4th of July Tinsel Wreath (Last Minute Decorations)
This is, hands down, the easiest wreath to make. I don't have step-by-step photos, but if you have a wreath form, you just tack one end of your tinsel garland down with a flat thumbtack or pin and wind it around and around the form until the whole thing is covered! If you have a metal front door like I do, then you can follow my tutorial for how to hang a wreath on a metal door. Easy peasy:
As for the rest of the yard...I didn't have a lot to spend. We still have mulching to do, and one of the azaleas in my front flower bed died (boo!), so there's a blank spot where it should be. But I like the little pops of color that I added with some flags and some pretty flowers. I had to remove the vinyl "welcome" on the door because it was peeling badly, and someday (!) I will have black shutters rather than green. A girl can dream, right?
Pretty flowers and flags!
And that's pretty much it so far. Like I said, we need to mulch, and I have some solar lights I want to put up, but this is it for now. It's not too late to put some cute stuff out for the holiday!
Do you decorate for the 4th of July?
