Fourth of July top hat frame wreath

 

 
This was my kind of project. Quick. Easy. While browsing at the Dollar Tree a few weeks ago, I saw this top hat decoration. I thought it would be cute hanging on my door, but knew it could be cuter framed.
 
 
 
I happened upon a sale at Michael's where I got a laser cut frame for 50% off and their Craft Smart paint was on sale too.


I painted the frame with "holiday red".  It took three coats because this wood really soaks up the paint. After I painted it, I applied a clear top coat by Plaid. Then I added some pears and rhinestone embellishments to the frame. I didn't go overboard with red, white, and blue so I can use the same frame at Valentine's or Christmas.  Here are a few close ups of the embellishments.



I hung the top hat from the back of the frame. I attached it with a staple. Be careful with staples, one of mine showed from the front but  I covered it with a rhinestone jewel.

I added a flag to my plants at the front entry and now my door/entry is decorated for the Fourth of July.
