Freedom! {4th of July Decor}

It was for freedom that Christ set us free; 
therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.  
Galatians 5:1

Since the 4th of July is just around the corner I took some time yesterday to update our front door to honor the upcoming birthday celebration of our country.  Lucky for me I usually have lots of leftover crafting items, so the cost breakdown of this little project was only $5!...$2 for the wreath, $2 for the wreath hanger and $1 for the little flags.  I had the rest of the items already!

The FREEDOM banner was made using some cut up pieces of an old pair of blue jeans, some white cotton fabric I had on hand, painted with some leftover red craft paint.  I hot glued my bunting to some jute upholstery webbing.  

For the wreath I just wrapped some American flag ribbon I've had for just ages around the wreath and hot glued it to secure it to the wreath.  A simple bow made from upholstery webbing and two small American flags complete this simple wreath.  

Not bad for 5 bucks, huh?!

  1. Cute patriotic decor! Your front door looks so pretty decked up in red, white and blue:)Love the jute webbing used as a bow and that's very clever using blue jeans for the banner, very creatively done. Happy 4th!
