Looking for a way to add 4th of July decor that pops? Try this DIY firework door hanger! This project has plenty of layering and pizazz with opportunities for making it your own.
This firework door hanger started as part of a challenge to make firework-themed crafts with a group of fellow crafters, and it turned into one of my favorite 4th of July decor! Dare I say it, y’all…this project is explosive. 😉

This is definitely one of those projects you have to watch to get, so I made y’all a video to follow along with me. If you’ve been hanging onto your red, white, and blue ribbons, now’s the time to use them!
This firework wreath starts with a bow, but not just any bow. It’s a bow of bows! I also highly recommend that you choose extra sparkly ribbon to give that festive feeling.
How to Make a Patriotic Terri Bow using the Pro Bow
- Sort out what ribbons you will be using. Measure out 4 pieces of floral wire about 24-inches each. Cut the floral wire with your wire cutters.
- Let's start with our first ribbon. Measure out about 7-inches for the tail. Take a wire and fold it in half, give it a pinch around the ribbon, and we're going to tie it off. Wrap the ribbon around your center peg. Pinch on the bottom peg, twist, and tie it off on the top.
- Now that you have your center loop, you'll need to add your second wire. Fold the wire in half and work it through.
- Take your 1.5" ribbon, trim into a dovetail, Measure out about 7-inches for the tail. Take a wire and fold it in half, give it a pinch around the ribbon, and we're going to tie if off. Wrap the ribbon around the next peg. Pinch on the bottom peg, twist, and loop on the other side. Cut the dovetail. Tie off with the wire.
- Repeat the step above until all the pegs are used working your way outwards from the center peg starting with your 1.5" ribbon and ending with your 4" ribbon. Once you're done, tie off, unwrap the first wire from the top and bottom from when you first started. Take off your bow from the Pro Bow.
- Take your fluff box, place the bow in the center and wrap the wires on the side hooks to keep it in place. Fluff out your bow, start with the outside and work your way to the center.
How to Make a Fireworks Door Hanger
- Get your wreath sign, picks, and zip ties. Have some picks facing upwards and some facing downwards. Use zip tie to attach to sign in the center. Be sure to trim the stems.
- Take terri bow and add to center on top of the picks. Use floral wired on back of bow to tie off in the back of the sign.
- Spread out the picks on the top, so that it's not so clustered. Bend some forward to add dimension.
- Spread out the picks on the bottom, so that it's not so clustered. Bend some forward to add dimension.
- Gather the ribbon used to make the bow. Cut long tails. Scrunch all at the top and use a zip tie to keep it together. Take another zip tie and attach to the bottom of the bow. Spread out the ribbon tails. Use a roller to curl the tails.
- Add another pick with the stem trimmed to the top of the door hanger. Use a zip tie and attach it to the center of the sign behind the bow. Bend some forward and spread out
