Patriotic Decor for Your Home

Independence Day is one of our favorite holidays! July 4th calls for fireworks, family, friends, fun times and food! What more can you ask for? A few weeks ago, Mrs. P saw some cute DIY fourth of July lanterns on Pinterest. She got inspired to make some of her own. After a quick trip to Target, she put together 7 patriotic lighted decorations for our winding walkway. Here's how she did it:

1) Shop for the following items:
-Tin candle holder or lantern that emits light
-Small American flags
-Red, white and blue ribbon
-Tealights or battery candles
-Plastic tie wrap

2) Secure the flag onto the handle of the lantern with a tie wrap. Make sure it is nice and tight!

3) Cut the end of the tie wrap and make a knot around it with your ribbon. Make a bow and adjust the flag so that it is standing up straight.

4) Place your tea light or battery candle in the lantern and enjoy!

Have a festive and joyous 4th of July!
