Can you believe the 4th of July is just around the corner? I love that so many friends in so many neighborhoods continue to make Independence Day a small-town celebration of freedom and everything that America stands for.
This year I wanted to put together an Americana-type wreath on the front door, but as usual I tend to have more ideas than I do time. So rather than forgo the idea completely, I opted to put a wreath together from some pre-made pieces. All were found at Kohl’s, on sale of course!
I picked up a vine wreath with red, white and blue berry picks already wired in place, a hanging plaque, and 2 metal stars. I separated the berry picks to make the wreath look fuller, then wired the plaque and the stars into place. Easy peasy!
What do you think? It doesn’t have to be a hand-crafted work of art to be fun and pretty. A little bit of creativity can turn a few mass-produced items into a unique piece that reflects your own style!
