You will be surprised to know that my Wreath is actually made from Pipe Insulation .Yeap you read that correctly!
Let me tell you first how I came up with the idea for this Fourth of July Wreath.
I was recently at the Dollar Store when I saw the Red, White, and Blue Duck Tape.
I was enjoying some time alone while my son was at a Playdate at a friend’s house. As I held the tape in my hand a hundred million projects popped in my head.
I knew I wanted to make something for Fourth of July, but I didn’t want to spend a lot of money.
I decided to buy two rolls of the Red, White, and Blue Duck tape; while at the checkout counter I got an idea.
I went back into the store searching for Stars that I could use to place on a Wreath. I found one of those glittery Clackers that my little boy is always begging me to buy for him.
I was excited to check out and get home to start on my Wreath. As I driving home I kept thinking I hope my husband didn’t use the Pipe Insulation I saw the other day in the Garage.
When I got home I found the Piping Insulation still lying on the garage floor, after a few minutes of doing a Happy Dance I made my $3 Wreath in less than 30 minutes.
Supplies to Make DIY 4th of July Wreath

How to Make the 4th of July Wreath
4. Make a bow with the ribbon and using the floral wire or glue gun attached it to the Wreath.
Note- I used ribbon I had already. My Wreath cost me $3 to make. I love how festive it turned out.
Hi, Mel! Thank you so much for the kind words. I find the pipe insulation easy to work with and it's inexpensive. I tried using pool noodles in the past but find them thick to hang on my door because I have a storm door. You should try making a wreath they really are easy to make. Try making your own wreath form and wrapping it with material that you have already at home and embellish it. Have a lovely week, Kim

Such a cute idea and my girls LOVE duct tape! I am jealous that you found duct tape at your dollar store!!! That is a real find!
Thank you so much! Sometimes I can find cute duck tape at the Dollar Tree. Also, you can go online to the Dollar Tree and order stuff you want to be delivered to a Dollar Tree where you live! Have a lovely evening, Kim

This is cute! Whenever I see that colorful duct tape I wonder what I could make with it, this is a great idea.
Thank you so much, Sarah! I just wish I could have gotten the tape to go on smooth, but I did have help from my little guy. Hae a great day, Kim

I love this! I've made pool noodle wreaths, but this looks like it might be easier, and that Duck tape is adorable. 🙂
Thank you, Dee! The pipe insulation is easier to work with than the pool noodle and it's not as thick or heavy. I love that the duck tape was only a $1 a roll…can't beat the Dollar Tree! Have a lovely day, Kim
Thank you, Jane! It was super easy and cheap to make! I would love to see a picture if you make a Wreath out of Pipe Insulation. Have a great week, Kim
