I was also able to incorporate a couple of my faux milk glass vases that I've blogged about before:
I added a "USA" wall hanging I found at the dollar store and and swagged some star gift wrap twine along the front of the mantle.
I finished it up with a stars and stripes pennant garland. Originally I was planning on making my own, along the same lines as the banner I made for my easter mantle, but when I saw this one for only $1 I couldn't pass it up:
The cost breakdown:
Wooden Stars (3): $2.67
Pennant Banner: $1
USA Plaque: $1
Star Garland: $1
Mini Flags (2 3-packs): $2
Beans (bulk): $2
TOTAL COST: $9.67
For only $10 I think it came out great!
God Bless the USA!
