Proud to be American Wreath

I love the 4th of July!!! 

Seriously, it's one of my favorite holidays. Probably because my parents turn it into a huge event. A huge event. Like having 60+ people over for a barbecue and the fireworks that my Dad, brothers and other various males from my family light off. It's always tons of fun, especially because everyone is having a good time. 

Since my parents like decorating for any holiday, especially when they have people over, I decided that I was going to make them a wreath for the occasion. 

However, I've been a little overzealous about crafting for the 4th, and got this wreath done a little early. (Okay, really early.) I wanted them to be able to hang it up for awhile so I added a cool feature. 

A chalkboard sign so they can change the greeting!!! 

so it could say this...

or this...

but right now, it currently says this...

I know, I'm a genius!!!

I'm sharing this project at the following link parties:

  6. Wow, it sounds like your family really knows how to celebrate the fourth. Your wreath will become an annual feature. Incorporating the chalkboard sign is a great idea. I found your post through Handy Man Crafty Woman.
