4th of July Wreath

Hello everyone! I have been MIA for a while due to my work schedule. I was able to get a chance to finally craft something up. July is coming next month and I have never done a 4th of July wreath. So I decided to make one. I looked to Pinterest for inspiration and came across one like this one. It was being sold on Etsy but it was too expensive for me at the moment. So I made my own wreath. I didn't want to copy the exact one that was being sold. I wanted to change it just a bit. I added the American Flag and the bow is a different color. The American flag means so much to me because 1.) I am a proud American, 2.) My husband was in the military, and 3.) I was a proud military wife. Even though he is no longer in the military I honor every soldier that put their lives in danger to keep our country safe as well as those that lost their lives in battle. They are all my Hero's and I respect what they do for our country. I was actually able to put my wreath up for Memorial Day to honor those who lost their lives in battle. My husband really liked it and told me I should put it up so I did. It will go back on on July to honor all those soldiers who have served and are currently serving. Everything I used was bought at Hobby Lobby except for the starry burlap and the flag. Here how my wreath turned out.

I didn't think the USA letters were going to hold well but they did pretty good. I hot glued the letters together and then glued it to the wreath.

So that is my 4th of July wreath! Hope you like. Have a nice day!
