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 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.
