I just love decorating my front porch for the Fourth of July!!!
You can see the whole Patriotic porch HERE!
But, I always try to add one more thing each year!
This year its Wooden Firecrackers!!!
These are so stinkin easy, it’s obscene!!!
I asked Hubby to cut some 4×4 posts we had leftover from our Arbor/Patio Construction.
I didn’t obsess about the exact measurements…..I just said…….
“I want em staggered”!!
He did fabulous! I painted one red (crimson), white and navy blue! Sorry, no pics of actual painting. I was frantically looking for my camera!!
I drilled holes in the tops of the 4×4’s for copper wiring that I curved around a pencil and spray painted silver!
Wrapped the three together with some white rope we had lying around the house and spray painted a wooden star silver that I found in my craft box!!!
I love a project that is so simple, yet adds much punch! The possibilities are endless with these….think of all the different adornments you could do! I chose to keep it simple.
Right now, I have them by my front door but we have more 4×4’s so I think we’ll make one more to stagger on the stairs with my lanterns!
Maybe even make a taller set to place by the front door!
There ya go!!! EASY PEASY!! That’s my motto!
I’ve added a couple more “little” touches that I’ll share when the whole porch is done this weekend!
Next post, I’ll show you how I decorated the inside for the fourth but didn’t use any Red, White or Blue!
Here’s a peek!……
I think it’s the rebel in me!!
Until next time……….
