I decided this year to decorate at the beginning of May for Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day all in one. That way I am not switching between summer decorations and holidays. Plus, I love Patriotic stuff. I followed Jen's tutorial, but went for a little less burlap since I had such a big wreath frame. I also opted for a lighter burlap and used a patriotic paisley bandana for the fabric pieces.
I also used the words life, liberty, and love- because that is what America means to me!
Definitely love the end result and it was a perfect end of the school year project... I sat on my couch and cut circles while watching a mindless movie!
P.S. I know you are a bit jealous of my Uncle Sam. I became a bit obsessed when I saw him at my mom and dad's... let's just say my mom had to repurchase one for herself!
