4th of July

These are a couple of 4th of July projects I have done this year.
 This is the little craft project I did at my Mother/Daughter Relief Society. It was REALLY easy!!! All I did was cut a piece of cardboard to fit my frame and then used washi tape (from Target) to create a design.
This next one, I really like. I had canvas that didn't work out from a Christmas project I tried to do. So, I sprayed it cream, then cut my words out of vinyl (I used some vinyl that I didn't like --maybe not such a good idea.) Then I sprayed the canvas, with the vinyl on it, red. Once it had dried, I peeled the letters off and I had a finished project. Because my vinyl was some cheap, old stuff I had, the spray paint seeped under the letters, but it kind of gives it a rustic feel.

Merlynn bought this Uncle Sam hat at the Wood Connection a couple weeks ago when we were there. I've struggled with it because they didn't have the exact paper as the store, so I was sure I had something that would work--NO. I've had it sitting on my table, trying to decide which paper to use--I decided ot finally just get it done.

I hope everyone has a great 4th of July tomorrow!
