I’m so excited for my favorite holiday (it’s tied with Christmas) and can’t wait to see all the red, white, and blue popping up everywhere. I love Independence Day! Give me parades, fireworks, and goosebumps during our national anthem and I am one happy girl. I’m getting in the patriotic spirit around our house by changing out my holiday shelf to reflect my American pride.
It’s a pretty simple array of some old books, candles wrapped in twine, a lantern, and two mason jar flower arrangements. I happened to have a red “S” for our last name and it works on the shelf, but I’d really love to find a “U” and an “A” to add as well. I also used the banner that was already hanging up from my Nautical Summer Shelf, and just changed out the teal colors for red and white.
The flower arrangements were really easy to make. I found a package of 3 flags for $1 at the dollar spot in Target and the white flowers are from the Dollar Tree. They look perfect in a mason jar with some brown paper shred.
I created two prints to put in the frames underneath but alas, my printer ran out of ink just when I went to print them out! I had some cute scrapbook paper on hand though and it works just great. But thanks to the magic of Photoshop here is how it would have looked:
Hope these help you get in the independence day spirit!
