Memorial Weekend Projects

Anyone got great plans for this summer kick off weekend? 

DIY holiday weekend projects

The weather here on the East Coast is a little iffy for all 3 days.

They really haven't committed to anything. Could rain, could be sunny... so what to do? 

When I woke up this morning and saw the sun I got excited about the summer weekend and pulled out my DIY flag decorations.

This flag table runner is one of my favorites!

I hung a vertical flag I made last year on the chippy shutters that surround my front door.

Then I quickly created this window flag project I've been putting off. 

I found the inspiration from Angie at Knick of Time.

This project literally took me 15 minutes to put together and it looks fantastic!

Lastly I put out my Americana Mason jars which are perfect for cut flowers.

I hope you like my DIY summer holiday decorations and you get a chance to create a few of your own this weekend. 

As for me if the sun stays out you will find me right here on my deck with a drink in my hand and the grill fired up. 

See how I painted this chair to bring it back to life!

Have a great holiday weekend friends!

Please don't forget the men and women who died fighting for our country so we can enjoy these beautiful weekends!
