Independence Day Wall Decor

The biggest holiday of the summer is just around the corner and I for one love Independence Day!  The family gatherings, the food and the fireworks!  It’s just a fun day of celebrating!  I love patriotic decor; unfortunately Mr. Manly Man does not.  A red, white and blue living room is not his cup of tea bottle of beer.  Good thing he’s okay with a little wall decor.

Here is what I used:




Wooden Frames
Fabric
 Wooden Letters
 Paint
 Mod Podge
Hot Glue


How I made it:


I started by painting the letters Old White. 




While they dried, I decoupaged the fabric to the picture frame glass.  When dry I trimmed off the excess fabric.




Then I put the glass back in the frames and hot glued the letters to the glass. The "U" frame is my favorite.  A little measuring and a couple of nails in the wall and here's what I ended up with. 

Easy, inexpensive and it looks great!




So there you have it – a simple Independence Day Craft.
