I have always loved decorating for holidays year-round. My mom used to have a cute little shelf in our kitchen, and with each holiday she had sweet little hand-painted wood decor pieces to display on the shelf. A little Christmas tree at Christmas time, a painted egg for Easter, a turkey for Thanksgiving, and so on. For the months of June and July I remember setting her sweet little American Flag on the shelf. It was such a nice little reminder of the upcoming holiday, and it kept my brother and I excited about each new season.
This year I wanted to incorporate some Patriotic decor in my own home. I decided to create my own DIY pillow cover using a stencil, a plain pillow cover, and some fabric markers. It is a simple process, and you can customize it however you like! For this Patriotic pillow I added some song lyrics from the song “God Bless America” – and I love how it turned out!
