It’s time to display our red, white, and blue!
Stars and stripes!
Buntings, banners, garlands, wreaths, and….
It’s time to get in the spirit of the holiday!
Here’s a simple, but festive way to….
Decorate a Vintage Window
with a Patriotic Wreath and Garland for the 4th of July
This garland might look a little bit familiar. I made a similar more simple star garland for my sunroom, which is all decked out for the Fourth of July! A handful of stars were left over from that project…just enough to create a garland for the vintage window that you’ve also seen here and here. It was super easy to create. I just hot glued the stars on a strand of jute. This one was a wee bit more effort.
To add a little pizzazz, I cut my stars and stripes ribbon, into strips. It was super easy to do and gave me a few more options to play with. I’ll be putting together a tutorial, but in the meantime, I thought it would help to see the ribbon source for the stars and stripes. I tried to find the ribbon online, but I only found what appears to be wired version. It just may be a little late, but then again, check your craft store, they just might have this or something equally as fun.
Does the wreath look a bit familiar? It’s a new and improved version of this one. Actually, I can’t say that it is improved as I liked that one quite a bit. But, this one has the pleated ribbon rosette embellishing it which I think is perfect for the Fourth of July! Again, the ribbon was cut so that only the blue field of stars is dressing up this wreath.
Be watching for a tutorial of the rosette also. I discovered an easy way to make ribbon rosettes and they make quite a statement.
What do you think of my Patriotic Vintage Window?
I mostly had fun crafting this project.
Have you ever had a plan and then you second guessed yourself and got started on a ‘better’ version of your original idea?
Um. That is what I did.
Here’s a glimpse at my “Fail.”
And the mess I created.
My dining table was covered with all the stuff from the project. What a disaster zone! Fortunately it only took me about 15 minutes to pick it up and get everything put away.
And one more view of the finally finished window.
Who knew a gal could have so much fun with a vintage window? I really enjoy decorating her for the holidays.
She makes me smile…all dressed up with a Patriotic Wreath and Garland for the 4th of July.
What have you done or will you do to celebrate the Fourth?
Wishing you an Extraordinary Fourth of July Celebration!
