Life, Liberty, and Love

I loved this wreath from the minute I saw it. I love most everything on Tatertots and Jello and if I could just quit my pesky job, tutoring on the side, running our house, and the 90 million other things I could make some of it. Anyway- I saved this project for a time when I knew I could squeeze it onto the project calendar... and I finally did it!

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!


  1. such a cute wreath! totally stealing the idea! LOVE Uncle Sam!!!!

  2. Very cute! btw, I went to the Tatertots & Jello tutorial & they have a Mr. Linky for those that have made a wreath from their tutorial. I didn't see your link there so I thought I'd tell you about it, here's the link:
