USA Yarn Project

So I'm back from our lake trip sunburned and tired...
but we had lots of fun.

Little man loved the boat and is more excited than ever about our upcoming beach trip.
He's decided that swimming is the best thing ever...
and finding a huge bass washed up that had obviously gotten greedy and paid for it.
He had three fish in his belly and obviously that had been his demise :)

Little man lovvvvved that.

Aren't you excited about two yarn projects in one week?
I hadn't really planned it like that but...I figured I needed to show my last Fourth of July project before the Fourth actually came.

Little man loves helping with projects and he really likes wrapping yarn...so I decided to incorporate that and make another frame wreath like I did last fall.

That one got covered with book pages...
this one got yarn.
It's just how it goes :)

You'll have to imagine the boring black frame it started as since I was a bad blogger and didn't take any pictures...

Me and little man wrapped it in white yarn and then I let him dig around to find Americana stuff :)

We painted a few stars and covered a couple with fun paper then hot glued them into one corner.

I picked up some wooden letters I saw at Walmart and we used some red fabric I had on hand to cover them.

I frayed the edges to let them be worn- and I like the black peeking out around the corners:)

Some twine was the perfect hanger...

I think our house officially welcomes celebrating America-
little man is dying to sing 'happy birthday' to it. Lol.

This frame wreath has already found a new home since the coffee filter wreath will be taking the front door...
and it's new home has something to do with this little sad guy...

But of course much prettier now :)

Can't wait to show you!!!
