I like making mesh wreaths, but sometimes I just don't have the time to make the ones I imagine myself making. I've been pondering the design and creation a patriotic wreath for months now, and haven't been able to commit the time.
It just so happened that (on our way home from camping last weekend) we were driving through the small town of Siler City, NC and decided to stop for dinner. We pondered over where to eat, considering the slim number of choices , and then decided on a locally-owned restaurant that had a gift shop attached. That is when I fell in love... with this wreath.
It was perfect. Not exactly what I would have made, but better in some ways. Simple, yet almost just like a large flag. It's large, but with my tucked-in porch it is very visible from the road, which is what I wanted. One less thing to worry about having the time to do.
