We will be at our new home on Cape Cod
I decorated my porch
RED, WHITE AND BLUE
I found this old sifter at a thrift store
decided to make a floral arrangement in it
I purchased some red, white and blue artificial flowers
I made the banner!
You can find the
to make a banner like this in
my blog post
Thank you to
this tutorial which I found
February - March Issue
Prim Sisters Gazette
I bought some twig vines to put around my porch window
I wired a piece of floral styrofoam to the inside of the sifter
then covered it with moss
then I added the flowers
I used an old flag to attach the banner to
I drilled holes in the sides of the sifter
wire on the banner
I added rusty bells using rusty pins
using this recipe
1 c vinegar
3 tbls salt
Combine all ingredients in a throw away container or glass.
add bells, pins etc. and let set 1-2 days in mixture.
the mixture will most likely foam up and come over top of container
Remove items with a slotted spoon
put on cookie sheet with shallow side,
let sit in sun for day or too, can also dry indoors.
I cut out and painted a
Uncle Sam to put by the door
I love how it all came together!
