4th of July Mantle 2014

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. 

Some of the elements are from last years mantle. A few new ideas & some old ones mashed up together. Cheap & easy!  

Now I have to decide if I'm ok leaving up patriotic decor out until fall or do I set something for late summer?
