4th of July Decoration Ideas
With 4th of July only a couple of weeks away, you might be wondering what creative ways can you do to decorate your home and celebrate Independence Day. Below are some great ways to express your creativity and show your national pride using tulle, ribbon, embellishments, fabrics, and other crafts material.
Make this patriotic tulle wreath using red, white, and blue sparkling tulle. You can use a 12” styrofoam wreath form which can be purchased at any crafts store. Tie pieces of tulle in a flag pattern around the styrofoam. Embellish it with three glittered silver stars and use 1 ½ striped grosgrain ribbon or polka dot ribbon to hang the wreath on your door.
This is a great project for your kids to do. Instructions for making these rocket decorations are here. You can use red polka dot grosgrain ribbon, navy striped ribbon, or plain white ribbon to decorate the bottom of the rockets.
Patriotic Paper Decorations
If you are on a tight budget, these patriotic paper decorations are the way to go. Simply buy some blue, white and red paper. Cut them into strips that are the same size. Wrap the strips around a pencil so that they curl. Place all your curled paper into a jar with the red ones on bottom, white in the middle, and blue on the top. Then tie a ribbon of your choice around the jar; Paper Mart’s Flag sheer organza ribbon is a great option for this project.
Popsicle stick flags
This is also an easy project for your kids to take part in for 4th of July. Get 8 popsicle sticks and lay them next to each other so that they form a rectangle. Tape off a square on the left hand corner and paint it blue. Then paint the rest of the popsicle sticks in alternating red and white color. Once the paint has dried, glue the popsicle sticks onto cardstock. Glue rhinestones on the blue area as the flag’s stars. You can even put a magnet on the back of the cardstock to display the flags on your fridge.
4th of July Flag Blocks
These flag blocks make the perfect decoration for your front porch patio. Follow the tutorial here and top it off by wrapping all the blocks with a 1 ½” red, blue, or white dobby satin ribbon.
