American Flag Decoration Ideas
Okay, enough about that let's start with my very first post.
4th of July Decorating Ideas
Last year's patriotic decor ideas included my back porch. Many of these ideas can be added to your back porch from items you have laying around the house.
One of my favorite American flag decorations is stick flags. Either pick up many at the store or order them online because there are so many things you can do with a stick flag. They are also inexpensive and can be placed in fun places like plants. There are so many different ways to decorate with American flag decor!
So for more ideas for your front or back porch and a few other ideas in between check out my 4th of July decorating ideas.
Patriotic Free Printable Banner
If you jumped over to that last post mentioned you may have noticed this pennant banner on the wall. Well, it is a free printable that I created.
It is really easy to make. All you need is a printer, cardstock, binding tape, and sewing machine. Actually, you can glue it instead of sewing it but I sewed mine with a contrasting thread.
The nice thing about this patriotic pennant banner is that you can use it for any time of year. It doesn't have a flag on it so it would be cut in a little boys room too.
So here is the pennant banner template post so you can go grab it and get more detailed directions. If you are looking for more fun patriotic printables try our Etsy shop where we have a whole category on patriotic wall art and prints you can download and print.
4th of July Tablescape
Does anyone else love to invite friends over for fireworks and a BBQ for an independence day celebration? Here is an idea to jazz up your patriotic decorations for a dinner party.
This 4th of July tablescape can be used for any American celebrating holiday. Here is a great example of using vintage items you have around the house.
There are all kinds of goodies on this table that fall under American decoration ideas. I started with this canvas drop cloth runner I made, used my farmhouse vase holder and added some of those lovely stick flags.
But do you notice something different about these flags? This time I added some Betsy Ross flags. This table was inspired by colonial times. So if you get a chance go check out this 4th of July tablescape and see if you find other colonial influences.
I love these Betsy Ross flags so much until I used them on another patriotic centerpiece. Here is a simple idea to bring your celebration onto the back porch.
This vintage patriotic centerpiece is basically layering a red and white plate. Then a vintage pitcher filled with wooden spoons. And last topped off with stick flags. There are more fun ideas on this easy patriotic table setting. And you can use these ideas anywhere from outside to inside.
Patriotic Ideas using Red, White and Blue Decorations
And last is this year's patriotic ideas using red, white, and blue decorations home tour. Here you will find another better way to decorate your front porch, entryway, and more. But this time I added the mantle including a DIY farmhouse sign that you can create too.
If you looked at the first post you will see my front porch there too. There is one item that stayed the same all summer long and that is this memorial wreath which is also a 4th of July wreath and Labor day wreath. LOL! See what I mean. It stays up all summer long.
After the front door, you get more American flag decoration ideas on the inside. There are ideas from the kitchen to the living room.
Patriotic Shiplap Farmhouse Sign
If you have a fireplace don't forget your mantle. The fireplace is the heart of the home and a great place to hang a flag is over the mantle.
But in our home instead of a flag, I made a patriotic shiplap farmhouse sign. This DIY farmhouse sign is easy to make and you can paint it as I did, stain it or paint a flag design on it. The possibilities are endless.
Now you are probably wondering why I love decorating for patriotic holidays. Well, first I am so thankful to live in a country of freedom. Many people have worked hard and sacrificed their lives for our freedom.
I also love history and there is loads of history wrapped around our American flag. If you noticed I have another historical flag called a Bennington Flag. Plus the first photo of the giant flag in my entryway I received when my Dad passed. It was flown over the state capital the day he died. Needless to say, it is very special to me.
So, when you are decorating for any of the patriotic holidays think about using some flags you have around the house. Also, go to a dollar store like Dollar Tree and pick up about a dozen stick flags. And last go through all your goodies and see if you have anything that is red, white or blue. Incorporate them into your design.
Before you know it your home will show your American pride.
