Easy Felt Wreath Craft for Fourth of July

This is a super easy and quick Fourth of July craft that anyone can make. The best part is, it requires no sewing. So get out your felt and start crafting!

While simple to make, it will make your home look festive and patriotic. You just need some red, white, and blue felt cut into strips. It’s a great way to use up leftover felt scraps from other projects.

Having kindergarten age children help with tying knots is a good fine motor activity.

You may want to cut the felt strips ahead of time; however, older kids (especially tweens and teens) can assist with cutting the felt.

Making no sew felt wreaths is a great project to do at camp, scouts, as well as at home.

Red, White, and Blue Felt Wreath Craft Supplies:

In this tutorial we used 9x12in Kunin Felt Craft Sheets in Red, Red with White Polka Dots, White, Neon Blue, and Ocean Blue.

You can also find this craft felt at Joann and Wal-Mart or you could use these soft felt sheets available on Amazon.

How to Make a No Sew Felt Wreath for Independence Day:

Start by gathering all of your supplies and remove the label from the embroidery hoop. Organize all the felt colors and use shades and patterns with red, white, and blue. 

Next cut your felt sheets into strips around 8-9 inches long. If you are sorting through felt scraps, look for pieces that are long enough.

Strips about 1 inch wide are good, but you can also cut strips with width larger and smaller too.

For the 10 inch hoop you will need approximately 100 felt strips. If you use a bigger or smaller hoop, you’ll need to adjust the number of strips used.

Then begin tying the felt strips around the embroidery hoop using double knots. Add strips in a red, white, and blue pattern or at random.

This wreath would also be fun to do in a color blocked or flag order. You could also add a few ribbon strips throughout if you wanted.

Continue tying strips of felt, working around the entire hoop, pushing the strips together to get as many tied on as possible. The more felt strips tied onto the hoop the fluffier your wreath will be.
