Americana Decor and Burlap - Hot Trends


Today we are sharing some great Americana DIY crafts by Small Fry and Company. These are great decorations for Memorial Day, Fourth of July or Veteran's Day. Isn't it nice to be able to reuse your holiday decor often throughout the year?








She created this burlap cover wreath from scraps in her craft room.

Her Instructions:
 I cut my burlap into strips long enough to wrap around the wreath.  I spray painted them red, white and blue.  Then using hot glue I wrapped them around the wreath and glued in place alternating red and white strips.  NOTE: be very careful gluing these on-the glue soaks right through the burlap and is very dangerous just ask my finger that is missing a big chunk of skin that was stuck to the hot glue (it's not pretty).
 Add the strips of blue.
Paint on the stars. I just free handed some stars with white paint and a brush.
 
And done.  Literally 15 minutes start to finish and I love everything about it.
