Farmhouse Patriotic Decor ~ Bandanas for 4th of July

It’s the last Tuesday of the month, so that means it Reduce, Reuse, REFASHION time. yippee!! I just adore sharing these projects with you, especially because so many of you enjoy them. Today, I’m excited to share with you a simple, yet totally festive refashion for a farmhouse patriotic decor using bandanas repurposed into 4th of July (Independence Day) decor. Bonus, you can do this for any season or any holiday, just change up the colors as needed.

For my purposes today, I’ve chosen to go patriotic in my color choices for obvious reason with the upcoming holiday approaching. I don’t know about you, but I’m always looking for cute, affordable ways to decorate…and quickly. tee hee.

Also, I’m a sucker for a bandana as they bring back fun memories as a kid wearing them in my hair, or pretending to be off on some great adventure tying to a stick and tossing it over my shoulder. In addition, you can see how I refashioned bandanas into bags and skirts in the video below.

I bought two sets of 3 to refashion for today’s purpose. I couldn’t dare think of using my classic vintage bandanas I have in my stash because of what I have planned. eep!

DIY TIME

First, my goal is to create a farmhouse style vignette with a rustic vibe. So, in order to that, I want to age these bandanas to give a faded feel. Initially, I wanted to fade them using an oxygen cleaner and also the sun. My littlest is eager to help. We soak them for about an hour or so, then hang them up in the sun to dry.

Then, I didn’t feel that they were faded enough from their original vibrant color. So, next, I decided to soak them in a whitewash of thinned paint. Will this work? I figure it won’t hurt to try.

This definitely makes a difference in them as it not only adds a more faded look, but also more variants in the color. Fun! Last, but not least, I wrap them around canning jars to use in a festive centerpiece.

THE REVEAL

To put it all together I bring out my bunting made from thrift store fabric refashioned, some vintage finds, and 4th of July fun.

There’s nothing better than making your own home story from handmade and found items, don’t you think? Aside from the soaking, I literally put this all together in a matter of minutes. Not only that, bit it only cost me a few bucks and bit of time.

I do think, given more time of sun and soaking, my bandanas would be more aged. However, I’ll happily watch them do their thang for the time being in my reclaimed pallet centerpiece.
