Patriotic Front Porch Decor

Memorial Day, Flag Day (this Thursday), Independence Day….so many Patriotic celebrations in the summertime!  I love them all and was excited to get my Patriotic-themed décor up.
DSCN8374So, here goes…
I picked up several cute odds-and-ends from the Dollar Spot in Target (Don’t you just love that section?): two paper banners, an “USA” sign, metallic star garland, and a package of metallic paper stars.  DSCN8313Using a foam wreath-form from Walmart, leftover burlap from previous projects, and fabric scraps, I started on a front-door wreath.  I cut strips of burlap and fabric and tied them around the form.DSCN8315DSCN8316I added a flag bell that I purchased from Hobby Lobby and up it went!DSCN8379We put a cute metal yard flag (also from Hobby Lobby….all their patriotic décor was on sale!) in the front flower bed.DSCN8344A pinwheel in an empty flower pot and a rustic painted flag on the shelves, add a little more to the theme.DSCN8378DSCN8375
