4th of July tablescape

I haven't had much time to get my 4th of July decorating done this year.  I have been concentrating on my backyard instead.  So needless to say I put together a little tablescape on the front porch using some wood crafts that I made awhile back.

I used to do tole painting on wood.  I have a scroll saw so I cut my own wood and paint it.  As soon as I get my house in order I will be doing this again.  I made the Uncle Sam bunny, the flag chicken and the firecrackers.

Next year I plan on decorating the whole front porch. When I got these items out of my craft room today I found more unfinished 4th of July projects.  I am planning on getting these done and using them next year also.

Have a safe and happy 4th of July everyone.

  2. Wow, you're very talented in working with wood. I love the flowers here as well. It's always a challenge getting some blue into a July 4th floral and I like the bits you used there. Fun use of the lace, too.
