Last Minute Ideas for Memorial Day

Quick and Easy Patriotic Wreaths, Dollar Store Crafts

With today being the start of Memorial Day weekend, I thought I would do a round out of some of our Patriotic Posts to give you some last minute ideas for this Patriotic Weekend.   You can make these Patriotic Wreaths in just a couple of minutes, and they are affordable too. All of the supplies can be found at the Dollar Tree.  They were featured last year on Crafting with Kara.
