USA Home Decor

USA Home Decor - cute and easy { lilluna.com } All you need is some paper mache letters, paint, glitter, and glue!

Hi Lil Luna Readers! This is Sarah again from over at Boxwood Clippings.

Today I have another fun, fast and easy project for you. This one is just in time for the 4th of July holiday: a cute ‘USA’ decoration.

Red, White and Blue are pretty hard to beat this time of year, but sometimes a more subtle look is just right for the occasion. I’ve been looking for a white and silver patriotic decoration for a while; with no luck, I headed to Hobby Lobby and picked up some of these paper-mâché letters to embellish.

This little nook in my kitchen was looking for a little patriotism!

Here are the letters ‘as is’:

Then I gave them a little white-wash with craft paint.

Next, the fun part: different designs on each one! It’s fun to come up with different ways to make a pattern. For the ‘U’ I simply used the end of a pencil as a stamp.

For the ‘S’, I created thick stripes; and for the ‘A’ I made fine dots arranged in swirls to look a bit like fireworks.

Here’s how they looked together:

To finish, I wanted to add a little festivity with some glitter. I just used glue and went to town!

They turned out really cute (and even better in person). Sometimes it’s hard to capture the ‘sparkle’ on camera!

As always, a little holiday decorating can go a long way. Quick, simple projects are key to bringing out the best of the holiday!

    I really like these 4th of July projects that are a little more neutral! Red white and blue doesn’t exactly fit well with my decor, so I’ll be borrowing these ideas! Thanks!

    Love the way the letters sparkle and that it isn’t too flashy! Could keep this up all year long to make you feel patriotic!
