Bandana Fourth of July Mantel

We are pulling out the red, white and blue over here!
 Have you started your Fourth of July decorating yet? We made it fairly simple this year by using everything we had and could print for free, and did not buy one new....anything... for the red, white and blue decorating. Now that is something to celebrate!

 You may recall our Bandana Rag Wreath post we did a while back. We wanted to use bandana print in our Fourth of July decorating and this wreath is just perfect to use in a new way. For so long now it has hung on a kitchen door.

Turning our bandana wreath into a Fourth of July decoration was easy to do by just adding a flag...... and.......

                                                                                                                    A wire star garland.

                                                                Now our wreath is Fourth of July festive!

A  free patriotic printable from HWTM in a simple black frame with a little wire star garland and bandana strips adds to the festive celebration. 

Moving on to our bandana can vases. We simply cut to fit around three cans a bandana and hot glued it onto the cans. Added some garden flowers and an American flag and done!

How will you be decorating with red, white and blue this Fourth?

                                                                                     We hope we have inspired you!

I will praise the Lord according to His righteousness,
And will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High.

Psalm 7:17
