DIY 4th of July Decorations

I love the bright colors of the 4th of July: the fireworks and red, white, and, blue everywhere.  To decorate for Independence Day, so far I’ve bought a pack of mini flags and lined my front yard landscaping with flags and popped one in the planter by my front door (unfortunately the 95 degree weather here hasn't been too kind to my plants as you can tell).  It got dark before I could take some more pictures, but here’s a sneak peek:
