DIY Patriotic Door Rosette

Make this DIY Patriotic Door Rosette and give your front door some big July 4th spirit! At littlemisscelebration.comWith July 4th coming up, it’s definitely time for decorating with red, white and blue! Let’s display the holiday colors on our door in a big way. I’m really excited about this and just love how this turned out! With some paper in a variety of red, white and blue patterns and shades, it’s easy to make this DIY Patriotic Door Rosette. We’re giving the front door some major 4th of July presence!

This festive, layered rosette is made with 12” x 12” scrapbook paper. I did learn a lesson while making it, though! Either use all paper or all cardstock. The first one I was working on, I tried to combine cardstock and paper; the different paper weights were not gluing together smoothly. I scrapped the first try (whoops, no  pun intended!) and started again with all paper. I’ve got a little trick to give the rosette stability and make it easy to hang!

I used my Martha Stewart scoring board to score all the folds in the paper, but you don’t have to have a scoring board. You can use a metal ruler and a scoring/embossing tool to score the lines for folding. Once you start making rosettes, I have to be honest, it’s so much fun that it’s hard to stop! The scoring board is such a great tool for so many projects, you just might want to grab a 40% off coupon to Michael’s and get one.

This is made up of three different sizes of rosettes and the finished piece is about two feet wide. You need a total of twelve pieces of 12” x 12” scrapbook paper. I mixed up patterns and shades; all of the paper came from Michaels. First, I scored nine pieces of 12” x 12” paper, using the scoring board, at every ½” mark. The scoring makes fan-folding the paper a breeze! It was easier to take a photo with paper for smaller rosettes, but you at get to see the tools and scored paper. The fan folds were gathered together and stapled at the bottom.

I used clear, tacky glue to glue three pieces of stapled, folded sections together, alternating red, white and blue. Once the three sections of 3 pieces of folded paper were dry, I glued all of the sections together. It’s big and a bit unwieldy; work on a large, flat surface. I used small binder clips to the hold the sections together while the glue dried.

For the second layer of rosette, I scored two pieces of 12” x 12” paper at 1/2 “intervals. Once each piece of paper was fan-folder, I folded those pieces in half and glued the two pieces together. The third, smallest rosette was made with a 12” x 12” piece of paper cut in half, scored, fan-folded and glued together.

Once everything was dry, I used some low-temp, hot glue on the back of the big rosette to glue the center together. The two smaller rosettes were layered on the center of the big rosette and attached with hot glue.

Here’s how I made sure the rosette was stable and easy to hang! I attached the entire rosette to a flat front, 16” Styrofoam wreath form AND did it in a fast way that lets us use the wreath form again! I simply attached the rosette to the Styrofoam wreath using long straight pins. I used nine pins, pushing them into a fold of the paper and into the foam. You totally don’t see the pins and the foam can be used again! I made a hanger by twisting heavy gauge wire and inserting it into the foam, adding some glue to the wire to make certain it held.

The only thing left was to hang it on the front door! Since this is all paper, make sure you put this on a door that’s covered from the elements. We definitely don’t want our pretty, patriotic door rosette to get all wet.
