Star Spangled Door Decor

I love holidays, and if you remember from THIS post, I always decorate my door for the coordinating holiday.  July's door decoration has been in the works for a while.  I gathered the supplies during three different trips to the thrift store.

I picked the wreath up first, with every intention of using it for something else. On the next trip I picked up that little bag of stars, and on the third trip I picked up the star pick and the flag. Once I had everything I had an idea!

And the best part of this project

 A whopping $. 95Yes, $ .95! Whoo-hoo! :)  I love thrifting!

When I bought the bag of stars I thought I would just hot glue them on the wreath, but when I took them out of the bag I found they all were on little wires. Perfect!

I was also excited to learn that the white stars have a touch of glitter on them, and if you know me, you know I love glitter! :) If you don't know me, now you know I love glitter! :)

So, it wasn't until I was done that I realized I didn't take any pictures of the next part...., and you probably don't need me to explain ( but I will anyway) that I arranged the stars on the wreath the way I wanted them, lopped the stick off the star pick and used the wire hanger at the top to attach it, added the American flag, and hung it on my door!

Now my door is properly patriotic and ready for the 4th!

I hope you have a wonderful and safe 4th of July!
God Bless America!
