This Independence Day looks so different for our family. In the 19 years that I have been with my husband, we have always done the same thing. Pack up, head to the creek and spend the afternoon with all of our extended family. The children swim in the creek, and the adults lounge in their chairs, chatting, making multiple trips to the table to snack on foods. The sound of fireworks, kids splashing, and the endless chatter has made for some wonderful memories.Read More
The day before Independence Day, the birthday of our great country. It is one of my favorite holidays for it's patriotic pride of our great country, and for the memories of sitting along the creek bank, swimming, eat delicious picnic food with our large extended family and watching late night fireworks. I am a little late in adding any touches of red, white and blue to our home but I added a few flags and it gave our home just the touch of patriotic pride that it needed.Read More
Learn how to make your own rustic flag holder with an unpainted wooden furniture leg, a drill bit and some American flags.
Lowes sells various sizes and kinds so you can pick the one you like the most. They have a piece that screws in on the bottom but just unscrew that and your piece will sit flat.
I painted the middle section with this Antiquing Glaze and the bottom and the top were painted with black paint.
This part may look scary but I promise it is not. You will need to drill holes for your flags to fit into. So find a drill bit just slightly bigger than the size of the pole and drill one in the top.
I then drilled 4 holes evenly around the sides for the rest of the flags. Add your flags and your finished!
