Today I am joining my friend Whitney at Come Home for Comfort to share our Fourth of July decor! Stop by her blog and see her patriotic decor too!
My favorite holiday to decorate is Christmas, but a close second would be the Fourth of July! I love fireworks and hearing patriotic songs. Seeing all of the red, white, and blue decorations makes my heart happy. With all of the turmoil going on in our country lately, decorating for the Fourth of July is a reminder to be thankful for all of the brave military who defend our freedom and our forefathers who established this great country.
One of my favorite ways to decorate for any holiday is a wreath on the front door. Grapevine wreaths are perfect for changing out decor easily for the different seasons and holidays. On my wreath I wrapped some scrap fabric that I cut into strips. Then I added a few American flags and a flower made from coffee filters!
*By the way, you may have noticed that my front door is no longer white. We recently had our house painted (yay!) and decided on a blue door. We love it!
In February, I updated our entryway and hung an open frame on the wall, and I had originally put a vase and flower in the center of the frame. But I have enjoyed changing out the center of the frame for different seasons and holidays. I kept it simple for the Fourth of July and added a small wreath and metal star.
In the living room I decorated the entertainment center by hanging this red, white, and blue pennant made from scrap fabric and twine from the Dollar Tree. It is the same pennant that I made for my son’s nautical nursery, but I decided to display it in the living room for the Fourth of July. I love using what I already have!
Above the pennant I stacked some vintage red and blue books. The blue book is an atlas of the American presidents, so I thought that was appropriate. On the books is a milk glass candy dish that I inherited from my grandmother. Next to it is a mason jar filled with sand and a bunch of American flags. Super simple!
Lastly, I added another mason jar filled half way with marbles left over from my teaching days and a couple of American flags to the dining room table. Some days this ends up on top of the corner shelf because my son thinks the flags are toys. 🙂
