Vintage Memorial Day Craft!

Happy Memorial Day everyone!  

I hope that you are having a great day!  I have a fun Vintage Memorial Day Craft to show you!  This is a fun project that you can do with the kids and you could leave it out all summer to show your patriotism!Vintage memorial day craftThis fun little candy jar is just one way that you could use these fun little picks.  You could use them as plant pokes, or make them into a darling garland to hang! To make this fun patriotic craft you will need to download this postcard image from The Graphic Fairy:

I am so grateful that we have a day to honor those that have passed on before us and to show our appreciation to all the service men and women and their families that have sacrificed so much for all of us…that we can be free!  We are so lucky to live in a country that is still free and we have the freedom and opportunities to become whomever we truly want to be.  I know there are a lot of people in the world today that do not have these privileges and I hope that we never take for granted all that we do have and the freedoms that we enjoy!

Thanks for Visiting!  

Happy Memorial Day!
