Patriotic Chalkboard Wreath

In just a few days, Rusty and I will be celebrating our 10 year date-a-versary.  10 years ago, we were feeling that rush of excitement as we made our commute to work where we would get to see each other for an 8-10 hour shift.  After a few months of practically being inseparable, we sat down and backdated a date we felt like we became a couple.  That date fell on the 4th of July where we went to a pool party and stayed up until 4 a.m. sitting in my Escort parked in his driveway just talking and falling in love (kisses came MANY months - ok, let’s get real – weeks - maybe I’m just being modest – days later and have never stopped…seriously, I force him to make out with me every day for an uninterrupted amount of time.)

Skip ahead – isn’t this a home décor blog?!

The 4th of July is my FAVORITE holiday!!!  I bleed red, white and blue, so, of course, a wreath was a must for my front porch.  Here are a few picture of something I threw together today to make our front porch extra special for the 4th.

The supplies I used were:
  • Grapevine Wreath (on hand)
  • A 2-pack of American Flags removed from the posts
  • Red ribbon (on hand)
  • Assorted Wooden Stars
  • Chalkboard Paint (on hand)

I am trying to think of other sayings to put in the stars.  2012.  Free.  What else?

Here you can see where I just used some hemp string to tie the flags on.  I have the option of reusing this grapevine wreath, but this one is so cute I think it will be permanent!
