Only a few more weeks till Summer is in full swing, and you’re grilling burgers on the BBQ in celebration of the 4th of July. If you’re having guests over and just want to create a festive atmosphere, or if you’re like me and are patriotic through and through (you know who you are if you always cry during the National Anthem!) you are going to love all the fun things you can make with the new (new in the store that is) Vintage Patriotic Banner Kit.
Although you get all the ingredients you need to make the most amazing banner ever, you can also take those kit components and make a great home decor piece! Can you guess what the base of this wall hanging is? Yep-a vintage slide projector wheel! A great new alterable now in the shop! To begin, I first adhered ivory tissue paper garland around the wheel with a glue gun. Then, I cut down one of the vintage flash cards to create a sturdy surface to adhere all of the embellies onto. A vintage red crepe ruffle trim dresses it up a bit. The vintage reflectors look great layered together with a silver bulb in the center. Red ribbon layered onto a vintage game card make the unique tails and foil flourish stickers complete the look.
The title of the vintage book paper is just great as is, so I adhered that onto a tag, and added a foil sticker and gem brads. That fun bunch of blue tinsel can also be found in the store and makes a great patriotic accent! The vintage flag finishes it off.
I think I’ll put this by the front door to really set the patriotic mood for our BBQ this year. And, I still have many fun goodies in the kit to actually make a banner!
Have a wonderful weekend!
