Fourth of July Wreath

Happy July!  
I have never gotten into decorating for the 4th because we are usually camping.  This year, camping isn't going to happen.  
I found this wreath through Pinterest - here is the original site.  I really really loved it.  I tried to use what I had at home, with the exception of a wreath form.

I only spent about forever tracing stars and cutting them out - FOREVER!!  After I was done, I am wondering if it was worth the extra effort.  You could probably do squares and get a similar effect.

I had this jute webbing left over from storage cubes and it fit my color scheme!  

It is held on with straight pins.

Next, I took the stars and folded them into quarters and glued it onto the wreath with hot glue.

I can't even estimate how much this took!  I just kept going until it was filled and I ran out of felt.  I had some navy striped knit, from a maxi skirt my daughter sewed and wrapped a strip around the top.

Well, aren't we looking festive?

I seriously love it!  It might be just the thing to get my crafting mojo going again - maybe.

Have a great 4th of July!!  I am a part of ProFlowers Wreaths All Year project.
