4th of July Mantel

Hello friends! Can you believe it's July? I'm still playing catch up from 
my DIY/home decor blogging conference HavenSummer is definitively in full 
swing around here and we are gearing up for the 4th. Since I had gotten my 
summer mantel done {slacker} I thought I would throw up a quick 4th of 
July vignette. I had everything on hand except the chunky, white frame 
and I bought that at a garage sale for 50 cents. Score!

I found the "God bless America" sign on clearance last year. 

The Subway art is a Dollar Store gift bag I cut to fit my 8x10 garage sale frame.  
I also used scrapbook paper in the smaller frame to bring in more red.  

What are your plans for the 4th? 
Are you traveling or do you stay home? We are home bodies for sure.

I hope you have a great holiday ~


  1. This looks really great! I love the blend of old with the old Ball mason jars and the new with the round mirror and great modern prints! Great job!

  2. Adorable! We are staying close to home on the 4th.

  3. I love your mantel! The Dollar Store gift bag turned subway art is awesome! Have a terrific 4th of July!!

  4. Your mantel looks amazing. I love the mirror, & you are so clever to frame a gift bag! Love that!

  5. What a fantastic idea to use the gift bag! Hope you enjoyed your 4th. Did you ever get the giveaway pillow covers? Before our power went out I heard from Andrea and she said she was shipping them. That seems like a long time ago though. Please let me know...Happy Sunday!
