Red, White and Blue Letter

Always proud to display the red, white and blue!  For the up-coming patriotic holidays I have painted stars and stripes on a letter M for the front door. I also found a square frame which has chicken wire in the back.  I like the combination of the frame with the letter in the center.  

 

 

I used a wooden star for a pattern and then a ruler to mark off the stripes.  I painted it with craft paint and gave it a light sanding when it was completely dry.

 

 

 

The frame was painted with a white wash to allow the natural grain to show through. Attaching the ribbon  was easy because the frame already had hangers on the back at the top.

Can’t wait to display this for Memorial Day, Flag Day, July 4th and Veteran’s Day. Thank you so much for stopping by!

 Cheers!
