Welcome Garden Flag

Now that I am on a roll sprucing up my front porch I thought I should add a new garden flag. I had the hardest time finding one I liked. They either had a huge sun or cheesy flowers on them, so once again I thought hmm...let me make my own.
After googling I found inspiration from Vintage Gwen. I think hers is cuter because of that adorable mini pennant garland. Gosh those ever popular pennants make everything better. Anywhoo I thought I would go in the burlap route.
I just cut the burlap to size, hemmed all edges, and free handed the words welcome with cute little cherry blossoms using acrylic paint. I thought it was still missing something so I added a small trim  and a poofy flower from left over vintage fabric from this post.

and that was it voila...new garden flag.

I think it looks so cute with my cheery chairs and pillows from this post.

aaaand.....since I can never leave well enough alone I thought I would add a cute little bow to those plastic patio pillows. All I did was......

there you go an even happier pillow!

the end.
