Decorating for Independence Day is one of those many things I’ve always wanted to do, but never actually got around to doing. July 4th decorations and colors make me happy. I’m not usually a fan of country and primitive decorating, but I really do like it for holidays. I love the muted red, beige and blue look for home decor, but I also like the bright red, white and blue look for parties and clothing.
Whichever look you’re a fan of, you should try one of these fun, easy projects for your home, cookouts or just to wear to a parade.
- This is the easiest tie-dye project I’ve ever seen. There is very little mess involved, and it would be easy for the kids to do. You could make one for every family member!
2. I am in love with these two free patriotic printables from My Fabuless Life. Probably the easiest décor project on here, too; just print and frame!
3. Pulling apart pallets isn’t the easiest task, but you could use any scrap wood for the DIY Pallet Flag. I love the quirky look of it and it looks like a really fun project.
4. For your cookout or just something fun to keep the kids busy all summer, Charles and Hudson give complete instructions to make your own Stars and Stripes Beanbag Toss Boards.
5. An entertaining project for the kids, this 4th of July activity will be something the whole family can enjoy looking at while preparing for the holiday.
6. If you don’t have sidewalks or a paved driveway, you can paint the stars on your lawn, instead!
7. These red, white & blue mason jars are great for holding utensils for your party, and look really pretty with flowers, too.
8. Similar to the jars above, these mason jar lanterns allow little, star-shaped lights to shine through for nighttime parties or on the front porch.
9. The Big Striped Bag Crochet Pattern page says it holds two Chihuahuas. You can also use it for groceries or a trip to the beach.
10. These free, printable bottle wraps add a festive touch to a boring bottle of water. Just print and wrap – easy!
11. I love these denim placemats! They could be used year-round, but when you add a red and white napkin, they become instantly patriotic!
12. These too-too-cute star garlands are made from paper. I love that she let her son help with the sewing.
13. This burlap pillow has a very country look and is quick to make.
14. Make this charming flag with a dowel and some scrap fabrics and some lace. This looks really fun to do!
