I never dreamed a Dollar Tree DIY could transform into something so amazing. Decorating my front porch is one of my favorite places to get creative. With a few items from the Dollar Tree this porch decor DIY became such a cute patriotic display that will last the entire summer! This DIY was super easy to put together as shown in the few short steps below. I hope you’ll try one for your porch decorating this season.
Be sure to PIN this for later!
patriotic porch decor supplies
- Americana reusable shopping bag of your choice
- Selection of red, white and blue flower stems
- Old heavy books to weigh down the bag
- Floral foam blocks
- Inexpensive American flags
- Cotton stems (optional)
- Tin star picks or pin wheel picks
HOW TO MAKE GIFT BAG DECOR FOR YOUR PORCH
First grab a reusable bag from the Dollar Tree and add some weight to the bottom. I used old vintage books. Just a few should do the trick!
Next add some floral foam; also from the Dollar Tree. This is to make adding your florals easier.
Add in the floral stems of your choice.
Miniature American flags are a cute filler item as well.
I added some cotton stems as well to fill in the gaps.
Finally, place a few metal star picks or pinwheel picks into the floral arrangement to add some height to your design.
That’s it! Set it out on your front or back porch to enjoy the whole summer long!
easy GIFT BAG porch decor
This turned out so cute I thought and plan to use this same concept to decorate for the different seasons! It would look so good with a Christmas, Easter, Halloween or Fall bag as well, don’t you think? I paired it with this coordinating Summer little red truck patriotic doormat that is covering my hand-painted buffalo check doormat! If you missed the tutorial on the buffalo check mat, you can find it here!
