Shabby Chic Flag for the 4th of July

If you follow my blog,  you know that I love to decorate with soft colors.    I decorate the front yard with the traditional red, white and blue....but in our more private area,  I decorate with softer colors for the Patriotic holidays.  

   I have been thinking about making a shabby chic flag for the porch and this afternoon I got out my fabric and designed a flag.

Here is my creation!

My banner is plastic tablecloths from Dollar Tree......

The banner was not only inexpensive,  but should weather well if we should get some rain here in Eastern New Mexico....not too likely as we don't get a lot of!

I made a wreath for the door with the same fabric that I used for the flag.    

 Memorial Day porch.........................4th of July porch

Patriotic metal first and last name both begin with a P

Southwest Style Shabby Chic porch......

Have a safe and Happy 4th!

  4. Very nice...I was going to get onto you about messing with the flag, but seriously, how lovely is that (Truly it is!). Have a joyful rest of the week, Penny. smiles

  5. Oh wow! Your porch is totally romantic! The new flag you have made in honor of our country is very shabby chic. It is beautiful! Your bunting too is lovely. You are so super talented!
    Wishing you a wonderful holiday,

  6. What a great idea! I don't decorate patriotic very much as red white and blue doesn't really go with my home's interior. Now I can rethink it. Thanks!

  7. Oh Penny you are so creative and resourceful! Thank you for joining us again at Celebrate Your Story and have a happy 4th.

  8. Great banner!
