Make this DIY Americana Scarf Wreath in under fifteen minutes using the top of a Dollar Tree (round) plastic laundry basket and a few red, white, and blue scarves.

All of the supplies for this DIY came from Dollar Tree except for the blue check pattern infinity scarf which I bought at Target.

I love how this wreath came out and I’m ready for the 4th of July! Below are all the details on how to make one.

How to make a DIY Americana Scarf Wreath

Cutting the top of a round plastic dollar store laundry basket with scissors to use as a wreath base
Start by cutting the handle top off of a dollar store laundry basket. This will be your wreath base.


Don’t throw the rest of that basket away!

Open up an infinity scarf and wrap it around the plastic laundry basket handle to cover.

Next, wrap infinity scarves around the wreath form until completely covered.

It took three red infinity scarves to completely cover the wreath ring and I used safety pins at the back of the wreath to keep the scarves in place. I did not cut the infinity scarves. I wanted my wreath to have a little bulk to it, but that is an option.

Then, I wrapped my one blue check-patterned scarf loosely around the wreath and secure it with safety pins at the back of the wreath as well.

To finish my DIY Americana Scarf Wreath, I decided to add a few more Patriotic touches. I used red raffia to hang a blue glitter star (also from DT) at the center and I made a bow out of another red infinity scarf.
