Patriotic Mantel

This is such a great time of year.  I love everything about our country, we are so blessed.  I am one of those who cries during the National Anthem.  I guess you could say I am proud to be an American and so very grateful to those who have made it possible for me to live free.  Anyway, I decided to do a Patriotic Mantel because you can leave it up from Memorial Day to just after July 24th, Pioneer Day here in Utah.  Well and maybe just all summer, why not.
So I started gathering.  I had the window pane, just spray painted it white. Had the red candles and candlestick, just added a ribbon.  I had the lantern, just added ribbon to it also.  Then I ran down to this darling store Morgan Valley Crafts  and purchased this, unfinished.

Isn't it so cute.  I did mine a little different but they are so cute.  Now, I don't do alot of crafting anymore but I stuck with this and actually enjoyed doing it. Here is mine...

Then I found this darling free printable from HMH Designs. I had this 8 x 10 frame in the closet so I just stuck it in it. But, I did back it with grey cardstock because it wasn't big enough.

Also, this free banner from At Second Street.

I used jute instead of ribbon to hang mine, only because that is what I had.  Thanks to those awesome, talented people who share their stuff for free! So here it is all finished!

Thanks for stopping by, come back soon!
