Star Obsession

No I’m not talking about celebrities.  I have a serious “thing” for stars.  As evidence, here are a few pics of the star decor in my house.  It’s something about the points and the even, proportionate look to a star. Don’t get me wrong, I love me a primitive, less proportionate star too.
And here are some stars on my craft projects.
The other day I was itching to repurpose something. So I went to the Thrift Store and found this star wreath for $3.

Nice because of all these cute stars but a little old fashion looking to me and obviously a Christmas Decoration.
  So I whipped out my paints and changed the red to a more vibrant version and pulled out some aqua.  Then I added some burlap ties.  And viola a Memorial Day/4th of July wreath that I love and makes me smile when I see it.

I'm linking up to Tatertots and Jello Weekend Wrap Party.   & Somewhat Simple.
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!

Jacilynn, I also have a thing for stars. My obsession started 4 years ago while in PEI, and getting extra large stars home on the plane was a challenge, but well worth the effort!!
Your star wreath will make everyone smile when they come to your door.
