{Craft} 4th July Wreath

This wreath I created three years ago has been one of the most popular posts on the blog so I have decided to re-post the tutorial to help with the many questions I am currently getting :)
The original tutorial can be found on Catch My Party.

It's a super easy project. Enjoy!

The paper stars are really easy to make and here is a tutorial to re-create the wreath.

Wreath (I used a wire wreath but took out the inner and outer rings to make it thinner)
Red, white, blue card stock (I found the lovely blue one at Michael's)
Star template you can download here
Hot glue gun
Optional: A scorer for easier folding
Optional: Distress Ink (I used the color Frayed Burlap)

Use the template to cutout stars in three different sizes
For each star, score from one point to opposite inner angle like shown by the line.
Repeat for all 5 points.
Fold on every line.
Pinch each point to get the 3D effect (it helps to pinch the points two by two)

If you wish to distress the stars, simply use a small sponge or applicator to apply the Distress Ink. I started by making the fold lines dark and then applied some lighter stains in between the points.

Once you have a selection of stars ready, you can hot glue them to the wire frame. Use a ribbon to hang (I used red burlap).
