I've been getting a little crafty this week for the Fourth of July. All my project were super simple and quick to finish, which is perfect for me with the kids underfoot all day long.
The first project inculded two oversized frames, white poster board and red scrapbook paper.
I simply cut the posterboard to fit the frame. Next I cut out six star from a textured scrapbook paper. After simply linning up three stars and gluing them onto the posterboard I had a quick and easy accent for the living room walls. I placed one frame on either side of the large window and I just love the graphic punch!
The next project took a little longer to complete but it was worth it. A simple scrap of 1X12 lumber and some paint produced a new sign to hang up.
Fourth of July always seems to have me humming the "Hail to the Chief" song so I thought a quick printout would be fun. The kids keep telling me it says Hail to the Chef - - works for me, LOL.
You can't get more simple than framing a small flag. I picked up a four pack of tiny flags at Target, simply removed the flag from the stick and slapped it in a frame. The red star was also a quick project. The stars were purchased unpainted at micheal's. I simple gave them a quick coat of red spray paint.
And last of all, on a recent shopping trip I found this adorable garden gate. It was unfinished so I quickly gave it a little red paint and then distressed it. Maybe it's not really a Fourth of July decoration but since it's red I'm saying it is, LOL!
I have a few other things I may get done before the fourth but I'm in no rush to get started on them. It's just too hot here in Minnesota to rush around to do anything.
How about you? Any crafting going on at your house?
Talk to you soon,
