This is our first year in our new home and as the seasons come around my holiday mantels have been changing. It just seems like the previous holiday mantels that I had on my last little shelf mantle just aren’t fit for my now huge mantel. So I’ve been switching things up and my 4th of July Mantel was next on the list.
I started rummaging around my garage for items that I could use. The first thing I pulled out was this big 9 pane window. It’s big, it’s chippy, and it makes the perfect backdrop on the mantel. Then it was time to start creating some goodies for my new 4th of July Mantel.
See that USA Map Sign up there? A tutorial on the blog now!
I happened to have some cut wood blocks hanging out so I grabbed a couple and got to work. I created both of the block signs with my Silhouette. The image on the red block is a file I purchased in the sil store and the one on the blue block is my creation.
That star you see is an old plastic star from the 99cent store. I painted it off white and placed it on top of the blue block. Easy peasy right?
My 4th of July Mantel may be simple but I love it.
Have you decorated for the 4th of July yet?
Linking up to these great link parties!!!
