Patriotic Farmhouse Mantel

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Patriotic Farmhouse MantelThe 4th of July is here and I have decked out my mantel to celebrate! It's a simple farmhouse design with lots of galvanized goodness, paper stars, rag balls and garlands in stars and stripes!

LAST YEAR'S PATRIOTIC MANTEL actually used several of the same elements but had lots of extra bling for the little grands!
