Patriotic Series: Part 3 – Last minute inspiration

I bought a set [3pk] of leis for my son for their Wear Red, White, Blue Day @ school. Now, it’s just going to collect dust until their next event. I barely learned how to make flower frills and a thought hit me on the way home yesterday. I wonder if I can make frills with the leis.
It was simple to make. I used about 20 flowers to make one frill. I was able to put one on my daughter’s tophat, and I was able to make a pin for me. I still have about half of the lei left. If time permits, I might just make a headband, and add them to a flip flop or something.

Patriotic Series: Part 2 – My old junk is my new treasure

I had this faded Dollar Tree Wreath.

I had left over garlands, and bought a new one and turned it into a new wreath.

Until then,

Patriotic Series: Part 1 – Feeling Patriotic

Patriotic DIY Tophat

I should have a premade template post that starts with…”I wasn’t planning for this DIY, but…” Anyway, I was inspired from the cowboy hat that I whipped up, and thought I should make a red, white, and blue – just in case the school holds another spirit week, day, assembly. I was really inclined to make a tophat….

-Headband was wrapped with red ribbon.

-Tophat was made from: glitter foam sheets, empty ribbon spool, rose, ribbon, feathers, garland, cord from door hanger, and felt stars

Patriotic Wreath DIYbut, I didn’t make the headband until I made this wreath. I purchased the garland thinking I’m going to be using it for the headband.

Until Then,
