4th of July Display

I am a little slow, but I finally took down my spring display (we had such a short spring here in ND.)  I want to show you my 4th of July display.  Actually this display stays up the entire month of July because I love the USA and red, white and blue.

The angel candlesticks were found at a garage sale.  The metal stars and the star box were found at Real Deals last year.  The candle wrap was a printable from Poppies at Play.  There were a few different wraps from which to choose.  I printed mine at 7×5 and wrapped a white candle; so simple.  Go here is you want to get these printables and check out the rest of the blog.  Some great inspiration abounds.

In the above close up, you can see the plaque a little better.  One of the many blogs I follow is Just Another Hang Up.  Every month since last September Suzanne posts a free printable the size of a 6×6 plaque.  The plaques are easy to print on patterned paper.  I layered the printable on white cardstock and then glued it to the plaque that I painted a Thunderbolt Blue.  Go here to get the information on how to get the July printable. 

This one didn’t make it to my 4th display but I really like this printable from Every Creative Endeavor.  Go here to check out this free printable for the 4th.

Do you decorate for the 4th?

Thrifty Spring Decor

I realized today that the 4th of July is around the corner.  It is hard to believe with the weather we are having here that summer is already flying by.

Before I decorate for the 4th, I wanted to show you my spring corner.

The only thing that was new is the little bird on the bottom left hand corner and the eggs.  I purchased the bird and the eggs at Real Deals for less than $5.  I really enjoy that store.  They are only open 2 days per week, and their selection moves fast.

I got the checkered vase and flowers for $1 at a garage sale intending to repaint it, but it worked so well with this display, I left it.

The sign is a printable from this blog, Just Another Hang Up.  She does a monthly Plaque Attack where I download her subway art for free to print for my private use.   I printed it on a soft yellow scrapbook paper and glued it to a wood plaque that I bought at Hobby Lobby.  I painted it an apple green. 

The pot I purchased at a thrift store for $1.50.  It was marked on the bottom $49.99 from Kohls.  It was a nice pot, but I wanted something bright and cheerful.  So I painted it apple green as well.  Check out the before and after.

The scallop wooden bowl with the eggs was purchased at a thrift store as well. I probably will paint it someday, but I wanted a wood look to the display.

The little yellow bowl is wood that I purchased at a thrift store.  I think they were 6 for $1.

 The green candle was a gold candle.  It was on sale for half off at a thrift store after Christmas.  I bought them for $1.  Looking forward to using the others in my future home decor.

Now that you know what I did to create my spring display, Here it is again.  A fun cheerful corner.
