DIY Patriotic Decor
Every once in a while, I feel compelled to purge my scrap wood pile. I don’t necessarily mean throw it to the curb because heck, that is where I got most of it from! I mean that I create items trying to only utilize scraps that either I found curbside or scrap material that was leftover from materials I purchased but kept the remnants of. I joke that I worry about being served divorce papers when my scrap pile gets too big. I am a self-proclaimed problematic wood hoarder. I always see a project in a piece of good wood.
Typically this purge/creation happens near a holiday. I love to decorate for a holiday but, hate to spend too much of my money on the decor prices that you see in stores. I am able to create items for literally pennies!
In one day, I was able to make these four items for my 4th of July decorating needs. They are all basic decor items but, when they are combined into a display, they will add just the right amount of patriotic punch that I want them too!
Here are a few of the items that I decided I needed at our mobile home lake cottage. The ledge of my entry just needed a little bit of patriotic spirit!
