Thought I should share my simple, inexpensive ideas for decorating our doorstep
for the 4th of July BEFORE the month is over!
(You'll have to remember to look at this next June. LOL)
We were really tight financially in June... okay more like... REALLY TIGHT!!!
I always struggle spending money on the non-necessities during times like these,
when we are trying to catch up financially from a crazy month
including moving house, going on vacation and slow sales.

However, while I was walking through Walmart getting my groceries,
I saw some (cheap) cute decorations and justified purchasing them.
I took it out of the weekly food budget.
I think all the decor, plants and flag cost under $30. SCORE!
|Havilah, my sister, gave me a Paper Wreath for Christmas. I LOVE IT!|
I've hung it on my front door and have envisioned decorating it for every season.
(Pictures to come!)
|I came across some 4th of July cupcake liners. |
They came with toothpicks topped with starts.
I attached them to my wreath like flowers and pinned them with the toothpicks.
|I LOVE how they turned out!|
| I planted my flower pots with 4th of July colored flowers. |
The flowers were on sale and I purchased the soil from a neighbor.
(The joys of being a one-car family and stuck at home!)
Aren't they lovely?
