Happy Memorial Day! I hope everyone is enjoying a long weekend while remembering those who served our great country. We were able to get in some fun family time this weekend at our local amusement and water park. I also set up this fun and easy patriotic craft for the kids this weekend. When I saw a pin for this Patriotic Star Wreath Paper Plate Craft, I knew it would be perfect for Week 22 of the Pinterest Challenge.
A few weeks ago, I set up an “Invitation to Play” for Graylie with cloud dough. That was such a hit that I decided to do something similar over the weekend. This is more of an “Invitation to Craft” and included all the supplies to complete this Star Wreath Paper Plate Craft.

I included the following supplies:
- Sticker Gems
- Glitter Glue
- Paper Stars
I used my Cricut Machine to cut the stars out of red and blue cardstock. You could also use a star punch or cut them out by hand. If you do have a Cricut, this was super easy since they already have all the basic shapes loaded into the Design Space App. I am still trying to figure my Cricut out and want to make an effort to use it more. Most of you probably already know about this feature!
Once I had all the supplies set up and the middles cut out of the paper plates, I let them get started right away. I gave them a few instructions:
- Color the paper plate first.
- Use a glue stick to place the stars around the wreath.
- Add glitter glue and sticker gems last.
Once the wreaths were decorated, I punched a couple of holes at the top for the ribbon. I tied a bow while leaving a little bit of a loop at the back so they could hang them up.
This is a super simple and inexpensive craft to make! If you don’t want to mess with the paper stars, I think foam stickers would also be a lot of fun with this. If you are looking for a craft to do this summer, definitely give this one a try!
