Redoing the Red White and Blue..

 One of my favorite projects is this patriotic   Decomesh wreath I made it 3 years ago and
 the red decomesh was really faded this year when I put it up.. So I took it down and took out all the red , and put new red pieces in so it looks alot better.
 Here it is after taking out the red pieces.
 I use floral pins and also hot glue over the pins to hold the decomesh in. I use pieces of decomesh that are about 18 inches long . Scrunch them up , pin them and hot glue.


 I ended up replacing the blue too, it was a little faded but mostly needed puffing up. I think I am going to have to redo the white too so that it is equally as puffy as the rest of the wreath.
 Last year I made this flag pillow to put on the chair that sits on our front porch. It too was a little faded , so since I had hot glued all the ruffles on , I ripped those off as well..
 I used red gingham ( love the red gingham :), muslin  and blue dot fabric.. I use hot glue and pinch the ruffles in place..


 I ended up pulling up the blue on the top and making the ruffle go all the way across .





Love my wicker chair  that we got last week ! I think the flag pillow looks so cute on it !

Priscilla, this looks so crisp and fresh. Gosh, it's amazing what replacing faded colors with brighter colors will do. You have done a fabulous job and the items are very creative!

Both the pillow and the wreath are July 4th ready. They look great. I saw some burlap ribbon at the store yesterday and pondered trying a similar wreath idea.
