One of my favorite things about summer is all of the red, white, and blue that appears! I think it is important to celebrate America and commemorate those who selflessly gave their lives for our freedom that I know I often take for granted.
To help celebrate Memorial Day I put up a rustic patriotic wreath on my front door and plan to keep it up through Flag Day in June and July 4th.
The wreath form is still the same grapevine wreath that I used to make my glitter initial wreath in January and my Easter egg wreath in March. I love making new wreaths, but don’t like to spend a bunch of money on new wreath forms or the supplies to make them. When putting a new wreath together, I always shop my house to create the wreath.
This old flag was left by the previous homeowners. I thought the worn, stained look was kind of fun, so I kept it. Since it is so worn and stained, I decided to call it rustic! The red and white twine came from Dollar Tree last year.
I didn’t use any hot glue on the wreath just like with the initial wreath and Easter wreath. I simply tied the twine to the grapevine branches and used a clothespin on the back to keep it all in place. I love that this didn’t cost me a penny since I was able to use and reuse items I already had.
