4th of July Decorating

I Love the 4th of July.
The combination of Summer + Family + Friends + Fireworks + Parades + Celebration + Barbeque's and my favorite colors Red, White and Blue all = Fun! 

I've done a little 4th of July decorating in my living room as well as my front door.
I made this wreath by re-assembling my fall one from HERE.  I switched out the pine cones for stars and flags. Instructions for the fabric rosettes can be found in that post as well.

My 4th of July Mantel includes; my driftwood sailboat that I made HERE, a couple of framed pictures, some bottles, and of course, gotta have a few American Flags.

I sewed two new pillows. This red white and blue one is just your basic pillow with a velcro opening. Sorry it's hard on the eyes,  it's blurry in all of the pictures I took of it.

And then I made this one with some blue and white striped linen fabric. This one is a pocket pillow (instructions HERE).  With this one I sewed a cross across the front.  I'm looking forward to washing it to get the raw edges to fray even more.

 By the way both fabrics are from JoAnn's.  I'm going back for some more of the blue and white fabric, I love it so much.  I'm thinking curtains.

Yes, my boys are watching NinjaGo.
They love that show. I had them hide behind the couch in that last picture.
They are also excited for the 4th with their cool new glasses. . .

That are even cooler in the dark.
