Plant your favorite flower or plant then set it out on your porch or deck to add a bit of patriotic charm to the outside of your house.
Or, to give the inside of your house some old country primitive charm, add Styrofoam inside the pot, glue moss on top and add a wire curly cue to hold a picture then set on your coffee table of picture shelf.
Burlap and muslin candle jar wraps: Again using acrylic, paint primitive sheep, willow trees, Uncle Sam hats, barns, fences, out buildings and stars in patriotic red, white and blue. Then sew around the edges (shown are candle jar wraps with raw edges) and velcro at both ends then set around the house to mingle with your gorgeous antiques.
Note: For your glass projects, wipe down with alcohol and let dry. You'll need to paint several layers for the glass to look right so be sure to let the paint dry between coats.
You can find these items for sale at Gramma Sophie's in Boonville, MO.
