4th of July “Wreath”

IMG_6608

I’ve had this stack of metal stars for quite a few years now and it is always a pain to hang them for the holiday because they require five of those “removable” hooks to be attached to my front door for Memorial Day and then again on Independence Day.  I was looking for a way to hang them all together when I found a piece of scrap wood in my shed.

 

I applied two coats of white paint.

Then I attached two small eye hooks to the back and strung several layers of wire that I also found in the shed.IMG_6613

I arranged the stars on the white background and then used tiny nails to hang them.

Now I can hang all my stars at once and I don’t have to fight with those “removable” hooks.  I think it turned out pretty well.
