I had a tinsel star garland wreath that had seen better days. It looked similar to this one:

But after using it for several seasons, the tinsel faded in the sun. I tried unwrapping the wreath and rewrapping it so that the unfaded garland was on the outside, but it didn’t work very well. I didn’t wrap it back just right, and some of the faded parts still faced forwards. It looked pretty sad….

More Patriotic Ideas

Recently I had another idea. I unwrapped the tinsel garland part and set it aside. Then I started wrapping faux Christmas branches around the plastic wreath form. I LOVE repurposing old Christmas trees!!!

Star Wreath, Before

If you have never taken an old Christmas tree apart before, here is a video of my daughter helping me take one apart:

The pieces of faux Christmas tree branches have flexible metal in them. Because of that, you can bend and twist the branches like bread twist ties. If you want, you can use hot glue to secure the branches, but I did not use any hot glue in this wreath.

The fake greenery can be hard and rough on your hands. Be prepared to work slowly and carefully.

Once I had all the greenery wrapped onto the star shape the way I liked it, I spray painted it all white.

I had some sparkly blue flower miniature garland leftover from making a Patriotic Pine Cone Tree last year.

I took it apart and used the beautiful blue flowers for accents on my star wreath.

I just love how this simple, beautiful, white star wreath turned out! It is very versatile because not only can I use it for Memorial Day or Independence Day, I can also use it at Christmas time!

Star Wreath, AFTER!

Since my name is Liberty, I just had to get this patriotic doormat with the Liberty Bell on it when I saw it at my local home improvement store.

A simple wreath and a simple doormat made my door area look so nice! Let me also tell you that having a half window in our front door lets in so much light, compared to the solid door that we replaced. I really enjoy that extra light shining through!

  1. I need your star wreath to go with my star lantern. I love when you can repurpose something abs make it new again. Thanks for joining the hop. Love the door mat too!

  2. I love the way it turned out! I would have never thought to use spray paint christmas garland for something like this. But it’s perfect! I also love how you painted the trim around your door. 🙂

    1. Thank you, Amy! I painted my door trim because I noticed a nice house in our neighborhood had their siding done like that… I’m glad you like it! (Did you see my post on that?)


  3. You clever girl–I love being able to reuse seasonal decor for more than one holiday! Your doormat is perfect! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

  4. Hi Liberty,

    This turned out really cute like the added sparkle tge blue stars add.

    I hear you about faux evergreen. I get rashes and little hives from working with it so wear gloves.

    Have a great day!


  5. Liberty you door decor looks amazing. Who would of thought to spray paint the green to make it look like that. I love the star decor for all of our holidays. Changing up the decorations on the stars could fit almost all holidays. Great job!

    1. Yes, Terrie, I will be changing up the decoration on the star because sadly, the blue flowers faded in the sun…..! At least I got my pictures before that happened…
