Canada Day Crafts | DIY Canada Day Wreath in Red and White | There for the Making | The Zero-Dollar DIY Challenge

Who here loves a good craft? *raises own hand* Who here loves a good craft that celebrates your national holiday? *raises both hands* Who here loves a good craft that celebrates your national holiday and costs ZERO DOLLARS? *raises both hands and feet* For the June edition of There for the Making – the Zero-Dollar DIY Challenge, I used items I already had in my craft stash to create a simple, cheerful Canada Day wreath in red and white for our front door. I remember making Canada Day crafts back when I was little (crafting has always been a part of my life), so I feel like I’m getting in touch with my roots with this project.

In case you’ve missed the memo (or if you lives elsewhere than Canada!), we’re celebrating our country’s 150th birthday on July 1st! Naturally, this is a cause for much hoopla and general celebration, and it means that the July 1st excitement is getting extended ALL YEAR! I thought it would be nice to display our Canadian pride with a fun, whimsical wreath.
