I know I'm behind in posting this, but frankly, I'm just glad I actually remembered to take pictures. 😉
I set my patriotic mantle up just before Memorial Day. I got it finalized the week before July 4th. By finalized, I mean 99% done because I never got anything printed off to put in the frame. Gah! My life is always a work in progress. Ha.
Some close ups...
I found this tiered stand at a garage sale!
I had some leftover red burlap from my new front door wreath that I added to my twig wreath that I use for MANY seasons.
I tried really hard to use elements that I already had in the house (other than the 3-tiered stand)
Obviously we don't play much poker, since no one noticed these were gone.
I did manage to make a new wreath for the front door. It was simple & easy.
I found the red & blue burlap at Walmart and just couldn't resist.
Now I have to decide if I'm ok leaving up patriotic decor out until fall or do I set something for late summer?
