Hello everyone! Do you love Independence Day as much as I do? It’s one of my favorite holidays and this year, like last (yay), I’m part of the ULTIMATE Red White and Blue Roundup {Abbey from The Cards We Drew puts this hop all together…thanks Abbey!) and it’s a great resource for ideas galore including crafts, decor, recipes and more!

Ultimate Red White and Blue Roundup at cupcakesandcrinoline.com

This years roundup is below but first I want to share what I made.  It’s an easy-to-make Banner/Door Decor that takes about 10 to 15 minutes to put together and costs around $20.00.

Rustic Americana Door Decor

I found a Canvas Flag banner,  some rustic bells, a grapevine wreath and battery operated light up stars at a local craft store.  That was my inspiration for this banner.  I wound the bells around the grapevine wreath, added the lights and then hung both on my front door.  When all was said and done I ended up switching things a bit ~ the center of the grapevine wreath needed “something”.

Since I didn’t buy anything to go in the center I went shopping around my house and grabbed the chalkboard platter (made for $1.00) from my bathroom, changed the wording to Welcome (I’m planning to change it again for the 4th of July) and placed that in the middle of the wreath

….it was exactly what I needed.

I also added some smaller flags to each side of the chalkboard platter on the back – I used duct tape 😉 to secure those.

And a few years ago I used that same Dollar Store platter that’s part of the door decor above to make this cute Washi Tape Flag ~ don’t you just love something that you can use over and over again?
