DIY 4th of July Layered Wreath

Looking for patriotic home decor?  This layered DIY 4th of July wreath is easy to put together using your cutting machine and cardstock. 

Because we have three young kids, going into the city to watch the fireworks can be challenging. So the way we really get into the holiday is by decorating the house, the yard, and ourselves in Red, White, and Blue!  We have a lot of fun with it and it makes it exciting for the kids.

I’ve made lots of Independence Day decorations over the years but this one is by far my favorite one. This design is 8 layers and is perfect to place on a door or wall.

This project features multiple layers for a truly jaw-dropping design! You can customize this with different types of paper to get a one-of-a-kind look. Just imagine this project in a glitter paper! Wouldn’t that be gorgeous?

Are you ready to get started on this project?

Carefully peel your mat away from the cardstock to avoid tearing or rolling your cardstock.

Continue to load, cut, and unload the rest of the cuts until you have all of the elements cut out. 

Step 4 – Assemble Layered Wreath

Lay the pieces out in front of you in order.

Using foam adhesive, carefully put your layered wreath together. It’s best to use the adhesive in the same spot on each layer to get an even rise and layered look.
