Red, White and Blue Decorating

My console table is all decorated for the 4th of July. It's not anything fancy or expensive but I love how it turned out. Most of the items I already had and the rest came from the dollar store and JoAnn's (on sale!).

There is one of my new IKEA lampshades! Isn't she cute?!

A little ribbon and fun accessories can make a big impact.

The faux flowers are from the dollar store. I just put them in a glass jar and added some ribbon. Doesn't get any easier than that! Plus, they're fake so I can use them again . . . they'll be perfect for some fun Valentine's Day decor!

My little vignette wouldn't be complete without some subway art. I painted an old frame white and used some red scrapbook paper behind the art. The little stars are just hot-glued right onto the paper. 

Here are the details:

Ribbon - JoAnn's (50% off)
2 Metal Stars - JoAnn's (2 for $1)
Faux Flowers - Dollar Store $1
Subway Art - Free!! 

I already had everything else from other decorating projects.

Have an awesome day!!
