Happy Flag Day--A Patriotic Wreath

My aunt and my hubby's aunt have a birthday today--Happy Birthday!  
I also think of it as the kick off for patriotic decorations.

Do you remember my paper straw wreath from January?
Well I decided to use this for my 4th of July wreath too--with some additions of course.

Presenting my patriotic wreath:
I didn't want the blue stars to be permanent so I made up a way to stick them on. (click to found out how)

 I used Microsoft Word to print off a star shape
 To make it look more 3D I folded each point straight down to the inverted part.
 I hot glued on about a 3-4 inch piece of pipe cleaner.
 I wound each star around a straw
 Using this method made it easy to adjust the positions of the stars too.
Happy Flag Day!
