Patriotic crafts

 Back when I posted my seasonal shelves I mentioned that I had added two things after I took the pictures. Today I have those two craft projects to show you.

This first one I actually started last year and never finished. This was a plain wood star that I covered in fabric and then I glued it to a wood crate that I painted red and white. I finished it off by adding some patriotic flowers and picks. The star and the crate were both Dollar Tree items and the flowers and picks were from Walmart.


This one used a Dollar Tree chalk board. I painted it black and then on the backside I glued on some scrapbook paper. Then I used the scrabble tiles (can't remember where I found these) and spelled out home of the brave and glued the letter on. I left the chalkboard side alone that way if I wanted to I could turn it around and write a message on the chalkboard as well.

They are really cute and nowyou are ready for the 4th of July.. and I like the idea of chalk board, for messages... would have been handing when I was working to leave reminders on for bob to do list. way back 18 years ago. I can't believe I have been retired that long and bob retired for 26 years. OUCH!
