4th of July Thrifted Decorations

Happy Independence Day! It is one day early but I plan to be celebrating with my family and friends tomorrow so I wanted to post a day early.

I created these table decorations using all thrifted elements or supplies used in other projects.
I started with vintage large spools. I wrapped some with white felt to cover the color of the thread still on the spool. I used bits of burlap to add texture and a little bit of lace. There are also two pieces of vintage, hand-crocheted elements used.

I wrapped one spools with Blue Chip Stamps and it became "Red, White and Blue Chip Stamps".

There is so much more you can do with these. I just had fun using so many thrifted supplies. Here is one idea on how to use these as a centerpiece.
I would also like to take a moment and thank Bree at Coupons on Caffeine. She did a wonderful Feature on my blog. And besides being so sweet to feature me, she also posts money-saving coupons which you can't help but love. So if you have a chance, visit her blog and Follow her for some great money-saving offers. Thank you Bree!

I hope everyone has a safe Fourth of July celebration.
