Stars & Stripes {WREATH}

The other night, while trying to tackle a LONG to-do-list, I found a few things in my craft stash that I thought would make a perfect Patriotic wreath.  So, I decided to forgo the to-do-list and do something a little more fun.  My crafting time has really been dwindling lately, so it was SO good to finally feel like I had done something crafty!

This was a great project because I had all the supplies on hand (yay, free for me), and it didn't take too long!
 It's pretty self-explanatory, but here are a few easy directions if you want to make your own:

Cut Strips of burlap.  I used white burlap and cut it into 2.5" strips.
 Paint half of the strips red.  I just used a foam brush and regular craft paint.  Spray paint would have been a bit faster, but I didn't have red, so this is what I used.  It was more of a blotting than a painting process.
 Cut the burlap to fit around the wreath, and hot-glue into place.  Alternate the white and red strips, overlapping just a little bit.
 Tie the star to the wreath, and hang from the door.
I love it!  I was needing a change to my front door, and this is perfect!  Gotta love the USA!
