4th of July Rocket Wreath!!

Happy {almost} 4th of July!! 

I did it... I hopped on the "make a wreath out of a pool noodle" bus.  But I didn't go to the Dollar Tree and buy one like normal people do.  I ran outside to the pool and just shook the pool water off of one instead!  It was so brittle from being in the sun for a few summers that a chunk of it fell off when I was shaping the wreath, so I decided to make a little rocket out of that part... bonus :)


I didn't take step by step pictures because I had two napping babies and flew through this project as quickly as I could.  I love the way and turned out, and the best part is that I raided my craft supplies for the fabric, felt, ribbon, paper, mini clothespins, glitter, and of course, I had to throw in a little burlap!  Total cost= freeeee!

I thought I was finished with just the rocket for decoration, but it looked so plain so I added our country's birth year. Happy Birthday to the U.S.A!  


I hope you all have a fun and safe 4th of July!  And don't forget to enter to win the giveaway going on at Tattered and Inked right now.  I'm giving away a Scentsy plug-in warmer and scent bar, plus there are 8 other prizes all to be won by one lucky reader!!  xoxo
