DIY Patriotic Star Wreath Project

It’s officially time for me to decorate everything in red, white, and blue! As soon as the calendar turns to May, I pull out all of our patriotic decor. Some of my very favorite decorations for all of the holidays are the ones my own boys made when they were in lower elementary school. And, the ones I love the most are their old paper plate wreath projects. There is just something so special about them. So, with that in mind, I decided to make a DIY Patriotic Star Wreath Project. And, my mom and sister are sharing the project with their classes too!

DIY Patriotic Star Wreath Project


  • 1 piece of each red and blue construction paper.
  • Scissors.
  • Paper plate.
  • School Glue. 
  • Optional – White paper, and dimensional foam tape

Begin this project by drawing several stars on red and blue construction paper. You can even fold the paper into sixths and draw one star and cut it out.

Next, cut out the middle section of the paper plate, leaving just the trim.

Now, add glue to the back side of the stars and glue them around the edge of the paper plate. Allow the glue to dry, then, layer the excess stars to fill in any white spaces. You could even cut out smaller white paper stars to layer on top of the red and blue paper stars. And, you could use dimensional foam tape to add more dimension to the layered patriotic star wreath!

Allow to dry and hang it on the door!

This project is so easy to do. If you are a teacher, you could even pre-cut a bunch of stars for younger kids to glue onto paper plates.

That’s it! I hope you’re inspired to create a DIY patriotic star wreath project with your kids or classroom this summer.
