Summer in the United States brings Memorial day, the 4th of July and Labor Day. All of these Holidays celebrate American pride. Yet, many people don’t even have a flag in their yards! Yes, a simple flag and it’s not complicated you can get them at any local store or you can buy them online.

If you already have a flag or your looking for something different and unique. There are many fun ways to display your flag or your patriotism in another way. I found a few on Pinterest that I just had to share with you.

DIY Garden Pallet Planter Box

Recently my sister did this amazing DIY Garden Pallet Planter project that I just had to share with you. She got the pallets for free, picked up the plastic container and created this amazing garden planter. It’s so easy to construct and most of the time you can get pallets for free from your local stores. You may even find some for sale on Craigslist.

Creating Your DIY Garden Pallet Planter

As you can see from above all she did was nail the pallets together to form a box. You may want some help lining everything up, but she did it all on her own. All you have to do is make sure it will hold the container you have chosen.

Then add your choice of siding to the pallets and paint it. Her result is the one below The purple really stands out and creates a great focal point in her yard. She also added some cute butterflies she found at the dollar store.
