4th of July Decor

Hello, friends!! Can you believe the 4th of July is here?!

Around here that means that summer is half over which is SO completely depressing. I was just saying at my Flaunt it Friday party that I need to consider the summer to be only half started instead of half over... you know, like the glass is half full?

Whatever, it's half over.

Anywho, I don't do a whole big bunch of Independence Day decor but I like to get a little bit of my red, white, and blue decor on.  

Mr. Chic (check out our side gig Chic Wood Creations) made these cute wooden "folded flags" for a sale we did a couple weeks ago.  I made sure to snag a couple for myself.  He hand cut each of those stars with a band saw!  My man's got mad skillzzz.

They take center stage of my little Independance Day vignette.

He also made this rustic wooden flag.  It's huge so I put it next to my sideboard.  As a base and frame he used an old packing crate lid.  Bonus points for upcycling wood!

Here's the whole deal...

 I picked up this cute patriotic burlap banner at a flea market last year.  

 I also like to stick those cheap little flags around, they are an inexpensive way to add some patriotic flair.  (I just said "patriotic flair", ha!)

Name that movie?
Anyway,  check out my "patriotic flair" stuck in my roadside flowers the hub cut for me!...

More patriotic flair...

Patriotic flair even in my flower baskets! 

Hope you have a fun and patriotically-flair-filled-4th of July!

Happy 4th friends!

  1. I love that you added a little "flair" here and there. I really like the little burlap banner, I may have to make one of those for myself next year. Having just moved a few weeks ago I didn't do all I would have liked to, but I have a front porch for the first time in my life, and let me tell, you, it had red, white and blue bunting! Next year, perhaps I will feature the whole front porch decked for the 4th.


I L-O-V-E love your comments! :) I read and try to respond to every one! Thanks for taking your precious time to leave me a comment.

My faves...
