July 4th Inspiration

Stars and Stripes Burlap Wreath

 Inspiration  [in-spuh-rey-shuh n]
1.  something inspired, as an idea.
2. a result of inspired activity.
3. a thing or person that inspires.

Even creative people need a spark now and again. Ideas can come from anywhere and everywhere, I was inspired by this burlap wreath. found on Confessions of a Plate Addict. There are many other clever ideas and lots of DIY projects to make this your best Independence Day ever. 
Now that the front door is appropriately adorned, greet your arriving guests with lemonade infused with cool cubes of blueberries and pomegranate seeds. I would love to hear any ideas for recreating the long shaped cubes...that has me stumped at the moment.
