Here's a tutorial for a simple American Flag wreath from cardboard and tissue paper. We made this one for Veterans Day, but it would be great for any patriotic holiday. This project is so cheap and simple! Everyone has a cardboard box laying around the house, and I got the tissue paper from the dollar store!
Tissue Paper (red, white, and blue)
Glue (any type is fine)
First take a box and cute out a large circle with a small hole in the middle. The size is completely up to how large you want the wreath to be. This one has around a 16 inch diameter.
Next cut out small pieces of tissue paper anywhere from 1inch x 1inch to 2inches x 2inches. They don't have to be perfect.
Now draw out the lines of the flag and circles for where you would like the strips to be.
You can use any type of glue. I just smeared liquid Elmer's glue on the cardboard surface that I wanted to cover with tissue paper.
Once the cardboard has been covered with glue, use a pen to glue the middle of the tissue paper to the cardboard in the design you drew.
When you're done, you will have a vibrant wreath that will stand out on any door! This would be easy to do with different colors for seasons and events. It would be cute in different pinks and blues for a baby shower.
