{Fourth of July Mantel Decor}

We are in countdown mode around here...
only a week until we are lounging beachside, listening to the waves & soaking up the sunshine!!

I only have a week left of grad school and I'm so incredibly excited to be wrapping it all up. 

But before we leave for the beach, I wanted to share our Fourth of July decor that we have around the house so far. 
I didn't go all out for it but I made a few changes on the mantel that made all the difference. 

If you remember my spring mantel I shared a few months ago, you can see that a lot of it stuck around to make up the bulk of the mantel. 
I just added a few pieces to make it sing a little more red, white & blue. 

I whipped up a quick 'In God We Trust' sign from old pallet wood and a few burlap & fabric stars. 
It was a quick & easy project but I love the rustic americana it brings. 

The blue 'freedom' block was from my 4th of July centerpiece I put together last year. 
And my little mason jar got a little star love too with some fabric stars I attached to wooden dowels. 

The flag was a fun distressed piece I made. I just can't get enough of distressed signs :) 

The 'home of the brave, land of the free' was a free printable I shared a couple years ago.
You can get your own here

Lastly, I added a 'freedom' banner I made from linen & twine. The same fabric stars from my pallet sign were used on the banner too. 

How are you liking my fourth decor? 
I"m loving having a little bit of patriotic flair around. 

Are you decorating a bit for the holiday? 

Hope you guys are having a great week, check back tomorrow for some fun & colorful fourth of July printables you can use in your own decor!!
