Red,White and Blue Decorations
Recently I shared a 4th of July tablescape idea that is filled with red, white and blue decorations. It was so fun and inspiring until I couldn’t wait to share more ideas. So, let’s start outside on my small front porch.
Patriotic Small Front Porch
I want to encourage you to think of your front porch whether it is small or large as another room of your home. This space is an indication of what guests will receive inside.
So here are a few easy changes that instantly give it patriotic feels.
Starting at the top and working our way down begin with adding a wreath or garland around the door. I have had this wreath for many years and I am still not tired of it so if you have a wreath you can put up for each patriotic holiday go ahead and include it.
One thing I changed on this wreath this year as opposed to last year is the way it is hung. In my 4th of July decorating ideas last year I hung the wreath with a metal hanger. This year I decided on a ribbon for a softer touch.
Another inexpensive and fun touch is adding these Target dollar spot pinwheels to the planter.
Simply drop a few pinwheels for flags in your planter and like magic, you have given your planter some red, white and blue decorations.
Talk about easy!
And last for the front porch pick up a red, white and/or blue rug to layer your doormat. I found this one on clearance and boy did it transform the front porch with color.

Now let’s walk in the front door and give our guest a little more independence day feels in the entryway.
Here are some more easy ideas and cheap too. Again I raided the dollar spot at Target and pulled out a few of my own items from last year.
Starting from the top I added a stick American stick flags to my lamb’s ear wreath. This wreath get’s decorated all year long. I got the wreath from an Etsy shop called The Whimsical Door. She has loads of other amazing wreaths but this one is versatile.
There are so many places you can add stick flags. You can add them to flower arrangements, plants or wreath as I did here.
Next, add some metal stars or something similar to the side of your mirror or art. I used a tiny little nail so there would be a small hole to fill once I take the stars down.
If you have a bench anywhere in your home toss some pillows onto the bench. These pillows are from last year but you can find cheap pillows in the dollar spot at Target also.
And if you have a sprig of flowers tie a cute red and white ribbon around it and lay it on the bench. Little touches like this make a design go from ordinary to unique.
Now let’s take a few steps into my kitchen where I added a couple of simple touches.

There is something special about adding holiday decor to your kitchen area. I have a small sitting room attached to my kitchen.
If you have a hutch in your home consider adding a pennant banner to the hutch. I have a pennant banner free printable where you can make your own.
It is really easy to make if you have basic sewing skills. You can add this one to your hutch, china cabinet, bookcase or anywhere. Or you can shop for one like I did this year.
Now let’s head back to the living room which is the last room where I added some patriotic touches.

Living Room Mantle
This year I went all out on the mantle. What I mean is that I decided to make some art to use on the fireplace mantle each year.
Since the mantle is the heart of the home I feel like holiday decorations are not complete until the mantle fits into the design.
Keeping things inexpensive I was inspired by this “liberty” wood letter cutout and an old canvas frame I found at Goodwill.
This project is super easy. Using the frame I was able to add a shiplap look, paint it with Fusion mineral paint and add the “liberty” lettering. And now I have some art for the mantle.
I will be sharing how to make this piece on the next post. But if making a piece is not your thing consider hanging a flag here. It brings a home design together when you include the mantle.
Well, there you have some ideas for red, white and blue decorations for your patriotic holiday. I hope you have been inspired to do some independence day decorating in your home. Or maybe I should say flag day, presidents day, labor day, memorial day. Okay, I think you get the picture.
Did you know you can pull out these decorations before memorial day and leave them out all summer long? Yes, they can last your whole summer. Which makes this style of decor even better.
