I really wish I could start this post out with a Patriotic Toby Keith song playing in the back-ground, but I have no idea how to make that happen…so just pretend k? Only kidding! It was time to take down my spring wreath (the cherry blossom and fuschia burlap one) and get something up for this summer. I don’t currently have the time to make a new wreath for every single holiday (plus that’s kinda wasteful if you do a new one every holiday, every year), so I’ve been trying to do them seasonally. I think that having a Patriotic wreath is a perfect choice for a summer wreath. That is because there is a Patriotic Holiday in May, July, and September. Which means that this thing is going to be staying on my door until the week of Labor Day…just in time for a wreath for my favorite season FALL, YAY! Anyway, I got my inspiration for this wreath from this darling mason jar decor idea (it’s super cute so make sure to check it out).
I think it turned out pretty close to what I was shooting for. I really wish that the Joann’s out here had a better selection, but I did the best I could with my, small town, limited options. I saved money on this project by using a couple of coupons, but it was still quite a bit pricier than it needed to be since I was experimenting and wasn’t sure how much I would need of all the materials. I will try to list how much of each thing I used so that if you’d like to make one too, you won’t be buying way too much. Below is a basic tutorial, so for those of you that need it, make sure to keep reading.
