My Firecracker Rag Wreath is sure to add a little “POP” to your Fourth of July decor!
Rag wreaths can be pretty labor intensive. You have to cut your fabric strips and then spend hours knotting them to a wire floral ring. I usually turn on a good show to binge watch or my favorite movie.
The firecrackers were inspired by Mrs. Stewart herself! Martha had these cute firecracker candy favors and I knew I wanted to incorporate them into my Fourth of July decor.
Edited 2022: Sadly the link to these firecrackers inspired by Martha Stewart was no longer active since this original post debuted in 2012.
What you need to make your Firecracker Rag Wreath
- White tissue paper
- Empty toilet paper rolls
- Spray adhesive
- Scrapbook paper
- Baker’s twine
- Hot glue gun
I started by cutting out Martha’s printable and tracing it on the back of my scrapbook paper and set aside.
Take a piece of white tissue paper and spray it with the spray adhesive.
Roll of the toilet paper roll.
Twist the tissue paper on one end of the roll and secure with baker’s twine.
Stuff the other end into the roll.
Take the rectangular shaped piece of scrapbook paper that you cut out and spray the back with the spray adhesive. Roll the scrapbook paper around it just as you did with the tissue paper.
Set aside. Take the other piece you cut out and bring the sides together to make a cone.
Apply hot glue around the rim of the end that is stuffed and attach the cone.
My Firecracker Rag Wreath is sure to add a little “POP” to your Fourth of July decor! I had seen rag wreaths before on Pinterest, but never attempted one myself.
To complete the wreath, I painted some wooden stars and hot glued them to the baker’s twine.
