Patriotic Decor

I don't have much in the way of patriotic decor. When I saw the large eagle medallions in my recent vintage wallpaper finds - I knew I would have to make something out of one of them. I'm pretty happy with the way this turned out! I used silver glitter, some glitter leaves, red white and blue ribbon, stars, and red tissue fringe. Now I need to make some more!

This is great, Karla! So different from the typical red/white/blue that one always sees (and abounds, often in bad, but colorful taste at just about every store at this time of year!)
