Patriotic Ice Cream Freezer * Front Porch Decor

When I think of the 4th of July, many words come to mind....

And when I think about celebrating our independence, any one of the following might come to mind...
family and friends
red, white, blue
picnics * cookouts
homemade ice cream

When I was decorating my front porch for the 4th, I decided to make an arrangement to greet my family and friends at the front door.  As I began to plan, I knew that my "newest" acquisition, a vintage ice cream freezer, had to play a part...because who doesn't like some homemade ice cream on the 4th!?!?  So I grabbed my $5 auction find and set to work on decorating it.  I gathered some silk flowers in red, white, & blue, a nice sized flag, and an empty wine bottle...and I set to work!

I wedged the wine bottle between the metal and the outside barrel parts.  It holds the flag perfectly!  I just stuck flowers around the bottle to cover it and to fill in the freezer.  I love the metal part of the freezer, so I wanted that to still show...I think it adds character!  And VOILE'!!  Such an EASY and CUTE DIY!!!

It adds the perfect touch to my front porch!

Happy 4th, my friends!
May we always remember that Freedom is NOT Free!
Thank you to those that have and continue to sacrifice for our GREAT country, and fight for our freedom!!!!
God bless you all...and...
