Memorial Day Centerpiece

Memorial Day Centerpiece

Can you believe that Memorial Day is this weekend? Crazy how time flies. I wanted to make some holiday items so I looked on Pinterest and Etsy. I saw several things that I liked so I began to make some patterns. 

After some cutting, re-cutting and starting over, I was able to make all of these items on my Memorial Day table.

I had the wooden tray and I got the runner when I was in Pittsburgh the last time.  The mason jar is one of my grandmothers.

The flags were easy to make. You just have to remember to put the stars on the opposite side if you want the flags to face each other. Learned that the hard way. I used wooden skewers and hot glue to hold the flag on. These flags were about 4 1/2 long and 3 inches wide.

These stars really caught my eye. After many attempts I was able to make a pattern that worked. Stuffing them was a different story. It took a couple of tries to see what worked best, but I persevered. I added a twine bow and small bell to the front. 

In the red enamel cup is a flag pillow. I have made several of these and more stars. I think I am getting carried away.

These stars were the easiest once I was able to get the pattern right. I love using ticking fabric when I can. I rusted some bells and safety pins and used them on these ones. I actually found this enamel tray and was almost ready to get rid of it. Thank goodness I didn't.

I had so much fabric to work with and even the stuffing. I did have to buy some star material, but that was inexpensive. 

I am so thrilled with all of these. I can keep them up for all of the summer holidays.

  4. I love all of the festive memorial day features. Enjoy the beach. I'm sorry I didn't know you get vertigo. I pray it doesn't bother you often. Hugs!
