The amazing thing about designing patriotic holiday décor is that there’s holiday throughout the year. Even though we just passed 4th of July, we still have Veterans Day in November.

So that also means if you see any post 4th of July clearance items at the craft store, make sure to snag them because they’ll also work for Christmas decorations too.

DIY Firework Pancake Wreath for Patriotic Holiday Décor

This design is slightly different than the other 10″ pancake wreath we released earlier this week. It’s easy to see how you can make a minor change to create an entirely different look.

Notice in the design above the ribbon tail and mesh stick out a little further making the wreath wider, but not fuller. When using a larger attachment this recipe works best.
