Every so often, my BBFFs (best bloggy friends forever) get together for a group post. A post where each of us shares something in a particular theme and then we group all of our projects from years’ past too. This time we chose Patriotic Crafts and Recipes.
Perfect since Summer is nearly here, right?
At first, I thought I’d throw together a fun craft that I could use to decorate my porch. I love using patriotic colors for summer decorating. But then I looked at my porch. And I realized it needed a whole lot more than one simple craft.
It needs a complete overhaul.
Have you heard the saying, “Ain’t nobody got time for that”? Yeah, well, I’ll make time . . . eventually. In the meantime I decided I could still have a patriotic porch.
I just painted it!
Vintage red chairs with comfy pillows (trust me, they’re comfy), tons of red geraniums, of course a hanging porch swing, a little USA banner for the door and Kitty Cat supervising the entire scene.
Or a small dog. Drawing an animal that’s only 1 inch tall is tougher than I thought.
Anyway, I’m sure you all have your summer decorations up already. Right? Even so, you still might like to print off this Patriotic Porch for a little extra red, white and blue cheer on a wall or table somewhere.
You could even print it on watercolor paper and paint it yourself!
Click the photo or here to download.
But if you don’t want to paint it, just download this one here.
If you want to add your own patriotic message, download this printable without it.
There! Now I have at least one porch all decked out for the summer. If only the real one could be done as quickly.
I just bet my BBFFs have some great patriotic projects for your porch and inside the house too. I can’t wait to check them all out! And don’t miss all of the great recipes below the crafts!
