DIY July 4th Wreath with Glitter Dust Paint


I just jumped on the pool noodle wreath bandwagon and whipped myself up a new front door July 4th wreath.  This is a fun project and pretty inexpensive, too.


I started by using packing tape to keep the two ends of the noodle together to make the wreath form.
 

Don't be shy on the amount of tape you use! You don't want this thing popping open.


Then I used spray adhesive and scraps of burlap to wrap around the noodle.  I wrapped two layers the entire way around so the red noodle wouldn't peak through.


Now she's ready to be embellished. I picked up the seven unfinished wood stars - four large and three small - at the craft store. 


They were wayyyyy too boring for my taste so I painted them with DecoArt Glamor Dust Glitter Paint in sapphire blue, sizzling red and silver bling.


They each took a few coats.


You can see, the glitter is subtle and not too over the top.  For a more intense color, paint a base coat first and then add the twinkle glitter paint on top.


I love that little twinkle the glitter provides.


The stars were adhered to the burlap with a hot glue gun.

Finally, I cut the mini bunting on my Silhouette die cut machine and used red and white twine to attach it to the wreath!

This pool noodle wreath with glitter stars is the perfect addition to our front door for the 4th of July.
