Crib Spring Patriotic Flag

The 4th of July is fast approaching,   so I have been trying to get a few Patriotic decorations put out.     I put a few out before Memorial a few more.     I will probably leave them all up til after Labor Day.

I decided to hang the Patriotic flag that I made on the front of the built in display cabinet in the family room.     I like the way you can peek in between the springs to see the vignettes on the shelves.

My Give Thanks sign is a reminder that we should all be grateful for the freedom we enjoy in America.

I found my spring Saturday at a yard sale........

The whole baby bed was only $7.50......what a deal!     I have a project in mind to use the bed as yard art.

  I wanted my flag to fit in with my shabby chic decor in the family room,   so I picked out fabric in pastel colors.    I used some striped pink and cream ticking fabric and a yard sale sheet with some blue in it.......

The sheet also had some pastel colored flowers in it.

It was a simple project that didn't take very long.     I just ripped 2 inch pieces of fabric and wove them thru the springs.

I saved all the pieces that I cut off the ends and tied them all together.    I tied all of them to the top left corner of the flag for a little added touch.

Here's a peek into the china cabinet.......


I wanted to share the Patriotic place mats that I am using on the table.

I bought them a few weeks ago at Walmart for a couple of dollars each.

They are vinyl for easy cleaning and are also reversible.

Have a wonderful week ahead!

  3. What a creative idea. I never would have thought of making a flag out of baby crib springs in a million years. I am awed by the way you look at things--very cool.

  4. I always enjoy seeing your newest creations. The flag is very cute! I love how you take a traditional idea, add the pink/cream colors/flowers you love, and create something so amazing. It fits right in with your shabby chic decor but still conveys that traditional feel of the item! You are so clever and creative!
