Hello everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend. On Saturday morning I put out the rest of my 4th of July decorations...
Flags went into the Geranium pots out front.
The rest of my decorations were inspired by one of my favorite books, "Sentimental Living from the Front Porch" by Alda Ellis.
I found this door hanger awhile back for a $1.00 but it had a Christmas picture on the front of it. I covered it with blue with white stars scrapbook paper and added a red bow, greenery, daisies and mini flags.
For the back porch table, I bought 1 1/2 yards of this patriotic fabric and cut out a square. Well, almost a square, my rotary cutter wasn't cooperating. ;0) Instead of sewing up the hems, I used my pinking shears all along the edges.
The centerpiece is two jars filled with white navy beans, a ribbon tied around the jar and firecrackers shooting out.
The firecrackers are actually drinking straws!
Lastly, I made a table runner made from the leftover fabric...
I got out my pinking shears again for the edges and hot glued red pom-pom trim on the ends.
Asparagus Fern, mini flags and more firecrackers in a vase.
Thank you for looking at my decorations! Now all we need are the hamburgers and hotdogs!
