I've been wanting to make a door decoration to celebrate the 4th of July for quite some time. I love some of the patriotic crafts I see on Pinterest, but I wanted to make something bold and summery for our front door, and hopeful something that would use materials I had on hand.
I started with a simple flag design, created using pickets made from scrap wood. I painted these pickets with a stylized star and stripes pattern. Then I added some artificial blooms to the top edge for a touch of summer.
You can find all the direction on my blog on Hubpages! Enjoy!!

Along with my Crayon Covered Gift Jars, there are some wonderful craft projects included here. I definitely want to try the Folded Paper Bracelets by Picklebums and I love the little Hula Dolls made from toilet paper rolls by MollyMoo Crafts. I think once I show my husband the Cardboard Box Lap Tray from A Centsible Life, he's going to want one so he can lounge about in bed :)
Please check out this recycled craft roundup and see all these great craft ideas!
