Yankee Doodle Decor

July 4th chalk art

Yankee Doodle is on his way and for once I did a little decorating. The 4th is usually here and gone by the time I come up with any patriotic decor, but not this year. This year I actually got my front entry “holiday closet” decked out in some red, white and blue. I started by changing my revolving chalkboard to a July 4th design.

I then printed out my “Oh say” printable (the one I posted earlier this week) and put it in a funky frame I bought at Hobby Lobby last December, but first I gave it a coat of bright, red glossy paint (hey, red will work at Christmas time as well).

I bought some Mason Jars a few weeks back with plans of painting them. Pinterest is jam packed with painted mason jars so I decided to give it a try. I had bought silver metallic spray paint for an earlier project and luckily it adhered to glass. Bada bing, bada boom. I popped some American flags inside the jar.

I then gathered up some patriotic odds and ends from around the house. I found the three red, white and blue striped horns at a tiny antique shop in Georgetown, Texas, I wish I had bought more. The square glass container is holding yarn spools. The red ones actually have gold stars on them. They were the only things I could afford at the Round Top Antique Show in Texas several years back. They work pretty well as Halloween decor also.

I have a feeling this will probably stay up for the rest of the summer. I’m sure I’ll be to lazy to change it so I guess it will be a patriotic couple of months.
