I normally don’t decorate my front porch for every little holiday, but with Memorial Day fast-approaching, I thought I could do a fun little red, white, and blue makeover then use it again for the 4th of July. The best part? This makeover cost me $50. WOOT!
And everything was found at Dollar General (don’t you love one-stop shopping?). Well I’m so happy to announce that I’m a new ambassador for Dollar General and couldn’t be more excited… mostly because I love to show you guys how to nest for less and prove that you can decorate on a budget.
One of my favorite scores from my shopping trip were these red flowered outdoor pillows for $8 each.
Sitting next to them on our end table is a little red, white and blue flower arrangement. I added a little flag to it for $1.
And now my favorite… the mesh wreath. I couldn’t believe Dollar General had this for $10, but I decided to add a little something extra to it for Memorial Day so I grabbed a little 4×6 clear frame for $1.
Inside the frame I placed this little printable I made…
Just right click on the file and save to your desktop.
Print and trim to size (4×6 inches).
So yeah, $10 plus $1 frame. Not too shabby.
I just used a bunch of hot glue to keep the frame in place.
I also grabbed a blue flower pot for $6 and filled it with some patriotic flowers and another $1 flag.
Outdoor pillows: $16
Flower pot: $6
Mesh wreath: $10
Clear photo frame: $1 2 Flags: $2
Patriotic flower arrangement: $5

For Memorial Day and 4th of July… woot!
