I picked up some patriotic paper fans from the Dollar Tree. They came two to a pack, one large and one small. I'll go ahead and tell you to expect to need a few more supplies to make them work. One of mine was missing string and one was missing the adhesive strip to hold it together. I also took extra adhesive to get them to stay together in the middle and not fold in half. I hung them from my mantel on clear Command hooks. You could also make a garland with them.
I placed some red votives I already had on hand on each side. I purchased some small flags from Michael's and added them to the succulent arrangement.
I took the fan with no string and adhered a small dowel to the back and stuck it in my shell filled hurricane. I also picked up the picture frame from Tuesday Morning for $3.99. I placed a photo taken at Patriot's Point, S.C. in the frame.
That's it. Just a few pops of red, white, and blue and my coastal mantel became a patriotic mantel for the Fourth of July.
Did you decorate for the Fourth of July? If so, I'd love to know how and what items you used.
