This wreath was snagged second hand store for $1 and covered in not so pretty bright bright flowers that went ahead and removed.
I picked through my collection of "fake" flowers that I pick up at 2nd hand stores, garage sales and after season sales, and decided on some white, red and pale blue blooms.
I then rummaged through my fabric collection and tore a piece of checked blue fabric into a strip, then tied it into a simple bow.
Before gluing, it's a good idea to arrange the flowers and move them around until you like where they lay. Then hot-glued them (or wire them) into place. They can easily be peeled off when you want to change things up.
The little plaque was purchased at JoAnne Fabrics for 50% off, and wired it in place.
Voila! Instand door charm.
How about you? Do you decorate for Independence Day? I'd love to see what you do, share a link in the comments!
