America Theme

It's almost time to celebrate the 4th of July.  Where we live, it's a big deal.  The small town has quite a bit to do & see.  Having so many festivities nearby (1/2 mile) inspires me to decorate more, with flags & such.  I'll share with you some of my "junk" ideas.

Folding measure tape, commonly found for around $4....

I used a little Loc Tite to keep the shape from moving.
Wah-lah, a star.


How about a patriotic platter...turned into a decorative garden stake?

I only paid a dollar at the thrift store.
I love it!


New life for an ugly old brown frame,
filled with pressed flower.

If you have a Cricut paper cutting machine,
anything is possible!

I made this!
The Cricut cartridge was Stand & Salute.
I painted the frame white & sanded it a bit.
