Patriotic Wreath Project {USAF}

Here's my Patriotic Wreath! 


For the most part, I'm pleased with how it turned out. I probably could have sprayed a little more paint on it for better coverage but I'm impatient and didn't want to wait. In other words, I procrastinated and made it at the last minute. ;-)


I found the idea for the light wash of color on the 'palette' from Pinterest too. Adding silver glitter to the white letters gives it a sparkle! They were rather dull and flat looking otherwise.


Our front door is teal colored and it looked ridiculous hanging up there, so I decided to hang it on one of my repurposed shutters and sit it out on our deck. We spend a lot of time out there and it's perfect for this USAF family living near an AF base. 

I think this wreath is versatile for any of our holidays that celebrate America and our Military.

I'm going on a short blogging break (as mentioned in my previous post) so I can spend time with our very own Airman who is coming for a visit, along with his brother.

See y'all in a couple of weeks!

May the Lord bless you!!!

  1. Hey there, lovely lady! Oh, I just love your patriotic wreath! What a clever idea for the centerpiece :) I haven't even started thinking about anything patriotic, but I should since the 4th of July is only a month away.

    I hope you have a wonderful blogging break, dear friend. Love and hugs to you!

  5. Look at you...Lovely wreath, Anne.
    I see in the back ground the beach and water. Is that really what you see from your home?

  6. I came by to visit with you and would have sworn that I had left a comment on this post quite some time ago??? I'm sure it was an error on my part. :)

    You are so wonderful at crafting, Anne. This was wonderful, and so patriotic yet not over done.

    I trust that your 4th was blessed~~
