4th of July DIY decorations - display for under $10!

I thought today I would share my 4th of July shelf.  The whole thing cost me about $10 to do!  You have to love that!
Last week when I was planning out my blog posts I was thinking I would show the picture and then do a tutorial on how to do the crafts, but honestly they are so easy they don’t justify a tutorial!
 Here is my breakdow of the shelf:
Flags in milk glass vase.  I got the flags from the dollar bins from Target.  $2

Milk glass vase - $1 from the thrift store

Pledge subway art - free to dowload from Eighteen25.  I print mine at Office Max (12×18 I believe is the largest size you can go for cheap!) on card stock for about $1.50.
Wreath - used a straw wreath base $1.99 already had the yarn!  It’s really simple project to do - I suggest doing it while watching a movie because honestly, it’s not the most exciting craft to do! :) I cut my stars out of felt - I was even too lazy to hot glue my stars on. I just kind of stuck them on there!

Here are some links to others that have made the wreath:
The Creative Imperative
One Crafty Mama
God bless America print is from Landee See Landee Do.  Again I printed it from Office Max - this one was a 5 by 7 print on cardstock for a whole 75 cents.

Flag painted on burlap.  I just spray painted an old frame blue. Then simply, you guessed it, painted the flag.
I do recommend putting down a piece of wax paper under the burlap so the paint doesn’t seep through.
The rag garland.  I love.  Are you ready for this super hard craft?  Pick out your fabric.  I used 6 different kinds.  Cut into strips.  Then cut a piece of yarn the length you want your garland to be.  Simply tie the strips of fabric onto the yarn.  Yes.  That’s it.  You just tie it on.  Simple.
I really like our patriotic display.  I like the fact that it was quick, easy and didn’t cost much even more!  How do you decorate for the 4th of July?

I’m very honored for this post to be featured here:
