I have this really fun metal cutout of the United States that makes the cutest accent piece. I layered dry beans in jars to mimic the stars and stripes of a flag. It’s unique and super cheap to create. Buy the beans in bulk at your local grocery store and reuse them year after year!
See the stars and stripes?
I have tons of fabric scraps laying around, so I dug through my burlap stash and created this! I used the cardboard baking to this old frame and covered it with a piece of burlap, securing it with hot glue. Then I cut strips and a rectangle. I painted the strips with red craft paint and the rectangle with blue, using a foam disposable brush. Once dry, I used hot glue to attach them making the flag pattern. To finish it off, I hot glued tiny white buttons on to represent stars. It only has 35 “stars” on it but hey, it looks uniform and who’s counting?! I put the burlap covered cardboard back into the frame and leaned it on an old chair I have on the porch. Very easy and only took about an hour to make with drying time and all.
This neutral burlap wreath is great for any season. It can be plain or embellished depending on the holiday or mood. I used a paper circle fan, a linen rosette and a navy blue and white star bow to turn this wreath from plain to patriotic! These embellishments are just pinned onto the wreath using safety pins. That way they can easily be removed without damaging the wreath.
These are just a few simple touches you can add to your home to celebrate our great nation!
Have a safe and happy 4th!
