make.
PATRIOTIC STAR SHAPED WREATH DIY
It’s time for another monthly Sustainable Pinterest Challenge, where my blogger friends and I pick an idea from one of our Pinterest boards and make it into a “use it up,” recycled, upcycled craft or decor. Our June theme is “Thrift Store Find.” Be sure to click the links at the end of my post to see six more thrift find makeovers!

HOW TO MAKE A PATRIOTIC WREATH
I needed to remove the old twine at the joints and re-wrap with fresh jute since my star wreath came from a thrift store.
PREP THE FLOWERS AND RIBBON:
Pull geranium and buttercup roses off of their stems as seen in picture below.
Pull the leaves off of the buttercup rose stems. The 3 leaves on each stem are connected together and will rip a bit after pulling hard, but you can just trim the ragged edges at the leaf base.
Cut the blue ribbon in half, lengthwise, and make long strips.
TIE ON THE RIBBON STRIPS:
On each star point, find where there’s enough room to insert the ribbon and tie it on.
You will be tying the ribbon around one individual grapevine stem.
Each star point should allow for at least one to two ribbon strips if similar to mine. Leave enough ribbon ends peeking out to be seen. Then cut each end at an angle.
GLUE ON FLOWERS AND LEAVES:
Randomly use hot glue to attach the flowers and leaves, varying the placement at each star point.
ATTACH A HANGER:
Use hot glue to attach a jute hanger on the back side of the star wreath as seen in picture below.
If there’s room, you can slip the jute hanger under the jute wrap like I did, but if not, just glue on top.
See, I told you this wreath was super easy and quick to make. I hope you have gotten the inspiration to make your own patriotic star shape wreath!
