Summer House Tour + FREE Printable

I love summer decor! Between general beachiness and the 4th of July, there are a lot of different directions you can go.

A few years ago I found this perfect piece of driftwood around Bridal Veil Falls. I drilled a hole in it for a stick and cut pieces of an old sheet for the sail. I just used white thread to hold the sail in place. It's probably one of my most favorite things!

Another free project I love, is this faux starfish and old fence picket American flag. It's held together with wood glue. I made a flour and salt dough to make the starfish. Then I painted them white and hot glued them in place.

Hint: salt looks a lot like white sand in an apothecary jar.

I had a hard time picking a patriotic song to display. I finally decided on "My Country 'Tis of Thee."

You can download an 8x10 print here.

I created the Abraham Lincoln art with my silhouette machine. 

I'll be happy to leave all this up until fall.

  1. I love all of it - but especially that flag - wondering how to pull it off with a maple leaf ( they're harder to do lol )
