One of our coun­try’s Found­ing Fa­thers—Ben­jamin Franklin—is known for his quotes about fru­gal­ity. “Waste nei­ther time nor money, but make the best use of both,” Franklin wrote—an apt rule of thumb that cer­tainly can be ap­plied when tack­ling sea­sonal dis­play makeovers. With that in mind, be­ing thrifty and cel­e­brat­ing the Fourth of July nat­u­rally go hand in hand. Take his words to heart and cre­ate spec­tac­u­lar dec­o­ra­tions with items you find around your home or can pur­chase in­ex­pen­sively so you’ll have a big­ger bud­get for cel­e­bra­tory food and drink. Use our easy ideas to con­vert pa­rade flags, plain dishes, and even old cloth­ing into dy­namic decor that will en­hance your sum­mer get-to­geth­ers.
