4th of July Mantel



The 4th of July is almost here and I thought my mantel had better get in on the Mantel Monday action. I had it all gussied up for Memorial Day, but that was a month ago. So, the red, white and blue came back today. As did the washi tape trim. As I discovered on Memorial Day, I love putting washi tape on the mantel because it peels right off without leaving a residue. 


The Patriotic Washi Tape Art tutorial can be found here. The fun red, white and blue circle garland is from Taffie Wishes and I won it during my American Crafter competition. It's so much fun and will definitely be used again! 


I'll be back tomorrow sharing the tutorial for paper flowers shown on last week's all paper mantel!

  5. Great idea putting the tape on the mantle itself! My favorite part is the circle string banner (or whatever you call those!)
