Can you believe it? It has been a month since our last Pinterest challenge. Crazy, right? Thank you for stopping by our monthly Pinterest Challenge, coordinated by Cindy at County Road 407, for year-round decor inspiration. If you are coming from Katie’s blog at Let’s Add Sprinkles welcome to Everday Edits. I loved this month’s patriotic tray decor challenge.
This month’s challenge was inspired by Liz Marie’s 4th of July inspired tray.
My patriotic tray decor is front and center on my dining room table. I wish I had that cute little tricycle. Those plastic streamers bring back memories.
Patriotic Tray Decor Pinterest Challenge
For this challenge, I used items I had on hand. A few items were from previous upcycle projects. Oh, wait I did buy the small sign from the dollar section at Target.
My goal was to add pops of reds and blues against the green wreath. I pulled out my oversized galvanized serving piece as the base for this patriotic tray.
I used my stash of these boxes for shades of blue. The popular retail box supports the sign and makes the sign stand out.
The blue hue continued with a single cloth gingham napkin that I tucked inside a recycled glass jar.
I was stumped for red and white colors that were not covered with hearts intended for Valentine’s Day. And, I did not have the adorable tricycle. I needed something that would fit within the tray. As luck would have it I found a Christmas strand of wood bead garlands I purchased from my friend Katherine’s shop. I bought it after the holidays and never stored it with the Christmas decorations. It was just waiting for the 4th of July.
The beaded garland with red fabric ties was the perfect addition to the tray.
It looks perfect in this patriotic tray. What is that type of fabric called? All I can think of are the bonnets in Little House on the Prairie.
I found a white, wood monogram with red polka dots. It was from my “monogram everything” phase. Again, the red and white scrolled letter added height and a bit of whimsy to the patriotic tray.
