I really do love decorating for the 4th of July, and luckily, it is one of the easiest holidays to decorate for. The first step is to buy a bunch of flags and stick them all around. I have them in all my potted plants, both in the front and back yard.
For the most part, everything is the same as in previous years. This year, I didn't have enough ambition to get out the ladder and staple gun and put the bunting above the door.
Those 3 metal flags are a new addition, and I always love uncle sam being the greeter.
The USA firecrackers are new also.
For the inside, I made a new banner to go with the mantle decorations.
I purchased flag fabric a couple of years back and never did anything with it.
I was finally inspired by this garland that Pottery Barn was selling this year to make my own.
I bought some rope and started creating my own garland.
I think total cost for the project was less than $6!
I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.
