4th of July Decorating

I wanted to make the yard a little festive for the upcoming 4th of July holiday and one easy way to do it is to make new cushion covers and pillows for our benches but I didn't want to spend the money on a ton of fabric. So, I went to the closet and pulled out some old sheets.

Then I simply sewed some straight lines around the edges.

And added a few stars.

And to seal the top, I just used snaps, which I sewed on by hand.

They turned out really festive.

Then I put them out on the benches.

And I added a little color to my alliums, out in the garden. And, I think they kind of look like sparklers.

And now I am just getting going. . .

But the yard will be ready in no time.
