DIY 4th of July Layered Wreath

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

The 4th of July is my husband’s favorite holiday.  Since we have 3 really small kids, the last couple of years we haven’t been able to go watch the fireworks.  We usually flip between the New York, Boston, and Washington D.C. fireworks show on T.V.  I miss seeing them live but I don’t miss the crowds or the traffic.

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 4th of July 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.

You’ll see all of the layers in the Layers Panel on the right side of your screen.

When I said this was easy, I meant it! There is nothing you have to do with this design except to resize it.  Simply keep the layers grouped and in the Edit Tool Bar enter the width of the size you want the wreath to be.  The largest it can go is 11.4″ width and 11.49″ height which is just under the 11.5 maximum size you can go in Cricut Design Space.

Resize the design in the Edit Toolbar.
Now you’re ready to cut the design.  Click Make It in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.

Now you're ready to cut. Click Make It in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.

After you cut the design, use the foam adhesive to put it together.  It’s best to use the adhesive in the same spot on each layer to get an even rise and layered look.

    1. Hi Karen! I’m so glad we could connect offline and you were able to download the file. I hope its a big hit at your party.

  3. Thanks Maggie for this beautiful file! I think I’ll attach it to a styrofoam wreath for stability.

  4. Thanks so much for the wreath. Do you have a video on how to assemble it? I can’t figure it out. Liz

    1. Hi Liz! I don’t currently have a video on how to assemble it but I’d love to help walk you through it. Cutting machines don’t cut them in order which makes it confusing. Once you’ve got all of the layers cut, place them on top of each other before gluing them down. Here is the order from bottom to top:

      – Red layer with petals no cuts on the inner circle
      – White layer with petals no cuts on the inner circle
      – Blue layer with star petals no cuts on the inner circle
      – Red layer with petals and cuts on the inner circle
      – White layer with petals and cuts on the inner circle
      – Blue layer with star petals and cuts on the inner circle
      – Larger mandala design
      – Smaller mandala design

      To line up the design reference the picture in the blog post. The petals that are closer together need to go on the same side specifically for the white and the blue layers so that the white stars show through. I really hope this helps. If you have any other questions please let me know. I’m more than happy to help and I’ll definitely see if I can put a video together for you!

  5. I appreciate your help with the file. Unfortunately I can’t it to lined up correctly so for now I’ll put this one aside.
