Easy American Flag Display for the Front Door

I try to decorate our front door according to the seasons and holidays but sometimes it doesn’t happen. Just last month I wanted to change the spring front door basket for something patriotic for Memorial Day and never got around to it.

I wasn’t going to let the 4th of July come and go without some red, white and blue on the front door so I decided to do an easy American flag display using my trusty hanging basket. 

Add a bit of red, white and blue to your front door with this easy American flag display using a hanging basket, floral foam and flags.

This is a quick and easy craft (typical for me) and it only cost $1 a piece for 14 flags. 

Supplies for American Flag Display for the Front Door

  • hanging basket (World Market)
  • floral foam
  • 13, 12×18 American flags (I got mine at Walmart)
  • utility knife

As always, with the crafts I do, I went into this without a plan. I started by placing the flags here and there in the basket to see what I wanted to do. Once I took a look, I decided that I wanted to place them at different levels so you could see them all. In order to do that, I had to cut down the sticks of a few of the flags.

It’s a pretty big basket so I ended up using 13 of the 14 flags (I didn’t want to use too many ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). It took a few minutes to get them placed just so, but the floral foam helped to keep them in place.

Once the flags were placed, I tried a red and white ribbon around the basket. It was ok but I decided that simpler was best. The focus is the flags, as it should be.

It’s definitely a large display but I think that if I would have gone any smaller with the flags, they would have gotten lost in the basket.

Once 4th of July and Labor Day have passed, I’ll remove the flags and store them away until next year. That’s why I love this basket. It’s so versatile and easy to change with the seasons.

      Thanks so much Kaycee! It certainly is large and full, bigger than I had planned, but the basket is large so I think it’s ok.

      So glad to hear that my project inspired you. I’d love to hear if you make something. ๐Ÿ™‚
