USA Home Decor

USA Home Decor - cute and easy { }

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 papier-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!

    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!
