I decorated a mantle for Memorial Day. When decorating for seasons and holidays I never want to get too cheesy and tacky. This is my take on a patriotic themed mantle. (Use it for both Memorial Day & 4th of July!)
Everything you see is available at Hobby Lobby (minus the clock, which is available in my shop). While I am a huge supporter of local businesses, when I do these “challenges” I like to do them at easily accessible stores so all my readers can replicate it.
I first purchased 2 yards of both stripe and star fabric. I gathered the fabric and secured it with floral wire. The candlesticks, florals, lantern, fabric and galvanized stars are all available at Hobby Lobby. The large clock is for sale in my shop located within Kat & Co in St. Joseph MO.
Most of all, thank you to our selfless troops who sacrifice everything for our safety and freedom. I am surrounded by many hero’s in my own family! My handsome Papa (photo below), Uncle Bill, brother in law Landon, Mackenzy, Aunt Becky, and all my Moloney cousins. I love you all so much, thank you for all the work you do!
