Fourth of July Door Decor

I’ve said this before, but, I love having a front door decoration and I don’t have one for the Fourth of July. I went to Michael’s Craft Store to see what I could come up with that would be fairly inexpensive.

P1010171 Almost everything was on sale so I got all of this stuff for about $20. An antique looking flower tin, red and blue flowers, three little beaded decorations, two little flags, and red, white and blue ribbon.

P1010172 P1010174 I don’t know what these little decorations are called but I just loved they way they look. I bought one and pulled it apart into three stems.

P1010176 Then I used a pair of my husband’s wire cutters to cut the flowers apart. (I only bought one stem of each color)

P1010179 I rumpled up old newspaper to fill the inside of the tin and added the flowers and bead decorations. I wasn’t going to any particular look, so I just placed things here and there and until I got the look I wanted, and then added a flag to each side.

To get the ribbons to stick to the tin I used a Xyron 150 sticker maker.

That was pretty tricky because the ribbon is really thin and flimsy but it worked out great. I used the permanent adhesive, which is really sticky. Lastly I tied a bow around the top with all three ribbons. I’m really happy with the way it turned out.
