Feeling very Patriotic (Post #2 for today)

Last week  I posted pictures of a 4th of July wreath I had made.  I may add more flowers, as I do like lots of flowers on my wreaths (LOL).  Aside from paper crafting, painting, poetry, and other crafts, I just LOVE to make wreaths for every holiday!!!!  This year is my first attempt at 4th of July wreath making.  So far I have made two.  Here is the one I made last week (read more HERE)

I want to also share a wall hanging that I had made a while back, but I do believe it is definitely one of my favorite altered items thus far.  You can read more here...

The next wreath is the 2nd one I made.  I didn't add flowers this time, but still love how it turned out.  The ribbon I used was found at Pat Catan's in a bin with clearance ribbon.  I loved the metallic look with the miniature stars cut out! I got 2 red and 1 blue.  I am very Patriotic and there is a lot of enthusiasm that I have for my country.  I have already put up grapevine stars with R,W&B berries as trim and a folk art American flag in my house front.  I plan to place flags in my flowerbeds, and will be displaying one of my wreaths, too.

Here is the wreath:

I plan to enter this creation in a few places:
