I no longer have little ones in our home, so any of the cute craft projects, much less any patriotic craft project, I want to do, I have to do them on my own anymore! Having boys also eliminates the desire to do any type of craft project anymore. They did them all of the time with me when they were younger, but now, pfft, it's like pulling teeth.
Recently, I've been honoring my mom a lot on our front porch. We've been decorating it in red, white, and blue, not just because we live in America and the Fourth of July is coming up soon, but because my mom was born on July 4th and I want to give a little nod to her memory. She always decorated the outside of her home with tons of Americana decorations. When she passed away I inherited a lot of her belongings and the family went to my brother and his growing family.
I've been getting a real kick out of crafting lately though. I've been putting a lot of flower projects together. A friend of mine AnnMarie really inspired me to do more craft projects lately with her beautiful umbrella flower front door wreath. I created a different variation using boots, but pretty much followed the same steps she did. So head over and check her project out. The only thing I did differently, was that I had to use zip ties to keep the boots together since E6000 & hot glue didn't work and I used flower wire for a hanger.
I'm currently working on restoring a 1975 camper, turning a vintage vanity into 2 bedside tables, updating our firepit seating area with pallets, and probably about 100 other projects. My husband says I need to stop adding projects until I finish the ones I have going on right now, but I say as long as we have projects to do, we'll never be bored, right?
This project is the cutest project that is so easy to do. If you don't have little ones, you could EASILY do this yourself for outdoor decorations or even on the picnic table during your patriotic festivities.
