4th Of July Mantel

Okay, y’all, here’s my 4th of July mantel decor post that I promised yesterday! :)  On a whim I decided to freshen up my summer mantel {that was ripped apart twice for events} with red and other vintage, patriotic-ish items that I had on hand.

I adore my red lantern. It was silver until I attacked it with some red spray paint!

The “freedom” banner makes me proud!

I love the pops of red, aqua, whites and touches of yellow!

This candle holder is a yard sale find for $1, if I remember correctly.  It works perfectly on the mantel for this season!

The flowers were left over from the adorable baby girl shower that I decorated for last weekend. Decorating with flowers on the mantel is fun and I love the “life” that they bring to this space!

Do you decorate for the 4th of July?

I’m linking up to Made By You Monday.
