I had a request a couple weeks back for a door decoration for Memorial Day.
After thinking a while and playing around with a couple things, I came up with these two. I have one more to show you but need to add just a bit more before I do.
I really like this saying. It seems to work for Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Flag Day, September 11th, Veterans Day, Armed Forces Day, and so on.
The flag was a bit tricky to figure out, and I would still change it a bit before selling it as a kit, but I am happy with the design as a whole. I ended up not being able to get all 50 stars on, but I have reduced them down so next time they should fit. The stars are vinyl.
My other sign is the classic yellow ribbon. I fought over what words to actually put on sign. Finally I settled on the traditional "Support Our Troops" to make it work for more situations, but I also thought "We Remember", "Home of the Brave", or "In Remembrance" would look nice on the ribbon.
Here is the ribbon plain...
Here it is with a huge bow. I like the idea of the bow....
I love the added color...I am just not sure where to put it!
Here I have it just above the words...
Here it is up higher. I would like it right where the two ribbon ends meet, but then I can't have words. Such troubles ;0}
