July 4th, it's right around the corner. Here's a fun way to add some red, white, and blue to your decor.
I started with some patriotic looking scrapbook paper and some flower stickers.
You will need to cut the striped paper in half.
If you have a paper cutter, it works perfect for this.
Fold the paper back and forth, accordion style.
Pinch and tape the middle like this.
Now, hot glue each side together.
It should look like this. Tip- glue the edges first, then glue towards the middle. This helps to line up the outside edge.
Find something and trace some circles. The circles looked boring to me so I added some cuts to the sides to add some texture.
Now, find something bigger and cut some bigger circles.
I used burlap because... I have this thing for burlap.
Cut out some little squares. Trust me, it will all make sense in the end. Don't you wish everything was like that?
Here is the fun part. Layer and glue the pieces together.
I used hot glue. I don't know why, but this just makes me happy.
I made 7 of these, added twine to the back and hung it across the doorway between the dining room and the living room.
A little red, white and blue (and burlap) is a good thing!
