Decked out for the 4th of July

I love holidays...
and while I would
 be hard pressed
to pick a favorite
there is just something
about the 4th of July
that gets me every time...
maybe cause it's summer
and it's just a relaxing kinda 
holiday!

 The saying goes that
"Necessity is the mother of all invention"
well in my case
Necessity is the mother of all crafting!

I wanted to spend my money 
on a well made American Flag
and bunting....
so that left very little $$ for 
other things.

But I did have
2 buckets of baseballs.....
an old pallet....
and yards of burlap

A quick search on Pinterest...
and here is what I put together.


Chalkboard with the pledge of allegiance
written on it.

Two painted burlap flags tied onto
a Y shaped piece of driftwood 
Sweet Husband found....

tucked into a garden urn filled
with coral...
I think it turned out right cute! 




  
old baseballs painted 
red, white and blue


burlap pendant flags
I just painted the burlap
(inspired by Pottery Barn's)


And our favorite project....
A pallet flag!

I LOVE IT!! 

Sweet husband likes it
so much he wants
it to stay up all year..
And I kinda do too!


Another view of the bunting..






 The mailbox had to have a little something


One more picture of the flag...

I hope everyone is enjoying
their summer...and gearing
up to celebrate the 4th!

WOW WOW and WOW!!! Fantastic and I think that rendition of America the Beautiful by Ray Charles(I always think of him as "my baby, Ray Charles" is the best ever. Thank you for the music and the photos.

So festive and patriotic. You did a wonderful job on the pallet flag and the white bench looks so nice beneath it. You could keep that up all year.
