Crafty Things: Memorial Wreath

When most people plan their activities for Memorial Day weekend parades, picnics, barbeques and maybe even a weekend getaway or a camping trip is often part of that celebration.

Most people also remember that Memorial Day is for remembering; for remembering those who have served our country and also those who still do and honoring them and their sacrifices.

My father passed away only a couple of months ago and as a Marine who served in the Vietnam War, his stone at the cemetary will certainly get a flag, just like all the other veterans who have passed on.

But, he will also get a special honor from me, his oldest daughter, whom misses him so much

I made this special wreath to take to the cemetary this weekend to place where he rests.

I wanted it to look patriotic, but I thought the addition of the bright yellow gave it a nice pop of color and make it really stand out.

Thanks for stopping by!
I will be joining Courtney at French Country Cottage for Feathered Nest Friday
and Cindy at My Romantic Home for Show & Tell Friday!

Have a safe and happy holiday weekend!

You did a great job on your patriotic wreath. It will look beautiful next to your father's stone at the cemetery. Thanks for sharing.
