Spider Web Wreath

This Spider Web Wreath is a fun spin on a classic wreath!   It is both creepy and crawly and super fun and festive!  Using a frame instead of the regular circle wreath gives it a bit of uniqueness!

Jean Pocket USA Bunting

I love all things patriotic!  I absolutely LOVE the 4th of July holiday as well!  This Jean Pocket USA Bunting sign can be used for all things red, white and blue!  You can also use it as a simple banner for your mantel, as front door decorations or you can even stuff the pockets and put it to use at your food table!  Multi tasking at it’s patriotic finest.

Supplies Needed:

  • 2 Pairs of Jeans with similar sized back pockets.  (pockets free of designs work best)
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon
  • Wooden Stars
  • Blue Paint
  • White Paint
  • Paint brush
  • Stencil Brush
  • Hot Glue Gun/Glue Sticks
  • Alphabet Stencils

Start out by cutting out your pockets.  I left the back jean part to actually keep them as functioning pockets.  Cut just under the Pocket Seam.

Lay them out flat to get the best placement if they are a bit different size wise.  One of my pairs of jeans had slightly bigger pockets.

Next you will stencil your USA on the pockets with white paint.   You can use a stencil set that can be picked up at any store that has art supplies or you can use my stencils that I made and used with my Silhouette CAMEO.

OK I have a confession….This is a lot of pink for me.  When I envisioned this project, I had white flowers in my head.  However if you will notice above…my front door is white also so that surely was not going to work!  I also don’t like to pay much for my fake flowers so when I walked into Dollar Tree and saw this great selection of Pink fake flowers I had to give into the pink goodness this time!

Supplies Needed:

  • 4-5 Flower Stems (try to get a variation in sizes of flowers)
  • Wooden Letter (use your coupon at Michael’s, Jo-Ann’s or Hobby Lobby)
  • Hot glue gun/glue sticks

Note:  I included these great pink little ball filler as well some some pink butterflies with my floral stems I bought!  Get creative with what’s available!

I started off by drilling a hole in my two circle plaques.  I used a 1/4” drill bit to make a place to tie all the letters together with the ribbon.  One of the plaques I just made one hole at the top (that’s the bottom O) and then other I made one at the top and the bottom.


Next I painted the B with black Chalkboard Paint and the two circle plaques with white paint.  I connected the two circles together using white ribbon.
