The lunch bags required for the basic wreath can be found for about 30 for $1 at the Dollar Store. Or you can recycle 2 lunch bags.

And crepe paper ribbon rolls can be found at the Dollar Store, too.

This could easily be a group project, or a 4th of July craft.

How To Make a Patriotic Star Wreath.

1. Use these directions to make a Basic Brown Paper Bag Wreath with 2 lunch bags.

2. Wrap the wreath with white crepe paper ribbon, taping one end under the wreath.

Continue wrapping for a second layer of white crepe paper over the first layer, and tape the end on the back of the wreath.

3. Attach red crepe paper ribbon to the back of the wreath and wrap over the white, leaving white stripes between the red stripes.

I folded the crepe paper ribbon in half lengthwise to make a narrower ribbon for wrapping, as this is a smaller wreath.

Tape the end to the back of the wreath.

4. Make a bow with blue crepe paper or ribbon.

Use a bit of glue to hold the bow in place, and tie blue ribbon around the bow and wreath to keep the bow in position.

5. Arrange star buttons around the wreath and glue in place.

(If hot glue is used, an adult should supervise.)

The finished wreath could make a nice centerpiece for a table setting, with a candle in the middle.

Tips.

Instead of crepe paper, you can use ribbon, or 5 inch wide strips of tissue paper that you’ve taped end to end.

If you can’t find star shaped buttons, you can probably find star shaped craft foam pieces, or make your own stars from card stock or craft foam.

Hot glue or Tacky Glue can be used to attach the stars.

If hot glue is used, an adult should be supervising.
