I'm not one of those creative people who puts up decorations for every holiday. I usually just change a few things seasonally, and then for Christmas. Last week, my friend Betsy from My Five Men showed something she did for the 4th, and I decided I needed to put out a few things too.
Here's what I did.
This old milk can is from my Dad's farm. It's in our garage by the door. I put different decorations in it, depending on the season. I found this cute metal flag that says "Land that I Love" at Hobby Lobby, and it sits perfectly in the milk can.
I found this free printable of the Pledge of Allegiance online and printed it off.
This is another spot I change depending on the season. I had the little flags and put them in a small jar. The God bless America is another free printable. I painted a piece of wood black and attached the printable to it.
It's not a lot, but it I do like these little splashes of Americana!
