Fourth of July Mantel

My Fourth of July Mantel was inspired by my Stars and Stripes Washi Tape Art!
I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out!  Some of you may recognize my washi tape project – if not, click here.  {We’ll wait while you catch up…}

The “Pursue Life, Liberty and Happiness” is a vintage poster I found online.  I was able to print it using Photoshop.  I just love the font!

The votive holders are recycled.  Yes, those are my glass etched spring votive holders turned backwards and adorned with washi tape…don’t judge me. =)

I had to leftover red floral gems from the little guy’s birthday party.  They became the perfect filler for the hurricane!

My pinwheel garland is my favorite part of this whole scene!  I found those adorable red, white and blue star brads at Hobby Lobby and they worked out perfectly!  Stay tuned tomorrow for that tutorial!
