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.
Materials & Supplies
- Cricut Maker, Cricut Explore, or another cutting machine
- Cardstock - Red, White, Blue and Silver Glitter
- Foam Adhesive ¼ inch circles
How to Make a 4th of July Layered Wreath in Cricut Design Space
Follow these easy steps to make the 4th of July Layered Wreath using Cricut Design Space.
Open Cricut Design Space and click the + to create a new project.
In the Design Panel on the left, select "Upload."
Click Upload Image, then Browse, and navigate to the file on your device to upload it to Cricut Design Space. Here you can change the name and add tags. Click "Save."
Once you have the file uploaded, select it and click "Insert Images" to bring it onto your canvas.
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.
Now you're ready to cut the design. 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.
