I love this time of year. I love decorating with red, white, and blue. I love feeling patriotic and surrounding myself with reminders of this wonderful country I live in. And another thing I really love is making projects using things I already have so I don’t have to spend any money. I used red and blue scrapbook paper and a frame I already had in my stash.
I cut out the stars using my Cricut and the Home Decor cartridge. I cut them out at 2 1/4″ and laid them out on a white piece of cardstock cut to fit the 8″x8″ frame.
Once I had the placement correct I adhered the stars to the cardstock using double sided tape.
Then I just placed it in the frame. It reminds me of a quilt piece.
I decorated the entry shelf in a patriotic theme.
Using more red, white, and blue ticket stubs placed in a glass jar.
And the pinwheels I made last year in another glass jar. I bought the boat at a consignment shop last year.
How do you decorate for this time of year?
