Patriotic Porch

luvs2clickJuly 1, 2014

Did a fun project today - spray painted my dried allium seedheads to look like fire crackers. Plopped them in a sap bucket filled with sand, stuck in a flag and called it a day. Looks great beside the wooden washtub stand holding the blue canner full of geraniums. Also a white carpenters ruler with red numbers folded into a star. Porch is finally gussied up for the 4th.

Allium painted up nicely & love the star. Adds a lot to the look of the canner full of flowers. Nice display! TFS Jan
