What’s not to love about celebrating July 4th with family and friends? The yummy grilled food, the fireworks filling the night sky, and the memories made while lighting your own fireworks in the driveway make the day a true American celebration!
Do you decorate your home for the holiday? As compared to other holidays, my inventory of July 4th decorations is pretty slim. So, I decided to put my DIY skills to the test by crafting a patriotic wall hanger to display on our front porch. I wish I could claim this idea as my own, but I remember seeing something similar to it on Pinterest years ago. Let me tell you…I’ve never completed a DIY project in less time and I’m super satisfied with the results! You’re going to love how simple it is to make a Galvanized Metal Planter with American Flags, too.
Supplies: I purchased a galvanized metal planter from Kirklands on clearance (only $7) and rectangular blocks of flower foam (only $3 from at Walmart for a set of three block). Also, I bought four packages of small American flags (4 flags per bag) from Walmart.
Instructions: Insert one flower foam rectangular block into the metal planter. Then, insert 12-15 small flags inside the foam at varying angles.
Optional: I reused a burplap bow, once used on an old wreath, and hot glued it to the front of the galvanized planter. It was that simple! This four-step DIY project couldn’t be simpler!
I love how eye-catching the American flags are from the street! Where would you hang it? The galvanized planter could be displayed on your home’s front door or from a garage outdoor sconce.
How can you reuse the metal planter once July 4th is over? You could easily swap out the American flags for artificial flowers or twigs depending on the holiday season.
