Americana Porch Makeover

I've been busy lately, but I really wanted to take a little time to Americanize my porch for the 4th.

Star box makeover (inspired by Craft-O-Maniac). It's supposed to be distressed, but I'm not so sure it shows on camera:

Tin Can Windsock (inspired by Under the Table and Dreaming):

And finally, my new wreath, inspired by no one. Just me! I really like using this same wreath form for all seasons, just dressing it up in new ribbon and embellishments. I like the rustic look it has. For this wreath, I just used wired ribbon and a bunch of red, white and blue yo-yos that I made last year. And flags of course!:

Happy 4th of July!

I'll be linking up here.


  1. looks great, liz! i can almost hear "i'm proud to be an american" playing as i look:) love it!

  2. This looks super patriotic! I *love* your wreath. So cute! Are your rosettes layers of yo-yos?

  3. I absolutely love your wreath! I hope you don't mind but I may use it for inspiration for my next one. I love making wreathes.
