Yep, today you don’t get one but TWO patriotic crafts! They’re both very simple and took me less than the a few hours to complete both.
A very simple Patriotic Wreath. I actually had an inspiration photo in my files for along time. Since blogging I try to save the website with the photo so that I can give credit to the source but because I have had this in my files for so long I not sure where to give credit. Sorry
The wreath is so simple I think that’s why I love it so much. Plus, my house sits about 800 feet from the road so most wreaths that I hang on my front door just look like dark blobs but not this one! It just pops out and screams
“I’m Proud to be an American!”
I started with a blank wreath-form bought many years ago, I believe, from the Dollar Store. About 6 years ago, a Dollar Store opened up in my town. Less than two years later it closed. Have you ever know a Dollar Store to close it’s door? Needless to say, I have not been to a Dollar Store in years.
Next, I cut up one floral foam into several pieces and held it to the frame with floral wire.
I guess I got a little excited working on this project because I forgot to take some photographs. Here is what I did- I cut 3”x3” squares out of red felt and used hot glue and a crochet hook to poke the center of the felt square into the floral foam.
Added a blue ribbon and white star and called it finished!
The blue ribbon came off a fleece blanket that I purchased years ago! It had Velcro on the ends making it so easy to make a loop! Can you tell I try to not let anything go to waste?
I love this wreath! It didn’t dawn on me until I was actually hanging the wreath that I could use this over again for Christmas and Valentine’s Day!
Patriotic Vinyl Wooden Blocks
I cut up some left over 1x4 boards into three blocks, routered the edges with a round-over bit, painted the blocks, distressed the edges, and cut some vinyl on the Cricut machine. I found this font by Googling “Patriotic Fonts”.
I just love quick and an easy projects!
