Memorial Day ushers in the start of summer, barbecues and red white and blue. The holiday is right around the corner and we’re so excited to start showcasing more of the Americana line. Today Design Team Member Samantha Taylor is sharing a fun patriotic sign made with papers from the line.
Every year I eagerly wait for Pebbles American themed collection to come out. It is always my favorite, and this year is no exception. I love Americana, and couldn’t wait to make a patriotic piece of home decor.
This project is so simple, but is a great focal point for 4th of July decorating. It’s a simple as cutting out a patriotic saying, and gluing it to a wood background. Each line is cut in a different font to give it a bit of a subway art feel, but to keep it cohesive I repeated the patterned papers for the top and bottom lines. Finally, I added a few pinwheels and candy dots to give the whole thing a bit more dimension.
In case you want to try this with some alternate patriotic sayings, you could also try:
“Land of the free, home of the brave”
“My country ’tis of thee, sweet land of liberty”
“God bless America, my home sweet home”
Whatever saying you choose, cutting them in Americana is sure to give it that extra bit of patriotic flair!
