I finally finished decorating my front porch! I didn’t want to fix it too early because we live on a gravel road and I wanted it to still look good for the barbeque. When I did start working on it, I ran out of bows and then nobody had anymore!
I was planning on trying to find some reasonable priced bunting but I found two flat sheets at Goodwill for $1.99 each. And they were red, white and blue stripes!
I started by folding each sheet evenly into three equal sections and cut them to make 3 panels.
I purchased the large bows at the Dollar Tree. I used jute string to gather the material and attach it to my porch railing. After I started, I realized that I would have to have more drapes. Are you following me? I hope I’m making sense. I wanted to put a bow where the drape met the porch but I didn’t haven’t enough. I went to town yesterday and the Dollar Trees were out. I checked Hobby Lobby for some ribbon to make some and they were OUT! So I went back to the Dollar Tree and bought the pinwheels.
Hunter hung a flag outside the window upstairs.
My mesh wreath is on the front door.

and a close up of the pinwheel. So, for $15 I have my front porch decorated! Now, I have to get busy, I still have more to do before the 4th. Time is running out!
