Happy Summer Everyone!
I haven’t collected a lot of 4th of July decor items throughout my life. I mainly decorate with item I already have that are red, white, and blue. Throw a few flags in and I’m done decorating. This year I thought I would take it a bit further and make this:
I had some old rulers I found at a thrift shop and formed them into a star and glued it together with E6000.
I purchased an 11″x14″ framed canvas from JoAnn’s for 50% off and used some pieces of fabric I already had.
I’ve been collecting Scrabble pieces so I pulled some of those out to spell “Freedom”. You could use any type of alphabet including chipboard letters, blocks, or stickers and spell anything you want.
I also tea dyed the fabric to look a little aged (I just like that look) and let it dry. I wrapped the red polka dot fabric around the canvas and stapled it into place on the back.
Then I glued the blue denim and the burlap into place.
Then all I had to do was attach the flag and the tiles and it’s done. It was so fun and easy to make.
If you’re looking for some food ideas for the 4th I been planning my menu. You can see my samples here:
There are three different posts with links to the others menu ideas in each post.
Also, look at this cute wood and glass vase centerpiece. Story and directions on the blog, too.
