This weekend we celebrate Memorial Day and the memory of those we have lost at war. We celebrate what it is to be an American! We reflect on what it means to be free.
We hang the flag, have picnics and spend time with family.
I have always admired the patriotic buntings that hang on porches and white picket fences in small town USA. It brings back memories of my childhood celebrating with parades and sparklers!
I love decorating and using our flag for the holiday. I made a very popular flag a few years ago too.
I wanted to decorate the store (Dreamingincolor) with something special. It is in the historic part of town so I felt this was fitting. I also think it would be a great decoration on any porch, gazebo, fence,etc.
So I went shopping at Old Time Pottery because I knew they had everything I needed for the holiday. There are several decorations but this one I purchased everyday things and transformed it to what I needed.
Head over to the blog post I wrote for them and learn how to make it and see how great the porch looks now!
It is easy! I just stapled it to the gingerbread molding. Oh and its waterproof!
