DIY Canada Day Wreath

Posted on June 18, 2018 in Crafts/ DIY

With Canada Day right around the corner (how did that even happen?) I decided it would be fun to try my hand at a DIY for Canada Day! Well, I had an idea and a picture in my head but I wasn’t sure how well it would turn out. I am pretty pleased though, I think it looks rather cute. After making this unicorn wreath I was really anxious to try this out for Canada Day.For this I wanted to do something simple. I bought the foam wreath at the dollar tree for $1.25 and 2 packs of white and 2 packs of red ribbon each for $1.25ea so this whole wreath? Cost me a whopping $6.25! I’d love to find something that cheap in the store this cute – but I’m glad I was able to make it as it not only helps me with my DIY portfolio but it also makes me proud to display!

Materials Needed:

  • 1 foam wreath
  • 2 packs of red and white ribbon
  • Scrap cardboard piece
  • Scissors
  • Glue Gun
  • Red Paint/Paint brush

Instructions:

  1. First you’ll want to cut your ribbon. I took some and wrapped it around to see where I wanted to cut it so I’d be able to tie them and there would be extra to tie + have some left over
  2. Go around the sides the wreath with red, then the middle parts with white (you can do however you want but I wanted it to look similar to the Canadian Flag!)
  3. Tie them tightly, I tied twice. Then turn inward.
  4. Once your wreath is done with all the red and white ribbon draw a Maple Leaf on card stock or cardboard (I used a cardboard flap from a box we had) and cut out the leaf.
  5. Paint the leaf red, and hot glue gun it where you’d like on your wreath
  6. Hang it with pride!

Pre-cutting my ribbon is the only way I could have gotten this done in a timely manner. It would have taken forever to cut, and then tie at the same time so I was glad I was smart enough to cut the ribbon before and then tie all at once!I decided to make the ends of the tie face inward and I think it looks like a great representation of fireworks! I am thrilled with how it turned out and am proud to display it on my front door! Super cute, and perfect for Canada Day but great to display all summer. I’ll be keeping mine on my front door for the month of July. Looks really cute and especially right now with everything going on in the world – I’m proud to be Canadian, so I’ll display it!

Happy Canada Day all!

    You did a great job making this! It’s such an affordable decoration that would brighten any door, and looks as good as some of the ones you see premade in stores.
