4th of July

Happy Birthday America

A "brooch" for the day

A wool felt mini pennant, made with vintage lace, buttons, crochet flowers, and die cut felt flowers

This was a simple galvanized tin bucket. I dry brushed it with acrylic paint, added cut out paper stars, covered some with buttons, added words, and filled with shredded crepe paper over styrofoam--that holds up the flags.

Hope everyone has a memorable 4th weekend, warm with the closeness of your family.

Elizabeth and Carol
