Supplies Needed

Make your Patriotic Bobby Pins

  1. Slide bobby pins onto a piece of thick paper or thin cardboard, leaving space for paint that will get around the edges.Patriotic Bobby Pins are fun and easy way to show your colors!
  2. Paint the red and white on bobby pins (minus the white stars). Paint halfway across for the pins that will also have blue. Let dry completely. One coat might be enough if it’s a thicker polish- if not, paint another coat.Patriotic Bobby Pins are fun and easy way to show your colors!
  3. Add the blue and let it dry.
  4. Use the head of a straight pin to make the white dots. I did four dots on the pins with the red stripe and three dots on the white ones.Dip the head in the polish and gently tap down on the pin. The dots can take awhile to dry- avoid squashing them for awhile.Patriotic Bobby Pins are fun and easy way to show your colors!
  5. When totally dry, remove from card and enjoy!

Supplies Needed

  • Cupcake Liners!Make a quick and easy patriotic wreath using cupcake wrappers. Show your red, white, and blue at home or a party!
    I used Wilton’s red and blue wrappers because I love the shades and they’re a tiny bit thicker than some other brands I’ve used. You could also add in some white. Click to see where I found them. You could even try this patriotic kit instead of the solid colors.
  • Foam Wreath Form, like this one
  • Straight Pins
  • Silver Stars
    I found the stars in this red, white, and blue pack
  • Red, White or Blue Ribbon
  • Glue Gun or Glue Dots

Make your Patriotic Wreath

  1. Turn cupcake wrappers inside out and fold or bend them to form a dish-like shape. Make a quick and easy patriotic wreath using cupcake wrappers. Show your red, white, and blue at home or a party!
  2. Stick a pin in the middle of a cupcake wrapper, then stick it onto the wreath form. Make a quick and easy patriotic wreath using cupcake wrappers. Show your red, white, and blue at home or a party!
  3. Continue around the wreath form, randomly placing colors and creating various shapes. If you like the wrappers closer together, then do it! I gave mine a little space to spread out and show their colors.Make a quick and easy patriotic wreath using cupcake wrappers. Show your red, white, and blue at home or a party!
  4. At some point, cut a length of ribbon for the wreath hanger. If you want the ribbon to go over the door, measure the distance from where the wreath will be positioned on the door and where you’ll hook the wreath on the back of the door. Double that length so you can fold the ribbon in half. If you’re hanging on a nail, decide how long you want the hanger to be.
  5. Take your ribbon at the halfway point and pin it around the wreath form.Make a quick and easy patriotic wreath using cupcake wrappers. Show your red, white, and blue at home or a party!
  6. Continue adding wrappers until wreath form is covered.
  7. If there are gaps or you’re not crazy about how some of the liners are sitting, take some hot glue or glue dots and put tiny dots between liners you want to touch. I used bobby pins to hold the liners together while the hot glue cooled off. If you’re planning to hang your wreath on a door that moves a lot, put a few dots of hot glue throughout to hold the liners on the form and to each other. The liners could pull off the pins if they move a lot.
  8. If you’d rather not add stars to your wreath, you’re finished! I really love it just like this.

  9. If you want to add the stars, take your glue gun or glue dots and secure the stars wherever you like them.
