Patriotic Mantel

I have seen lots of awesome patriotic decor ideas on Pinterest lately.  It was my inspiration to begin my patriotic mantel and and to create this picture to add to it.

This piece was the finishing touch to my mantel.

I love it and I will keep it up the remainder of the summer.  I feel like the summer with Memorial Day, Labor Day, and the 4th of July is a patriotic time of the year.

The pieces on the mantel break down like this:

The larger stars I picked up at Michael's for $3.99 each.

The birdhouse also came from Michael's and it was $4.99.

The picture frame on the left I picked up a while back on sale at Hobby Lobby to frame this picture of the husband receiving a letter of commendations while he was in the Navy.

I thought it fit right in on this mantel.

The frame I painted for the print I made I picked up at Wal-Mart for three bucks.  It looked like this when I brought it home.

Much better.

One more look..

Enjoy your day!!
