The Shady Porch: 4th of July Door Decoration

4th of July Door Decoration

My family has always been thrifty. We take pride in getting a deal and saving $$. At the same time, we like nice things and enjoy living a good life. Holidays are a time of celebration with friends and family, but can break the budget if you don't pay attention. When hosting these celebrations, I try to go the extra mile to make them memorable but also affordable!

This weekend we're celebrating Independence Day. In preparation to our annual cookout, I've started my decorating.One of my favorite thrifty stores is our local Dollar Tree (everything is $1.00), and I spent just about $5.00 to make this patriotic Front Door Decoration. 



1 Wine bottle gift bag



4 flower bundles - 2 red & 2 white


1 foam flower pot insert


1 Patriotic bow (you actually get 2 for $1)


That's it!


Partially opened wine gift bag
The only thing that might need some explanation is how I fixed the bag. Basically, I left the bottom of the bag folded and taped it so it would not open completely. Then I expanded the upper portion of the bag to hold the foam flower pot insert and flowers.


Finally, here it is on my front door! I hope it makes everyone feel welcome...because they are!

Happy 4th of July to you and yours!
