Patriotic Outdoor Decor {Memorial Day}

First of all, I want to take a moment to honor the brave men and women who have given their lives for our freedom as Americans. Memorial Day is not about a vacation day filled with hot dogs and corn on the cob. It’s a day set aside to honor those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice! I do think it’s appropriate to exercise our freedoms on this day and to enjoy life as we do in this great country – but not without first acknowledging the true purpose of the day!

I’m very proud to be an American and always set up some kind of patriotic decor in my home during the summer. I decided to make wreaths for both doors over the weekend, and grabbed a couple inexpensive items that gave my home a nice patriotic touch!

Grapevine wreaths are so versatile! If this one looks familiar, it’s because I used it at Christmas as well. 🙂 The welcome sign and star are one piece that I picked up at Dollar General for $2.50. I bent the top part of the sign’s hanger around the top of the wreath and tied it down with jute. The bow on the side came from my extra ribbon stash – I might change that if I find some ribbon I like better. It works for now!

Yeah, this is the same idea I used on my front door at Christmas! I’m not very creative and like to stick with what I have. I found the flags at the grocery store for $.50 each, and they gave me exactly the look I wanted with my silk flowers. My hubby suggested I put something heavy (pebbles or some kind of weight) in the bottom of the basket to keep it from leaning over. He’s so smart! It’s always nice when you can see part of the wreath or decoration from inside the house as well. Here’s the view from my living room!

  1. You are always so ready to honor those that are in Military Service, those that have been in service, and those that gave their lives for our country, and I applaud you for that.. We pray that we will always have the privilege of saying that we live in freedom, and as the forefathers laid down plans for us to have that honor, we each need to do our part to keep it so.

  2. So simple and cute! I love patriotic decor and celebrating America too! You can’t go wrong with red, white, and blue. I shared my front door wreath in a post yesterday, and it is a grapevine wreath that I have used multiple times for different seasons. Great minds think alike! 🙂
