Some show their patriotism by blowing stuff that looks awesome. Other make decor that drapes the house in red, white, and blue. This list is for the latter half, which is not to say that I don’t love fireworks!
If you’re like me, you wait to the last minute to hang Christmas lights, decorate Easter eggs, and carve up pumpkins for Halloween. This year I decided to go the quick and easy route to make sure that venerable orange decoration adorned my porch.
Cut and Gutted
As per usual, start by cutting the top off the pumpkin. I find a bread knife to work the best. Make sure the hole is big enough to put your arm through.
Start pulling out all the “guts” and placing it in a bowl. Separate out the seeds as you go if you like to use them for recipes. Finish up this step by scraping the inner surface with a spoon and disposing of the peelings.

Junk Drawer Pumpkin
Collect corks, screws, buttons, paper clips, and rubber bands to utilize on this junk drawer creation. This stuff rarely gets used. You might as well use it to create a pumpkin decorated up like Frankenstein’s monster.

4th of July Wreaths from Etsy
If you are a DIY type, the following three wreaths are all handmade. And if you don’t have time or motivation to make it yourself, you can find them on Etsy!
This colorful wreath is made from classic red, white, and blue napkins sorted into an American flag. My wife made a similar wreath from coffee filters a couple years ago and I can tell you that it is a time intensive project! It also takes some talented hands to have it come out looking so good, like the one below.
Spring is officially hear and Easter weekend is just ahead. Decorations of pastel yellow, blue, and pink and are no doubt going to be in abundance. Collected in this post today are creative ways to implement these colors into your house for this holiday.
