Have a little state pride? Most of us do. If you’ve been to a tourist attraction lately you’ve probably seen the state outlines everyone seems to be wearing on a shirt. It’s a sweet tribute to the place that raised you and just a unique way to let people know where your allegiance lies.
Want to take it one step further? How about adding some lyrics to make that state your own?! Time to get crafty! Draw your own outline on a canvas, purchase a re-claimed wood cutout, or use construction paper – then find a lyric that talks about your state that you LOVE and write it or have it printed on the state for a personal touch!
