After I made my 4th of July pillows, I got excited about decorating the front porch and a few places around the house. Nothing crazy, just enough to celebrate this great country I live in. A trip to the dollar store and I was ready to go. I had some star decals left over from my pillow project, so I decided to attach them to some skewers. It was simple enough to do, just attach one decal to a skewer then attach the same size decal to the back so that they stick to each-other with the stick in between.
I stuck these in the planter on the front door.
Next, I strung together some red, white and blue paper lanterns to hang instead of a flag. Pillows on the chairs and the front porch is done. Patriotic but not over the top. I like it.
Next, the outdoor dining room got some sparkle with a garland and sprays instead of candles.
A garland for the dining room light fixture...
And one last garland for the breakfast room table...
I did all this for less than $15 (not including the pillows). Notice that I didn't go crazy with red, white and blue. I used orange flowers in the breakfast room and a burlap runner on the dining table. That makes it a lot more subtle and doesn't look like theme decor which is not my style.
Happy 4th of July!!
I'll keep you posted...
