4th of July DIY Inspiration

Hosting a party for the 4th of July (or Olympics Opening Ceremony) and looking for some easy ways to decorate with red, white, and blue?  I’ve got you covered.  Each project links back to a post with instructions on what to do 🙂

Starfish American Flag

If you live by the coast, this is the perfect project.  Grab a canvas, some paint, a starfish and you’ve got a beachy American flag to display!

Ribbon & Throw Pillows

I love this idea from On Sutton Place — just put some white and green blooms out in natural jars, tie some red, white and blue ribbon around the top and your table will look effortlessly patriotic. Throw pillows are the easiest way to change the look of a space, so bring out some with fun, American colors and it’s an instant upgrade.

American Flag Mason Jars

If you have mason jars, small American flags, crushed up shells or sand, and some tea lights around your house then you’re ready to throw this together for a simple centerpiece.

Just like throw pillows instantly update seating, a wreath can update your front door!  This burlap wreath has a summery & coastal vibe without being too overwhelming.

Painted Mason Jars

This might be my favorite mason jar paint job.  There’s something about mason jars that are so American and the way Maison De Pax just added a plate underneath and white flowers in the jars is literally simply perfect.

If all else fails, just put out your American flag, crack open one of the new Bud / Bud light branded cans and raise one up for America’s birthday!
