Celebrating Independence Day ~ the 4th of July!

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!!
