Patriotic Wall Art

Another Father’s Day has come and gone and now my thoughts are turning towards July 4th.  I have such good memories of this holiday growing up.  I have a very large extended family and we would gather every year and have a huge cookout with tons of food, friends, and good times.  I hope my kids will be able to look back on their July 4th holidays and be able to feel the same way.
To help set the mood, I am putting up this framed patriotic wall art.  I love the wavy stripes with the classic stars.  There is a little secret to my festive display though.  I’m sure you are wondering how I made it.  Vinyl?  Mod Podge and scrapbook paper?  I must confess.  The secret behind my frame is...

A $1 Walmart Bandana

Yep, that’s it.  A bandana.  Like a biker would wear.  In a frame.  Held on with duct tape, no less. 

I wish I could say that this project required a lot of skill, dexterity, and artistic ability.  Or at least a little class. 

Oh, well.  It’s still cute.
